There are some slight changes in the national selection this year. In comparison to the last year where only singer has been chosen, LRT has announced the competition for both the performer and the author of the entry in the 2014 Eurovision Song Contest. It means that the singer who will be chosen to represent his or her Baltic country in Copenhagen can perform somebody else’s song. The authors, who will send in their songs, should agree with the conditions that their lyrics will be offered to the winner who might be not the performer they wrote their song for.
The rules for the selection are currently available in Lithuanian here.
LRT is awaiting the applications from the authors and talented singers till the 15th of November. The first round of the national selection is set from the 21st of December till the 18th of January. The national final will take place in the beginning of the February.
Last year, Andrius Pojavis performed his song Something for Lithuania in Malmö. He came ninth in the First Semi-Final. In the Grand Final, Andrius came 22nd.
