Day four of rehearsals and the Lithuanian entrants second chance to pefect their performance before next weeks semifinal rehearsals. The group appeared in full suits complete with props and alot of energy to an enthusiastic crowd gathered for the run throughs.

During this afternoons rehearsal, Lithuanian representatives LT United took to the stage to perform their song We are the winners. Now in full get up, the stage act remains unchanged with the "crazy" dance, megaphone and confetti all still part of the act.

During the following press conference LT United were asked if they had any plans to release an album and continue working together after the Eurovision Song Contest has finished, to which they replied that they have more suits than songs so it will probably just be the one song. But they did comment they were waiting for a member to leave before splitting so that in five years time a reunion tour could be arranged.

Other questions included a question about the songs message, and whether this will cause them to receive fewer votes. LT United said that votes are not what they came here for and that they are having a good time while in Athens. They did say, however, that they hope that their song can become an anthem for the Eurovision Song Contest.

Other topics discussed included the bands favourite entries from the other countries. Finland ranked high on LT United's list, however, they told the conference that they are not involving themselves in the competition in that way and they are just here to perform and enjoy the experience.

When asked if their partners were supportive of their Eurovision bid, the band laughed and simply said "No"
