Show 8 of Eurovizija 2017, the Lithuanian national selection for the Eurovision Song Contest, has concluded this evening with four further acts qualifying to the next stage of the competition.
Tonight saw a further 8 acts that had already competed in the earlier heats perform their entries live again to both the viewing public and jury, singing for the right to continue and move forward to the next stage of the competition.
Show 8 qualifiers
- Fusedmarc – Rain of revolution
- Gabrielius Vagelis – Feel myself free
- Paula – Let u go
- Kotryna Juodzevičiūtė – Love shadow
They will join the four qualifiers from Show 7 for a total of eight entries participating in the semifinal to be held next Saturday.
In total, a maximum of 6 acts will compete in the Grand Final of the national selection on the 11 March, in which the winner will be determined via a 50/50 jury/public vote, also including the vote of an international jury.
The final show will not only feature the final 6 contestants from the competition, but also Lithuanian music stars. Tickets for the final, which is being held in the Klaipėda Švyturys Arena, sold out immediately when they went on sale last week.
