The first show kicks off from 20:00 CET (21:00 local time) via the following channels:

Tonight’s show

As with the previous two shows, presenters Ieva Stasiulevičiūte and Gabriele Martirosianaite will host the proceedings. We will see the next 13 of the 51 participants 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 singer and musicologist Darius Užkuraitis, music commentator Ramūnas Zilnys, singer Justė Arlauskaitė-Jazzu and opera soloist Sigutė Stonytė. Both the jury and televoting points will be ranked in the traditional Eurovision style.

The top ranked acts which receive the highest amount of points will qualify to the next stage of the show, which starts from the 4 February.

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.
