Previously, it was planned that a solo entry would be the Lithuanian choice, but as fate would have it, Monika Linkytė and Vaidas Baumila persuaded both TV viewers and the professional jury, with their fresh, and beaming with joy performance. In Vienna, the duet will sing This Time.
Vaidas Baumila is one of the best-known singers of the young generation in Lithuania. After a period of singing on the cruise ship Queen Elizabeth, he has been a part of prestigious plays and various TV projects.
Back in 2006, the singer released his debut album What Do You Like? to great popularity. His second album Listen to Me was released in 2008 and gave him the award of Best Singer in Lithuania. The singer is currently working on his third album, which is to be released in March 2015.
When Monika was a little girl she used to dream of being a dancer. However, as soon as she had started to play the piano, Monika understood that music is more important than anything else.
“I am sure that the biggest achievement of a person is finding himself. I say that from my own experience.” – claims Monika. She has participated in a number of musical contests, festivals and TV projects and has taken part in the Lithuanian selection for the Eurovision Song Contest since 2009.
