The third show of the Lithuanian national selection was aired on January 23, and it featured 12 performances (five entries more than in previous shows). This time, the artists who applied without a song had a chance to compete.
Which means, all the contestants who have performed in the third round of the competition were matched with some of the songs Lithuanian public broadcaster received during the submission period.
The contestants performed their entries in the following order
*The results are based on jury votes (Lithuanian and international) and a public televoting (50/50).
Like in the previous shows, two acts which received the least support from the jury members and TV viewers were eliminated. However, this time, 12 performers were competing, instead of seven like in the previous two rounds. That's why there are ten qualifiers (instead of just five).
The national jury in the third show consisted of Ramūnas Zilnys, Darius Užkuraitis, Nomeda Kazlaus and Laima Lapkauskaitė. The international experts who shared their votes in tonight's show were: Vanessa Lancaster (British vocalist of jazz-pop ensemble Touch and go), Dave Holmes (British guitarist), Denis Ingoldsby (British producer) and Peter Freudenthaler, the lead singer of the German band Fools Garden.
