The final is looming on the horizon in Lithuania, with Saturday evenings last knockout episode of Eurovizijos atranka 2017. The remaining eight qualifiers returned to sing their entries, including 2014 and 2015 finalist Mia.
Only four acts could join Aiste Pilvelyte, Sasha Song, Greta Zazza and Ieva Zasimauskaite at next week’s semi-final on 4 March. Fusedmarc confirmed their place as tonight’s winner, and will be joined by Gabrielius Vagelis, Paula and Kotryna Juodzeviciute.
Ahead of tonight’s show, the Wiwi Jury — our in-house panel of music unprofessionals — had plenty to say about Fusedmarc. Wiwiblogger Antranig said:
The first few notes of “Rain of Revolution” are interesting and the composition delivers throughout three minutes. The vocals aren’t bad but they feel completely out of place. It’s almost like she’s singing a different song that doesn’t mesh well with the music. Having said that, the final product is still interesting enough to consider. A lot of flaws but it’s not awful.
