Day 8 of our 10 Days of Confirmations is here! Up next is the Lithuanian national broadcaster, LRT, who has confirmed to ESCToday that Lithuania will participate at the upcoming 2018 Eurovision Song Contest in Lisbon.

Lithuania will once again select its Eurovision entry and act via a national selection as has been the case in recent years.

Lithuania’s national selection, Eurovizija, has gradually grown in size over recent years. Who would you like to see participating in next year’s selection? Let us know in the poll below!

In 2017, Fusedemarc flew to Kyiv to defend the Lithuanian colours in Kyiv with their entry Rain of revolution. Despite an energetic performance, they failed to qualify to the Grand Final.

Lithuania in Eurovision

Lithuania debuted in Eurovision in 1994 and is yet to win the event.

The country achieved its best result in the competition in 2006 when LT United placed 6th in Athens. The Baltic nation has only made it twice on the Top 10 of the scoreboard (2006, 2012).

Eurovision 2018

The 2018 Eurovision Song Contest is scheduled to be held on 8, 10 and 12 in Lisbon, Portugal.

The deadline for broadcasters to officially apply for Eurovision 2018 concludes by mid September. Hereafter, countries have a grace period to confirm their participation or withdraw their application without a penalty.

The final list of the 2018 Eurovision participating countries is expected to be released by the EBU later during the year.
