The Lithuania Selection saw 12 singers perform weekly in order to win the chance to represent Lithuania. At the end three remained in Vaidas, Monika and third singer Mia. The song “This Time” was chosen it a dedicated episode of the selection and the three finalists had to compete to get the change to sing it. Somehow it was decided both Monika and Vaidas would sing together. Lithuania are currently 29th to win.

Lyrics:
(Taken from eurovision.tv)

This time, I think I’m falling in love
This time, you’re sent from heaven above
Oh oh oh
My God, stop for a minute and think
How ‘bout we just go out for a drink
Oh oh oh
‘Cos every time I close my eyes
I feel you near

I’m feeling love, love, love
Round and round and round and round and round we go
I’m feeling love, love, love
Round and round and round and round and right in my heart

This time, I hope you don’t mind
I’ll help you put your troubles behind
Oh oh oh
I know there’s a reason for this
One kiss, and you will see what you’ve missed
Oh oh oh

I’m feeling love, love, love
Round and round and round and round and round we go
I’m feeling love, love, love
Round and round and round and round and right in my heart

Is this how it goes?
I don’t know…

  1. Greatest chemistry on stage from all duets !
    7/10
    #12/40
    #6/17
    Prediction : 2-5 in semi
    Good luck!

  2. Since,i followed the Lithuanian selection marathon i feel connected in a way with Monika and Vaidas.I like their song but even more i like those 2 together on stage.Such a positive vide.Good luck!

  3. The new song and video of Il Volo for “Canzone Per Te”.I really like it:

  4. Their whole selection was a farce let’s be honest. Was it a tie? No then why change rules last minute and send both? I hate countries who do selections and just change the results to fit what they want. Germany was the same deal.

    Just pick internally. Loads do

    I really like the Lithuanian song this year and wish Monika and Vaidas all the best. Btw, Vilnius is home to some of Europe’s most stunning churches. :)
