National selection season is OPEN! Tonight, Lithuania will begin it’s mammoth selection process – “Eurovizijos” Dainų Konkurso Nacionalinė Atranka!
Over the next 10 (yes, ten!) weeks, Lithuania will televise 8 shows, a semi-final and the grand final, which will coincide with Lithuania’s Independence Day on March 11th. At the end of this gruelling selection, the winner will walk away with the right to represent the largest of the Baltic republics at the Eurovision Song Contest in May.

So these are the songs who enter tonight with a competitive edge! Will the public agree?
