After blaring the same songs week after week, disqualifying a contestant, and actually postponing tonight’s show by a day, Lithuania has finally selected their entry for the Eurovision Song Contest 2014. The song final was held between three songs, and were performed by the three remaining artists Vaidas Baumila, Mia and Vilija Mataciunaite. Each presented their own unique version of each song, meaning that Lithuanians had to sit through nine performances (of varying quality). #exhausting.The result was determined by combining points from the Lithuanian and international juries, and votes from the Lithuanian public.

“Attention,” written by Viktoras Vaupšas and Vilija Mataciunaite, came out on top.

The artist, who will represent Lithuania with “Attention” will get chosen next Saturday, 1st March.

Eurovizijos results:

Jury points:

Televote:

1. Attention – 2,732

2. Take A Look At Me Now – 2,484

3. It’s All About A Boy – 205

This result was similar to a poll we conducted in recent days, which found “Attention” and “Take a Look at Me Now” neck-and-neck, with “It’s All About a Boy” way back in last place.

1. Take A Look At Me Now 79 votes, 40.31%

2. Attention 73 votes, 37.24%

3. It’s All About A Boy 44 votes, 22.45%

Was terrible when Monika was eliminated ;[ But I wasn’t impressed either on the show when she was eliminated. Hope it’s either Vaidas or Vilija!

I prefer Vaidas version, but it would be a great task on the big stage of ESC. I do not really believe that there is still sth to decide. The version of Vilija sounds like canned studio version.

If Vilija wrote (or co-wrote) this, she should be the one to sing it in Copenhagen.

Monika’s attention sounds best to me.

If “Attention” belongs to Mia, she’ll have to do a music video 😀

This is Vilija’s one to win and Vaidas’ one to lose. He sings it well, but the acoustic arrangement and the overall style doesn’t fit the song. Mia’s approach is a tad cheap and she’s not as good as the other two, but it does fit her better than Vaidas.

I vote Vilija (even though she now has 100% chance to go to Copenhagen. She’ll get credit whoever wins)

I don’t think this was fair. Attention is written and composed partly by Vilija. Now she has a certain victory.

Next time, Lithuania, just pair up the songs and artists before the competition.

Monika was by far the best singer, but she was sadly eliminated. Vaidas and Mia do the best versions of the song, but I think I prefer Mia. Since Vilija wrote the song I’m not rooting for her since she’ll be able to go to Copenhagen anyways as a songwriter.

Lithuania get lucky with juries in past years in semi final and thank to their votes they go to final.

This is the most confusing national final I’ve ever seen. Monika’s version sounds like a trainwreck.

Don’t like their pick…..
Well, Lithuania can climb a little bit on my top if Mia is selected, but nothing else…

Vilja’s Attention. Thank you. Feel free to say no, Lithuania, you’re accustomed to do that.
