Wiwi: It’s back to black during the Eurovision rehearsals this year, as Lithuania’s Andrius Pojavis paired a leather jacket with black denim jeans, following a trend we’ve seen from Slovenia, the Netherlands and Ireland already. Father-of-two Andrius previously told us that he’d be wearing the heinous Jack the Ripper top hat from the Lithuanian national selection, but luckily he left that at home. The vocals remain more talky than singy—but strangely that gives this number appeal. There’s just something about “Something”.

Deban: There’s something really gripping about the simplicity of Andrius’ act. Many readers have said that we overated this entry in our jury ranking. I really hope they’re wrong. Although, this is a pop number, the first signs of the staging show that things will be kept simple. No gimmicks, no bowler hats, and no silly dance steps. This mix of love and pain is a mature offering from Lithuania, and it ought to make the final.
