Tonight, in the tenth show of Eurovizijos 2014, the Lithuanian national selection process for the Eurovision Song Contest, Monika Linkyte was eliminated from the competition after receiving the lowest score once the jury and public vote were combined.
This means that Mia, Vaidas Baumila and Vilija Mataciunaite all progress to show eleven, which will take place next weekend.
In tonight’s show, the final four performed two of the remaining eight potential entries and Mia won the televote after her two performances, whilst Vaidas topped the jury vote.
During the week the results of the song vote will be announced and two more songs will be eliminated ahead of show eleven, where the final three will perform two of the six songs that will remain in the competition.

- 22 February – Show 11
- 01 March – Show 12 / Grand Final
- 15 March – Show 13 / Good Luck Concert
