36 songs to compete for Lithuanian Eurovision ticket 2020.01.03 17:30

Thirty-six performers and bands have been selected to compete in Lithuania's national selection for the Eurovision Song Contest.

“We will hear truly many interesting, talented performers and we're all up to a grave task, to pick the one song that will be performed on the Eurovision grand stage,” says LRT chief producer Audrius Giržadas.

The winning Lithuanian song will be selected in the course of six weekly broadcasts starting on January 11, and will compete in the finals on May 12-16 in Rotterdam, the Netherlands.

The first three broadcasts will introduce 12 performances each, only six of which will advance to the next stage. The winning song will be selected from eight finalists by a combined score from a jury and the televote on February 15.

The five-member jury will vary from week to week and the members have not been disclosed yet.

Over 60 songs have been submitted for consideration and over half of them have been selected for the national competition. Only new songs that had not been publicly performed before September 2019 are eligible for Eurovision.

Lithuania debuted at the Eurovision Song Contest in 1994. In 2006, ‘We Are The Winners’ by the band LT United finished sixth, Lithuania's highest achievement so far.
