Six More Qualify in the Third Heat of the Lithuanian Selection

The third heat of the newly named Lithuanian selection, Pabandom Iš Naujo has taken place, where the next 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 participants:

  • The Backs – Fully
  • Bernardas – Dad, Don’t Be Mad at Me
  • Justina Žukauskaitė – Breathe In
  • Rokas Povilius – Vilnius Calling
  • KaYra – Alligator
  • Lukas Bartaška – Where Is That Change?
  • Evgenya Redko – Far
  • Ruslanas Kirilkinas – Soldier’s Heart
  • Nombeko Augustė – Reikia man
  • Vitalijus Špokaitis – Nemušk savęs
  • Aistė Pilvelytė – Unbreakable
  • THE ROOP – On Fire

The jury awarded top points to THE ROOP, with Evgenya Redko receiving the 10 points. Aistė Pilvelytė came in third with the jury with her song, Unbreakable. The public vote didn’t differ too dramatically, with THE ROOP also finishing in top place with the public. In second was Aistė Pilvelytė, and in third was KaYra.

With the combined voting, here are the qualifiers:

  • THE ROOP – On Fire
  • Aistė Pilvelytė – Unbreakable
