The seventh installment of Eurovizijos 2014—the never-ending trainwreck that is Lithuania’s national selection—will take place this evening at 20:00 CET. You can watch it live on the LRT web site. If you dare…
Last week Justinas Lapatinskas crashed out of the contest wearing a tangerine colored suit. A few days later LRT announced that it would delay the grand finale because of high ratings. According to producer Laura Paukste more than 150,000 people have watched the show, which is about 5.2 per cent of everyone older than 4 years old in the country. Apparently everyone loves a good circus!
As for now, check out contestant Monika Linkyte covering Zlata Ognevich’s “Gravity” on show #3.
