We’re just one step away from finding out Lithuania’s Eurovision 2016 representative as we’ve reached the semi-final of Eurovizijos atranka 2016. Tonight’s 8 semi-finalists sang their entries and as usual, the Lithuanian juries made their decisions alongside the televoters. An international jury panel also had their say but unlike the previous elimination shows, they only gave their opinions on the semi-finalists and weren’t included towards tonight’s results.
Only six acts advanced to next week’s final and sadly, Catrinah and Valdas Lacko have fallen at the final hurdle with the two lowest combined scores. Erica Jennings came out on top of tonight’s semi-final and will be joined by Donny Montell, Ruta Šciogolevaite, Aiste Pilvelyte, Ieva Zasimauskaite and Ruslanas Kirilkinas. Congratulations!
