At just four weeks, it will be the shortest Lithuanian national final since 2011. But we haven’t reached the end of Pabandom iš Naujo! 2021 just yet — there’s still the grand final to come!
The collective wisdom seems to be that it’s The Roop’s to lose. Last year’s winners have stormed the charts with “Discoteque” breaking Lithuanian records on both YouTube and Spotify. And while we saw the band perform during heat two, they have yet to be tested competitively this season. That’s because they were given the status of automatic qualifiers as consolation for the cancellation of Eurovision 2020.
However, there are five more acts who have spent the past three weeks winning over both the Lithuanian public and professional jury. And of this quintet, Gebrasy is arguably the biggest threat to The Roop juggernaut. He topped both his heat and the semi-final, securing maximum points from viewers at home as well as the music professionals.
The other finalists are Evita Cololo, Martyna Jezepčikaitė, Titas & Benas and Voldemars Petersons. You can listen to the six finalists below. Then vote for your favourites in our poll. You can vote for as many entries as you like, but you can only vote once. So, choose wisely! The poll will close ahead of the final on Saturday.
