LRT, the Lithuanian broadcaster, regrets that due to a software problem, the wrong results for the Lithuanian Yellow quarter final were announced Saturday night.

Jonas Vilimas, the coordinator of the Lithuanian national preselection, apologised for the mistake that confused artists and the public and assured everyone that by Monday 5th February, the matter will be resolved and the list of qualifiers will be confirmed.
Originally the following names were announced to have qualified to the semi finals:

Natas- The fall
Ingrida Paukstyte- Let's pray
Edita- Wherever I go
Edita and Erica- Something about love
Nerri- Breaking free
U-Soul- At your door
Mesa- Bad salad ballad

After the announcement at the end of the show, the votes were recounted and it came out that Natas, Ingrida Paukstyte and Edita had not qualified after all.
These are the new qualifiers according to LTR although it is clearly stated that full confirmation should be expected today:

Edita and Erica- Something about love
U-Soul – At your door
Mesa- Bad salad ballad
Ashtrey-The green sun
Stringaj – Just leave
Nerri – Breaking free
Zydre- It was good to be with you

A very special thanks to Arvydas Makselis.

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 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.
