Donny Montell, whose original name is Donatas Montvydas was born in Vilinus in 1987. At an early age Donny attended a music school, and joined several choirs and dance groups. Beside of his interest in music he attended a school which was specialized in basketball. Donny studied environmental sciences at the University of Vilnius. One of the highlights of Donny’s life was the participation at the ESC 2012 in Baku. At that time he promised himself to come back to the ESC for a second time. Michael Jackson and Queen have been Donny’s idols and he is now having a wife and a little daughter.
The song “I’ve Been Waiting For This Night” has been composed by Jonas Thander from Sweden, who has already been composing ESC entries for Magnus Carlsson, Pastora Soler and this year’s Russian performer Sergey Lazarev. The video clip has been filmed in Stockholm showing Donny looking for love, but falling into love for only one night. The song is about love for sure. The sound is very modern and has a Swedish rhythm, even though it’s a strong song for Lithuania. Donny is dancing and singing to the fullest and he deserves a place in the Grand Final. Good Luck!

About me: Due to the fact that my parents are musicians, I have a gained a great enthusiasm for music. Since 1979 my interest in the Eurovision Song Contest has grown enormously. My first ESC I joined was in Dublin 1995. Six years later I founded the website eurovisionlive.com in the year 2001. The most fascinating part for me is the original idea of the Eurovision Song Contest – the peaceful contest of the European countries. I am very happy that I have the chance to contribute my little part for the greatest music show in the world.
