Lithuania’s Pabandom iš naujo! 2021 is hurtling towards its conclusion. It’s only week three and we’re already at the penultimate episode — the contest lasted for ten weeks as recently as 2017. And while local fans can catch the country’s Eurovision selection by switching their televisions to LRT, international viewers will need to try alternative means.
Here’s when and how you can watch the Pabandom iš naujo! 2021 semi-final.

Semi-Final — 30 January 2021
Time: 20:00 CET to 22:00 CET
The programme will be streamed live on LRT’s website. It will be available to watch worldwide.
Ten acts will compete in this semi-final. As with the heats, the end result will be determined by a 50/50 voting split between an expert jury and the public. It is expected that five entries will qualify to join automatic qualifiers The Roop in next week’s grand final.
The running order for the semi-final is:
- Be U “Love Yourself”
- Aistė Brokenleg “Home”
- Gabrielius Vagelis “My Guy”
- Voldemars Petersons “Never Fall For You Again”
- Norbertas “Man In Need”
- Evita Cololo “Be paslapčių”
- Titas & Benas “No”
- Martyna Jezepčikaitė “Thank You Very Much”
- Milita Daikerytė “Shadows”
- Gebrasy “Where’d You Wanna Go?”
The first two weeks saw 20 acts compete across two heats. Heat one saw five entries leave the competition, with another five getting the chop in the second heat. Show two also included a performance from last year’s winners The Roop. Due to the cancellation of Eurovision 2020, they’ve been given a direct pass to the final. The guest appearance was to ensure that the Lithuanian public would be familiar with “Discoteque” when the final rolls around.
