Lithuania’s marathon Eurovizijos atranka 2016 selection process continues to trundle along, with tonight’s show marking its sixth week. The episode saw the eight qualifiers from show four battle it out for five places in the next round. Once again, all eyes were on Donny Montell and Ruta Šciogolevaite.
Just as it was in the previous round, the Lithuanian jury couldn’t separate the pair. So as before, both of them received the maximum 12 points. After all the votes from the international juries and televoters were counted and verified, it was Ruta Šciogolevaite who came out on top of tonight’s show.
