LITHUANIA: Donny triumphs as two more are eliminated

The Lithuanian selection continued to slide along at its glacial pace as tonight’s eighth show managed to eliminate a further two songs. The unfortunate twosome this week were Sauline Chlevickaite with her slightly overshowy Motown-flavoured plodder, and Milta Martinkenaite, whose folksy hoedown finally bit the dust.

Of the eight qualifiers, Eurovision veteran Donny Montell topped the pile again after a slow start with his song I’ve Been Waiting For This Night, while his regular opposition Aiste Pilvelyte nudged in behind him in second. Former Skamp Erica Jennings cut in a close third after leading the televote for much of the night, while regular winner from the songless performers, Ruta Sciogolevaite rode up in fourth.

Next week’s semi-final will see the remaining octet battle it out for the six places in the final, and tonight’s trailing twosome of the charming but awkard Valdas Lacko, and the ever more elaborately dressed Catrinah must surely be in the most trouble of falling at the final fence.

1 Donny Montell 24 points
