The final of Lithuania’s Eurovizijos atranka 2018 is almost upon us, but we start with this weekend’s first of two live semi-finals. And after being eliminated from the quarter-final, Greta Zazza and Ruta Loop were given a second chance earlier this week as the two wildcard winners.

Sadly, it was a short-lived return for Greta Zazza as she agonisingly missed out on a place in the final as one of tonight’s seven acts from the first semi-final. Jurgis Bruzga confirmed his place as tonight’s winner and will be joined by The Roop and Kotryna Juodzeviciute.

Ahead of tonight’s show, the Wiwi Jury — our in-house panel of music unprofessionals — had plenty to say about Jurgis. Wiwiblogger Lukas said:

This song and the entire performance are very similar to last year’s effort from Robin Bengtsson. Still, this is a strong entry and maybe the best from all of Jurgis’ attempts. “4love” has a catchy chorus and builds quite well. Maybe there is a bit too much electronic sounds because it gets a little annoying to listen to. But overall this did stand out and is a strong entry this year.

First semi-final running order

Gabrielius Vagelis – “The Distant”

GeraiGerai & Silvija Pankunaite – “More Than You Know”

Kotryna Juodzeviciute – “That Girl”

The Roop – “Yes, I Do”

Godo – “Fire Fountain”

Greta Zazza – “Broken Shadows”

Jurgis Bruzga – “4Love”

Wtf is this? Kotryna is supposed to be first. Smh Lithuania has a chance to take such a good place in the Eurovision with Kotryna, but they vote for Robin Bengtsson wannabe Jurgis.

Gabrielius! 🙁
Jurgis’ song is so mediocre. Do not send him.

Now we’ve got Hungary and Ukraine! Danielfy is singing for Hungary (good song, would’ve preferred AWS or Tamas but he’s a good pick) and Mélovin is singing for Ukraine (haven’t heard that one yet).
