43 acts in the running for Lithuania

There were 70 songs originally submitted to LRT for consideration in the 2011 selection. These 70 then became 43 as a special jury commissioned by LRT decided which songs would advance to the semi final stage.

There will be a total of three semi finals which will be held on February 5th, 12th and 19th respectively. These shows will be pre recorded. Three songs from each semi final will directly qualify to the final. The voting in the semi finals will be a split of televoting and juries. Broadcaster LRT will then select five wildcard finalists, and website zebra.lt will also select a wildcard finalist. That will give a grand total of 15 competing songs in the final. The final will be aired in late February although LRT has yet to officially confirm the exact date.

A familiar name to return to the Lithuanian selection process is Sasha Song, who represented Lithuania in Europe's Favourite TV Show in Moscow in 2009 reaching 23rd place in the Final with the song Love.

Lithuania's biggest success to date was in 2006 in Athens when LT United reached 6th place in the Final with We Are The Winners.
