Lithuania: Selection Marathon Begins on Saturday!

lithuaniaLithuania – It’s that time again… the marathon Eurovizijos selection process, with almost inexplicable rules, that is the Lithuania national selection contest. Over the next 8 weeks acts will perform all sorts of songs, alone and with each other, their own songs and other peoples songs.There are 28 entrants split into 2 groups of singers – those with their own songs and those entering without a song.

This Saturday, 9th January sees the fun start and the first 8 acts in the category of having their own song launch the selection process.

The first show has already been recorded but broadcasting starts at 20:00 (CET) and you can watch online here.

First heat:

Alice Way‘Heroes’
Dovydas Petrosius‘Starlight’
Behind The Moon ‘Did it All’
Erica Jennings – ‘Leading Me Home’
Elena Jurgaityte – ‘I Won’t Come Back’
Vlad Max – ‘Don’t Wanna Let It Go
Petunia – ‘Tomorrow’
Donny Montell – ‘I’ve Been Waiting for This Night

5 of the 8 acts will progress to the next round after a jury/televote. The Lithuania jury consists of Darius Užkuraitis, Ramūnas Zilnys, Donatas Ulvydas & Dalia Michelevičiūtė, and the international jury, Denis Ingoldsby(Producer, UK), Dave Holmes (Guitarist, UK) and Peter Fraudenthaler (singer Fools Gold, Germany).

The Grand Final will take place on 27th February 2016.
