Donny Montell (Donatas Montvydas) is a Lithuanian singer and songwriter from Vilnius. He represented Lithuania at the 2012 Eurovision Song Contest in Azerbaijan. After being part of the Europe's favourite TV show, the Lithuanian pop artist promised himself to return to the contest one more time.

Montell (28) is a well-known artist in his homeland and successful participant of many TV-projects in Lithuania. He gained popularity after taking part in various prestigious festivals. In 2008, Montell won the Grand Prix prize at the Belorussian festival, Slavianskij Bazar.


Two years later, he scored another victory, winning the show Dance With Me. However, this was just the beginning, as he was taking part in many popular shows and contests together with a group of professional dancers.


Participating in the national selection was just a matter of time for Donny Montell. In 2012, he introduced himself to a much wider audience, by taking part in LRT's selections "Eurovizija" with the song Love Is Blind. Winning the national selection in Lithuania brought him to Baku, where he took part at the Eurovision Song Contest for the very first time.


Lyrics of I've Been Waiting for This Night

Here we are together you and I (I)
Watching lights around us fill the night (night)

I was living in the dark
Tried to heal my broken heart
Until now
Cause here we are together you and I (I)

For a thousand years through a million tears
With a hungry heart, every day apart
I’ve been waiting for this night, I've been waiting for this night

When I see your smile and your beautiful eyes
I get lost in time, now I know that I’ve
I’ve been waiting for this night, I’ve been waiting for this night

If only I could stay here by your side (side)
To promise you forever here tonight (night)

There is nothing I can do
That can take my heart from you
Always yours
If only I could stay here by your side (side)

For a thousand years through a million tears
With a hungry heart, every day apart
I’ve been waiting for this night, I’ve been waiting for this night

When I see your smile and your beautiful eyes
I get lost in time, now I know that I’ve
I’ve been waiting for this night, I’ve been waiting for this night

Aaaaaaaa aaaaaaaa aaaaaaaaa aaaaaaaaa

For a thousand years and a million tears
With a hungry heart, every day apart
I’ve been waiting for this night, I’ve been waiting for this night

When I see your smile and your beautiful eyes
I get lost in time, now I know that I’ve
I’ve been waiting for this night, I’ve been waiting for this night

Here we are together you and I
