Julija Ritčik, the lead singer of the 4Fun band that represented Lithuania in this year's Eurovision Song Contest, spoke to our correspondent Arvydas Makselis about her experience in Helsinki, her views on the outcome, the band's plans and much more.

Your Helsinki experience, how would you describe it? What kind of taste has it left you with?

My Helsinki experience is great and very interesting. We are talking about the Eurovision Song Contest, so I think it couldn’t be any other way! I realised how hard and precise the work of a Eurovision crew was. But I imagined Eurovision to be a bit different to that what I saw. The thing I didn’t like was that there were too many people, too many journalists, too many people in every country’s delegation, we had no chance to meet some other participants and to talk with them about simple things, not about just the contest. Every minute, every second was planed and we knew exactly what we had to do all week long. It was kind of tiring.

Thanks to Johnny Logan and Hold me now I fell in love with the Eurovision Song Contest, a love that's been going strong ever since with undiminished passion. My first memories date back to 1977 and the lyrics of Rock bottom, Dschinghis Khan and A ba ni bi are still engraved in my brain.

I joined esctoday.com in 2006 as a junior editor after being invited by Barry Viniker, I soon became Senior Editor and during the 2007 contest in Helsinki I was appointed Head of Communications. Today I hold the post of Head of Human Resources and I am proud to be working with the best editorial team in the world.
