Lithuania – This year’s Pabandom iš naujo 2021 starts tonight with the first heat out of two. 10 acts are taking part and 5 will qualify to the semi-final with a vote split with 50% jury and 50% televote.
At first, Lithuania revealed 23 acts who were selected to take part but in the end both Gintarė Korsakaitė and Evelina Sašenko withdrew so we’re down to 21. The Roop however are automatically qualified to the final. So we’re down to 20 entries, split in two heats of 10 acts. 5 will qualify through the semi-finals from both heats. Then the semi-final, which will feature 10 acts, will qualify 5 to the final, where they’ll join The Roop for a 6-act final.
This heat was already pre-recorded on January 12th and the juries have already cast their ballots. The jury members are Ramūnas Zilnys, Jievaras Jasinskis, Vytautas Bikus, Ieva Narkutė & Aistė Smilgevičiūtė (who represented Lithuania in 1999).
The hosts are Ieva Stasiulevičiūtė, Vytautas Rumšas Jr and Vaidas Baumila (who represented Lithuania in 2015). This is tonight’s line-up:
