Right after the first heat of Eurovizija 2017 which took place last week and showed the first 6 acts which qualify to the next round, tonight sees the second heat of Lithuania’s selection.
How to watch
The show kicks off from 20:00 CET (21:00 local time) via the folowing channels:
- LRT Televizija
- LRT Lituanica
- Live webcast via lrt.lt
The new presenting duo Ieva Stasiulevičiūte and Gabriele Martirosianaite will present the tonight’s show where we see the next set of 12 acts out of the total 51. The acts will perform their entries publicly for the very first time in a bid to qualify to the next stage of the selection.
This evening’s acts will have to earn the votes of not only the viewing public, but also that of the specialist jury consisting of opera singer Sigutė Stonytė, music reviewer Ramūnas Zilnys, musicologist Darius Užkuraitis and singer Neda Malūnavičiūtė. Both the jury and televoting points will be ranked in Eurovision style.
The top ranked acts which receive the highest amount of points will qualify to the next stage of the show, kicking off from the 4 February. Six acts from tonight’s show will qualify to the next round.
