Welcome to our second country-specific #AtoZ series. During the National Final season, we will look at a different country alphabetically each week. This week, we are looking at Lithuania and today we are looking at N-R…
Nomads In The Night
“Nomads in the Night” was performed by Jeronimas Milius at the 2008 Eurovision Song Contest, in Belgrade, Serbia. While Jeronimas failed to qualify for the Grand Final, he achieved a 16th place in the Semi Final, with 30 points.
Ovidijus Vyšniauskas was the first artist to represent Lithuania at the Eurovision Song Contest, when Dublin, Ireland, hosted in 1994. Ovidijus achieved Lithuania’s only last place in a Grand Final with “Lopšinė mylimai”, achieving the dreaded nul points.
Pabandom iš naujo!
Pabandom iš naujo! is the current national selection show in Lithuania and was introduced last year, with The Roop taking victory. The predecessor to Pabandom iš naujo! was Eurovizijos dainų konkurso nacionalinė atranka, which took place for seven consecutive years – between 2013 & 2019.
Queens Of Roses
Queens of Roses failed to make the Grand Final of Eurovizijos dainų konkurso nacionalinė atranka in 2017, after finishing last in the online repechage round, with their entry “Fisherman”.
Rokas Povilius participated in Pabandom iš naujo! and reached the second Semi Final. Rokas finished in sixth place out of a field of eight, with the song “Vilnius Calling”.
We will be back tomorrow with our #AtoZ of Lithuania in the Eurovision Song Contest, with letters S, T, U, and V.
