Four weeks into Lithuania’s 10-week-long Eurovision selection extravaganza, 20 songs already eliminated and tonight we will see eleven more songs performed.
How to watch
The first show kicks off from 20:00 CET (21:00 local time) via the following channels:
- LRT Televizija
- LRT Lituanica
- Live webcast via lrt.lt
As with the previous shows, presenters Ieva Stasiulevičiūte and Gabriele Martirosianaite will host the proceedings. We will see the next 11 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 music reviewer Ramūnas Zilnys, head of LRT Opus Darius Užkuraitis, singer P. Meškėla and chief conductor of the Lithuanian State Symphony Orchestra Gintaras Rinkevičius. 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.
