The third quarter-final in Lithuania's national Eurovision Song Contest on Saturday saw six more performances advance to the next stage.

In all, 36 performers were competing to represent Lithuania in the Eurovision Song Contest final in Rotterdam on May 12–16.

Half of them have been eliminated over three quarter-final events and the rest advanced to the next stage. The winner will be selected during Lithuania's national Eurovision finale on February 15.

On Saturday, the jury and televoters picked the final six semi-finalists.

The four girls of The Backs – Algė, Berta, Silvija and Eglė – represented Lithuania at Eurovision last year, as back singers to Jury Veklenko. This time, they're competing front and centre with the song Fully.

Vilnius Calling, by Rokas Povilius, is said to be inspired by the classical We Are the Winners, Lithuania's 2006 tongue-in-cheek Eurovision entry that won the country its highest ranking so far.
