Before the results were announced, the two guys who fooled LRT by submitting Michael Jackson's Ben were 'honoured' and awarded a caricature of Michael Jackson. The Lithuanian selections however remain a contest organised week by week. After the disqualification of the Michael Jackson cover and three more participants withdrew, the group No Hero, supposed to sing the song Veins, withdrew his week.
Taja, one of the participants of the second semifinal who was offered a second chance in the last semifinal since her performance was disturbed by technical problems, refused LRT's offer.
