  1. Hmmm interesting, I hope Aiste looses, that desperate Aminata wannabe irritates me too much, to be honest..

  2. I guess I am running out of excuses, I got to listen to the finalists here at least :P

  3. Fusedmarc – ‘Rain of revolution‘ : They won over Aiste tonight I see. It started off ok but she is completely uncharismatic to deliver such a song and seems super anxious on stage. I don’t remember much of the song either. – 6/10

    Aistė Pilvelytė – ‘I’m like a wolf‘ : International jury really hated her apparently. She has chosen a concept and is devoted to delivering in the best possible way so props to her for that. She has the vocals to support this high energy song and the ending is pretty creepy/atmospheric in a good way. I get her although I am not sure she would be the best choice for esc – 7+/10

    Gabrielius Vagelis – ‘Feel myself free‘ : That intro from “Grande Amore” though and the Ivan looks.He should learn how to dress as well. On the positive things it is a well composed song without all the wtf factors lithuania usually brings on, there is a class here. The song is not amazing but stands out in a positive way. His vocals are a bit off at points and diction could be a tad better – 7/10

    Kotryna Juodzevičiūtė – ‘Love shadow‘ : This really reached the final ? She can’t sing that well, they are dressed awfully, she can’t move on stage and the song while ok with some good moments just drowns in all that mediocrity.And that chorus repeated by the backing vocals gets annoying after a while – 4-/10

    Paula – ‘Let u go‘ : The verses were very promising and she delivers them well..The annoying chorus kicks in then though accompanied by the awkward dancing and ruins it. – 6-/10 (for the good verses)

    Greta Zazza – ‘Like I love you‘ : That had a classy/edgy presentation overall and Greta is beautiful. She is vocally good and the song is quite catchy. Positively surprised – 7/10

    So imo it should be Aiste, Gabrielius or Greta with Aiste having a slight edge. Lithuania is not up for greatness this year either I am afraid.

  4. I haven’t watched the performances of the semi yet but Ieva out makes sense. Sasha really did his best last time so I feel bad for him. The good thing is Paula and Greta are canceling each other (I hate both). The lead singer of Fusedmarc was praised one time by the jury because of her awesome vocals… she sings bad, in fact, I think I don’t like the song because of her. Kotryna and Gabrielus are very good singers with bad songs. Finally, we have Aistė, the best choice from what they have. Lithuania should have picked a “joke” act, they had good ones, professionaly made and catchy… they are taking this too seriously and they haven’t realized yet that they can’t.

  5. I’ll listen to the winning song once they’ve found it. Good luck!

  6. Gabrielus has my favourite live rendition here; I like his vocals more than I like the song. Good luck to all hopefuls (I feel like this NF has been going on since the big bang took place).

  7. Despite the Aminata wannabe factor Aiste is streets better than the rest.

  8. Apparently, there is going to be a wildcard added to the final line-up based on online voting. Guess we’re still not done with “Get Frighten” lol.

    Based on performances, Aiste is my favorite.
    Based on the actual songs, Greta is my favorite
