Lithuanian Selection Launches, with the First Six Qualifiers Selected!

The first semi-final of the newly named Lithuanian selection, Pabandom Iš Naujo has taken place, where the first twelve acts took to the stage to present their potential Eurovision entries. The show was hosted by Gabrielė Martirosian, Giedrius Masalskis and Ieva Zasimauskaitė.

The results of the show were decided by a combination of jury voting (50%) and public voting (50%). Unlike in previous years, the jury will no longer comment on the performances, but rather watch the performances from a separate space in the studio. The public vote no longer shown during the show, and the results were revealed at the end of the show.

Here are the competitors:

  • Glossarium – Game Over
  • Baltos Varnos – Namų dvasia
  • Justinas Lapatinskas – Highway Story
  • Aistay – Dangus man tu
  • Petunija – Show Ya
  • Lukas Norkūnas – Atsiprašyk
  • Donata – Made of Wax
  • Andy Vaic – Why Why Why
  • Aika – Paradas
  • Meandi – Drip
  • Monika Marija – If I Leave
  • Gabrielius Vagelis – Tave čia randu

The jury awarded their top points to Monika Marija, followed by Meandi and Baltos Varnos who both achieved 10 points. The public also enjoyed Monika Marija, awarding her the 12 points. In second place with the public was Baltos Varnos, then Meandi.

With the combined voting, here are the qualifiers:

  • Monika Marija – If I Leave
  • Baltos Varnos – Namų dvasia
  • Meandi – Drip
  • Gabrielius Vagelis – Tave čia randu
  • Andy Vaic – Why Why Why
