Wiwi Jury: Eurovizijos Atranka 2018 reviews and rankings

4

Twenty-four acts will qualify from the heats of Eurovizijos dainu konkurso nacionaline atranka, the Lithuanian national selection for Eurovision 2018. But at the end of the marathon national selection process, only one can grab the golden ticket to Lisbon. To help you make an informed decision on who to pay attention to, the Wiwi Jury – our in-house panel of music unprofessionals – will review and rank each of this year’s qualifying acts. We’re ready to pick our favourite for Lithuania!

Our jury for this edition consists of 13 jurors who come from Australia, Hungary, Lithuania, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Portugal, Spain and the United Kingdom. Each juror assesses each song independently, and awards each song a score from 0 to 10. Before calculating the Wiwi Jury verdict, we drop the highest and lowest scores to reduce potential bias and outliers.

We’ll be unrolling these one by one over the coming weeks. You can read the completed reviews by clicking on the song title.
