VILNIUS, LITHUANIA – The third show for LRT’s national selection took place tonight. The magnificent studio set and the well produced show took place tonight at 20.00 CET through LRT. 10 acts participated tonight in the second heat round. Through SMS voting and jury voting the participants bid for a spot in the final.
This week again the participants performed past Eurovision entries like Moltiva (Serbia 2007) making the show interesting as the aim of this heats is to present the skills of the artists based on already successful Eurovision entries. Espeicially,Monika Linkytė performed Ukrainian entry of 2013, Gravity. Interesting and very good performance although nothing like Zlata Ognevich.
The magnificent studio of LRT and the warm audience welcomed the participants who immediately after their performance judged by the jury on stage and got remarks and points for their performance. The live SMS voting, I have to admit is a feature I simply love. The show which lasts over 2 hours though is somehow too big for this round at least. The recaps of the songs keep going but finally we have the results and the qualifiers for the semifinals.
