Lithuania: 36 acts for 'Pabandom iš Naujo' 🇱🇹

Broadcaster LRT has announced the 36 acts that will compete to represent Lithuania at the Eurovision Song Contest in Turin.

Pabandom iš Naujo (the Lithuanian national selection series) returns to screens on Saturday 8 January and is expected to run for 6 weeks until a winner is declared by a combination of public televote and professional jury.

The line-up features a selection of familiar faces and emerging artists, all hoping to replicate the success of The Roop who finished 8th in Rotterdam with the song Discoteque.

Chief Producer at LRT, Audrius Giržadas, says:

It is good to remember how Lithuanians unanimously supported the band The Roop in Rotterdam: the yellow wave swept across Europe! And again [in Pabandom iš Naujo], we have very different artists and songs, but they are united by the belief that it is this song that can represent our country.

This year, for the first time, LRT has provided financial support to all performers, which they can use to prepare [for performances], as the public broadcaster wants to give the rehearsal stage a chance to everyone who deserves it – whether it’s just starting their musical journey or is a well-known performer.
