In the Lithuanian national final “Pabandom iš naujo!” (Let’s try again!) the progressive group The Roop could win with the song “Discoteque”. Last year The Roop has won the national final already with “On Fire” but due to the cancellation of the ESC in Rotterdam, there has not been any contest, hence all entries did not count in the history. Nevertheless, some countries allow their participant to get another chance, like Lithuania. A lot of people predicted Lithuania to win.
Due to fairness The Roop has been directly put in the final. But it was clear from the first second that they will win again. Among five other contestants The Roop could win with the ten times more points than the runner up.
It’s another strong song, which will be different again, but typical for the choreography of the group. It all depends on the quality of the other international songs, if Lithuania has another top chance.
Great to see Vaidas Baumilla again (“This Time”, 18th place in Vienna 2015), he acted as the jury president.
