A couple of weeks ago the Lithuanian national selection kicked off with a show to introduce the artists to the audience. There was a second show last Saturday as well, but in these two shows the potential 2013 entries were not revealed, instead the performers sang a piece of their choice.
This Saturday the first eight participant songs will be performed in the first qualificaition round. This is the rundown of the show:
- Vudis & Samanta Tina - Hey Chaki – Mama
- Vincentas Linkevičius - Dance The Night
- Gabrielius Vagelis - Sacrifise
- Uhnè Smile - Call To You Mum
- Saulès Broliai - Loreen
- Valerija Iljinaitė - Kate‘s Morning At 10:08
- Andrius Pojavis - Something
- Julija Jegorova - I‘ll Carry You
The voting as usual will be 50% jury and 50% televoting. This is the first of five qualification rounds. Three of the songs will proceed to the Semi-finals on the 8th and the 15th of December. There will be seventeen to twenty songs in those Semi-finals of which around ten will qualify for the grand final on Saturday the 22nd of December 2012.
You can follow the show live on Saturday from 20:00 CET on the Lithuanian broadcaster, LRT, site.
