Throughout Europe several shows took place tonight as Switzerland and Finland selected their Eurovision Song Contest 2014 entries. Hungary, Sweden, Lithuania, Latvia and Iceland concluded the night with their preliminary shows. Here are the results from the countries that held their national selection shows.
VILNIUS, LITHUANIA – Although ten TV shows were planned at the beginning, LRT decided to extend Eurovision euphoria in the country by adding two more episodes of the Eurovision marathon. In other words, until the 1st of March, we are going to enjoy more performances of the competing songs. Tonight, in the Show #8, all the finalists performed two songs. But only five of them have qualified for the next show.
This time contestants: Ieva Zasimauskaitė, Mia, Vaidas Baumila, Monika Linkytė, Martynas Kavaliauskas and Vilija Matačiūnaitė had to appear on stage twice, before their performances were evaluated by the Lithuanian and international jury (but by the TV audience across the country as well). Traditionally, LRT has changed the cast of Lithuanian panel again. Tonight, Vytenis Pauliukaitis, Sigutė Stonytė, Edmundas Seilius and Ramūnas Zilnys, were among the members of the jury.
