It’s all over! Lithuania have chosen a winner – or should that be winners! Monika and Vaidas have won Eurovizijos atranka 2015 and the Lithuanian Eurovision ticket. The duo reprised their duet of “This Time” and entered the final together to take on Mia. They will go on to sing “This Time” in Vienna after the song which was chosen during last week’s show. The song is composed by Vytautas Bikus and Monika Liubinaite.
The two finalists were assessed and evaluated by two juries. A Lithuanian panel made up of made up of Ramunas Zilnys (music reviewer) and Rosita Civilyte (singer), and an international one consisting of Latvia’s Ralf Eilands, Luxumbourg’s Eric Leman and René Romkes from the Netherlands.
The jury points were then combined with the televotes. You can see the full breakdown below.
RESULTS OF EUROVIZIJOS ATRANKA 2015
Our 2015 selection journey may have finally come to an end, but Lithuanian broadcaster LRT still has two more Eurovizijos atranka episodes for y’all to enjoy. Next week’s ninth show takes a trip down memory lane with The Best of the National Selection highlights special (available on the LRT website). Then on 7 March, The Winning Performer’s Support Concert programme featuring all of this year’s Eurovizijos atranka participants will take place in Vilnius, dedicated to the 2015 entry.
What are your thoughts on LRT’s decision to send Monika and Vaidas as a pair? Do you think that they’ll do better together, or would you rather have seen a solo act win Eurovizijos atranka 2015? Let us know in the comments!
