After Gytis Ivanauskas smashed his way to the top of last week’s show with watermelons and drag, Lithuania’s Eurovizijos atranka 2017 continued with the remaining 12 qualifiers from the first four heats. Tonight’s lineup included 2009 Eurovision representative Sasha Song and the three heat winners of Mia, Greta Zazza and Aiste Pilvelyte.
Aiste Pilvelyte went on to win tonight’s show and another seven acts reached the next stage of the competition: Greta Zazza, Kotryna Juodzeviciute, Queens of Roses, Sasha Song, Mia, Valerija Iljinaite and Alanas Chošnau.
Sadly, we had to say goodbye to Vidas Bareikis & Ieva Zasimauskaite, Neringa Šiaudikyte, Evaldas Vaikasas and Golden Monkeys. Eurovision is a cruel sport, but now they can rest up for next year’s outing.
Ahead of tonight’s show, the Wiwi Jury — our in-house panel of music unprofessionals — had plenty to say about Aiste. With Aminata Savadogo behind her song, “I’m Like A Wolf”, it’s looking like a winning combination. Wiwiblogger Antranig said:
While I don’t think this would win Eurovision, it should have little difficulty keeping Lithuania in the Top 10. The Aminata influence is obvious but Aiste is allowed to show off her powerful vocals and she’s a cut above the competition. This wolf has got teeth and she’s coming for blood.
Aiste took top votes from both the jury and televote this week. Is she well on her way to overall victory in the selection?
