This is the last busy weekend packed with national finals. Sweden, Norway, Iceland and Lithuania are going to air their final shows. From our experiences, these highly expected shows are always worth to watch, a lot of entertainment, special stars and a great excitement. While the Norwegian final only had one show this year, Iceland had three shows, Sweden six show and Lithuania ten shows, this is an absolute marathon.
All finals will take place on Saturday and there will be live streams as usual.
The Grand Final from the Friends Arena close to Stockholm will start at 20.00 CET and can be watched here
As a special guest Zara Larsson will be there, who is internationally known as she sang for the opening at the Soccer Championship in France last year.
Since one the big favourites Loreen has not made it into the final its getting really exciting, who is going to be the Swedishrepresentative in Kiev:
Ace Wilder – ”Wild Child”
Boris René – ”Her Kiss”

There will be seven finalists, one of them received the wild card and this is Hildur with “Bammbaramm”, which has been determined by the broadcaster RÚV itself. We will also see Måns Zelmerlöw performing in the interval act.

This is the tenth live show in the Lithuanian selection process called Eurovizijos dainų konkurso nacionalinė atranka. The show will start at 20.00 CET. There will be a live stream of LRT here
It all looks like we are going to have a real surprise coming from Lithuania this year as Gytis Ivanauskas seems to be the dark horse in the final with the very extraordinary entry Gytis made the first place in the online repechage. Having a dramatic drag entry from Lithuania would be very unusual for this more conservative country.
These are the seven finalists:
Paula - "Let U Go"
Aistė Pilvelytė - "I'm Like a Wolf"
Kotryna Juodzevičiūtė - "Love Shadow"
Fusedmarc - "Rain of Revolution"
Gabrielius Vagelis - "Feel Myself Free"
Greta Zazza - "Like I Love You"
Gytis Ivanauskas - "Get Frighten"
