Have y’all checked the sky for flying pigs lately? Because Lithuania’s hunt for a Eurovision 2016 representative almost seems like a regular national selection. For once we know what artists will sing what songs and said songs aren’t being swapped back and forth as in previous years. Note we said almost. That’s because LRT are still a law unto themselves when it comes to scheduling.
They’ve only gone and combined the third and fourth heat into one final heat, which will be broadcast on Saturday 23 January. This means that the first quarterfinal may or may not take place the following week (it was originally scheduled for 6 February). However, after heats one and two, we do know the ten acts which will compete in quarterfinal one (unless LRT decide to do even more tinkering!). The line-up includes past Eurovision stars Donny Montell and Erica Jennings. Only eight will progress to the semifinal. Who deserves to make it?
You can watch all ten performances below. Then vote in our poll. You can vote for as many contestants as you like, but you can only vote ONE time. Be sure to check the box next to every act you want to support before submitting your votes. Voting ends just before the first quarterfinal (we’re waiting for LRT to confirm the exact date).
