Donny Montell used his second rehearsal to screen test new jackets, and debuted new floor graphics to illuminate his “I’ve Been Waiting For This Night” video.

The Balkan Boy performed in three leather jackets, a hand-painted graffiti-style jacket, a purple asymmetrical jacket with black sleeves, and a white moto jacket.

Unlike Rykka who straightened her curly hair, Donny let his natural curls do their thing, with his curly fringe playfully falling across his eyes.

The staging also had new graphics and some epic overhead shots that took in the full scope of the stage. At one point as Donny dances, a trail of his footsteps appears on the floor, emphasising his smooth moves.

The trampoline leap is still there, with Donny putting his athletic form to good use, doing a somersault before launching into the song’s climax.

LOL @Eugene. quite ironic that you say this song is forgettable considering your favorites.

Loved Donny during his 2nd rehearsal, love him with the white jacket on, but the hair needs to GO. Seriously, his hair looks like the type of soup that you make when youre on the go. Keep it straight. No pun intended

Solid. But be sure to practice on that somersault.

Score based on jury criteria < 5/10

Really forgettable presentation apart from the trampoline summersault which he almost did not land. Song is also forgettable.

Ugh Donny just grates on me so much, the same in 2012. It’s probably mean to say it, but he has a very slappable face. This doesn’t deserve the final, but it will probably get there thanks to votes from Latvia, Belarus, Poland, Ireland and United Kingdom.
Lithuania needs to try harder at Eurovision to be as good as their Baltic neighbour Latvia of recent times.

This will be interesting to see Tuesday. All of his choreography is intended for the TV audience, so its hard to judge how good it is. This has the potential of having a music video quality that might just get him enough televote support to qualify. As it is, I think the juries will dig him to much of a hole to qualify. This will probably be the one we’ll see Tuesday and be shocked it didn’t qualify.

Firstly, he was called as a Latvian in OFFICIAL Eurovision magazine,now he is “Balkan Boy”,I think that people working with writting articles here in Eurovision must graduate from high-school at least , better from university, but they must know geography :///// Anyway, I really liked that, I guess that negative comments and dislikes on youtube come from people that are just jealous or don`t like Lithuania as a country :p

There are a couple of things I really loved about it. The finger clicks were cool and the trampoline was used well. This might be the best Baltic entry when it is all said and done!
