Who will follow The Roop in Lithuania? The national final "Pabandom iš Naujo" will have eight finalists including Ieva Zasimauskaitė from 2018
The national final in Lithuania is called “Pabandom iš Naujo”, which means let’s try again. Lithuania has never won the ESC, but a lot of people believed that The Roop could do it. Unfortunately, the Roop’s first song “On Fire” could not shine in Rotterdam 2020 as the entire ESC has been cancelled. Their second song one year later “Discoteque” could only reach the 8th place in Rotterdam. The big question is, can Lithuania provide another top act to Eurovision?
Lithuania is one of the countries at the ESC with the most extensive pre-selections, various rounds have to be taken until the Grand Final. This year we have eight finalists. The show will be hosted by Giedrius Maslakis, Ieva Stasiulevičiūtė & Richardas Jonaitis. Interesting to see that the former representative Ieva Zasimauskaitė is back again, she sang “When We're Old” Ieva Zasimauskaitė and made a 12th place in Lisbon. The drag queen Lolita Zero, who had several attempts in the Lithuanian final will also be among the finalists. There will be 50% jury and 50% televoting to determine the Lithuania entry.
