Tonight the Lithuanian preselection marathon held its 8th round to search the country’s representative for Copenhagen. The five remaining artists performed two songs each. At the end one act should have been eliminated. Due to technical problems on the verification of the televoting the announcement of the results was postponed to Monday.
Lithuanias preselection is for sure one of the longest of this year’s season. At the beginning a total of ten shows were planned to search the
Lithuanian representative for Copenhagen, but due to very high viewing figures they extended the number of the shows to twelve. Tonight we saw the 8th show (the 9th if we include the jubilee show mid December). Two more will follow before the big final will finally be held on March 1st.
Just like last week the remaining five artists had to perform two songs each.
The songs (first round):
Mia – It’s not too late
Martynas Kavaliauskas – Worlds apart
Vilija Matačiūnaitė – Blowing out cobwebs
Vaidas Baumila – Attention
Monika Linkyte – You found me
Mia – It’s all about a boy
Martynas Kavaliauskas – Take a look at me now
Vilija Matačiūnaitė – Dying
Vaidas Baumila – Is this the way?
Monika Linkyte – Let’s share that luve tonight
A combination of jury and public vote decided who would get the opportunity to compete again
next week and who of the five artists would be eliminated
The jury voted as following:
Monika Linkyte 33 votes
Vilija Matačiūnaitė 26 votes
Vaidas Baumila 25 votes
Mia 21 votes
Martynas Kavaliauskas 15 votes
As there were problems with the verification of the televotes the announcement of the results was postponed to Monday. We will know then who will perform again next Saturday and can still hope to get the ticket to Copenhagen.
