If Donny Montell ever comes back, my only wish is that he doesn't sing another Swedish import. Lithuania can do better than resorting to foreign composers imo.

Donny will probably come back to Eurovision 2018 together with one of the most popular Lithuanian artists SEL with Lithuanian song (maybe they will have Englsh version, I dunno). Here you can here a bit of the song :

I just find it strange that a country like ::lt that isn't that small compared to others keeps sending the same artist. Anyway, he's a good performer and if he sends something good they can reach a good position

I just find it strange that a country like ::lt that isn't that small compared to others keeps sending the same artist.

The thing is that majority of our most popular acts aren't really high about participation in ESC. Some says it's not their cup of tea, some doesn't really like the procedure of NF, some might be just afraid of failure, which happened most of the times for us and then people/media are really harsh, so they just doesn't take a risk. The same Fusedmarc were kind no names before winning NF this year, but since failure I didn't hear a thing from them. So usually in NF we see same old names year by year, lot of amateurish acts. No wonder everytime Donny participates he is a favorite to win it all. The same would be for upcoming NF, if he will decide to participate, cause again, today some names were announced and it's pretty much the same like every given year... so :)

SEL stated that they won't participate. But he says lot of crap, so you can never know for sure. One way or another, this song way below the standarts what these two could've done. Dissapointing song with lame lyrics, doubt it could've done well in ESC

Is Lukas supposed to look like a goofy weirdo Salvador? He looks like a reggae crazy hobo :?


My fave:

Yulia Tymoshenko with radiculitis Godo - at least it was interesting to watch. I liked her vocals in the end. Weaknesses: the song sucks overall, her movements in the beginning were horrendous, the staging was too dark.


Not impressed by Ieva at all.

Thanks to BernadetteCydonia's wonderful video, I was able to experience the succulent "Blood Roses". Such a sultry song and performance. I actually really like Meda's low, breathy vocals, and the last 20 seconds of the song, iconic. Meda Meškauskaitė for the win!

Oh my gosh! That "3 2 1" performance is a 3 minute lesson in how to own a stage. She absolutely slayed itxheat And she sounded competent (great actually) whilst moving around like crazy. She's got absolutely nothing she needs to work on. Everything was near enough perfect. The song is really catchy as well. I've got a feeling this song could be a ticket for Lithuania to do incredibly well at the contest this year. I'm very impressed.

"Man Gaila" is also a fine song. I like it's vibe very much. Such a sultry performance. I think as a piece of music I like this a bit more than "3 2 1" (as it's more my thing) but then Paula's song is something I think that's hard to overlook. It leaves such a strong first impression.

Haven't followed things too closely here, but from the videos I've seen linked, 1 2 3 and Fire Fountain would both be interesting choices out of what we've seen so far. 1 2 3 is a catchy, easy-to-like song with an active, confident performance; it could really come alive at Eurovision and give a great result with some backing dancers, a nice backdrop, decent camera angles etc.

Meanwhile, Fire Fountain isn't as immediately catchy, but paired with the weird choreography, it could absolutely stand out at Eurovision if things are tightened up.

Of the two, Paula and 1 2 3 feel like they might have a decent chance at making it there, given that she's had the highest televote total of either semi so far. Though there's still a long (long, long) way to go until we get a final result, of course.

Haven't listened to everything yet, but gosh, I am just so in love with this one but it didn't make it:cry:


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rwR-kQkbavg

A lesson in how to serve a minimal electronic track. Damn, that staging is so super cool and I love the song. Becomes such an eargasm towards the end. That groove is unreal. I'm really digging how sensual and mysterious it is. I guess this was just swaying too much in an avant-garde direction to pick up the support needed, which is a shame as Lithuania are known for their bold choices. I would have killed to have had this at Eurovision (could have been my number 1). Oh well, thank for showcasing this little treasure still Lithuania. I've got a feeling i'll be listening to it a lot.

RainyWoods
29th January 2018, 06:05
I think this is legit the best NF of the year. I'm struggling to find even one song in most of the others I give half a damn about, but with Lithuania there's been so many songs so far that have caught my attention. A bunch of peculiar songs with really great production and staging. I just finished listening to all of them from the third week and three advanced that I especially like.


GeraiGerai ir Silvija Pankūnaitė - More than you know AaaaaMAZING! I was upset about "Breathe" missing out in this heat, but "More than you know" more than makes up for itxheat One of the strangest songs i've heard in an NF for a long time. It takes the rules and throws them out of the window. Best part is absolutely that bit towards the end where they threaten to go for an electronic freakout Young Georgian Lolitaz style and then SURPRISE it ain't happening cause it's suddenly completely changed it's melody and is serving the most poptacular finale you never saw coming. The staging is awesome too. The whole thing is perfect. Please send this to Eurovision and win the Barbara Dex award along with my heart.

Gabrielius Vagelis - The Distant This is one of those weird "should I really be liking this?" songs that comes along now and then. I'm afraid I can't quite resist it, try as I may. The pink suit with black turtle neck jumper and Leon Kennedy from Resident Evil hair only make it harder to ignore. I like how he sings the chorus. It's almost as though he's tumbling down a hill. Incredibly warbly diva vocals, and it's a bit raw but I like the overall weird package of this one. Even if the song itself is kind of standard, I think Gabrielius is making me like it.

Vidas Bareikis - Pusvalanduko This is the most Lithuanian thing I think i've ever seen. The performance is absolutely wondrous. If i'm honest, I wish the song itself was just a smidgen better. It has however managed to grow on me from when I first heard it a while back. The whole thing is super dooper fun and zany in the most charming way. It would be delightful to experience at Eurovision.


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Pv3hCfnmq8

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DKF1DSTfBbU <- That outfit FTW



"Melody" is also bless. It sounds like it stepped out of a time machine but got a bit warped on it's journey to us. It's very surreal how it exists today and it even won the public vote. Super bizarre..... I think I like it? Unsure.

This NF is the best thing this Eurovision season. I can't stop listening to these tunes. There are more songs here I enjoy than all the other national finals this year put together. Of the songs going into the next round i'm interested in...

Love
GeraiGerai & Silvija Pankūnaitė - More Than You Know
Paula - 1 2 3
Kotryna Juodzevičiūtė - That Girl
slight gap
Gabrielius Vagelis - The Distant
Saulės kliošas - Man gaila
The Roop - Yes, I Do
Enjoy
Vidas Bareikis - Pusvalanduko
Živilė Gedvilaitė - Melody
Marija - This Love
Lukas Norkūnas - Tegu
Elizabeth Olshey - Bejausmis


And that's not even counting the flops I love like "Blood Roses" and Joyce's "Breathe" (still my ultimate favourite). Too many hot songs. My only fear is that I dislike three of the four heat winners. Going back to last year though and I see that Fusedmarc didn't set their first heat on fire, so I guess a lot can change. I rather selfishly want Lithuania to pick GeraiGerai which is a huge ask and risk, especially as you went crazy with your song only last year, but I just can't stop thinking about "More Than You Know". They've accomplished the feat of creating a song without a typical pop structure (a song of three distinct parts) and yet the whole thing is so devilishly catchy and memorable. I can't get it out of my head. Such an electropop treat. Give meeeee.

so about the qualifiers.

Ieva - predictable :D Let's see for how long her being 12d by the jury lasts though. Her significance faded out in the semifinal last year when she got only 3 as opposed to Fusedmarc's 12 (to which jury gave 10 for the first 2 of their shows). Still not convinced people won't get bored by her song in Lisbon though.
Monika Marija - slay you vocalist from Žemaitija :D I hope you can insert a verse in Samogitian so that we can be treated to at least that after 19 years since our first Samogitian entry xcheer
Saulės Kliošas - still not convinced they could stand out in Eurovision apart from the language... but good for them ;)
The Roop - Y A S S S S S S S S S S! xyaay I stand with lavieenrose by stanning this entry! The chorus is stuck in my head and was for the whole Saturday and still is xD I would only kind of fix the lyricism because the chorus is kinda off (only for the rhyming purposes though I see) and strenghten the song out but other than that it's so fine xlove Slay Milanno (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MKWcUHSlO_M) for beating your depression, we need more people like you in the world. http://www.escforum.net/img/Smileys/ISC_Flags/clap.gif
Marija - yass simcard kwen slay me darling http://www.escforum.net/img/Smileys/ISC_Flags/clap.gif She should make her vocals sound stellar on the semifinal in order to give the gift back to her massive televoters squad because simcards won't gift you with magical voice instantly. As well as if she's getting 0 next week and she's between qualification with only 10/12 points from televoters, the jury votes will cancel her out as they are the ones that break ties afterall :(
Gabrielius Vagelis - I liked that he improved from last year imo. Stylewise - yeah well no but songwise - I like it! :D

Poor Greta, I lol'd how Audrius got cancelled out of qualification Natalja Chareckaja style, predictable for Ruta Loop and buh-bye Živilė and Elizabeth/Elžbieta xwave

I paradoxically like it more because of his clear discomfort with the language. It really feels like him honestly expressing what he feels in the slightly broken way he knows how.

While I have your attention, are there things we're missing in trying to guess how this NF will end by not being in Lithuania? Are there famous artists in it? Controversies? Artists who're well-liked in a particular geographical area? Perhaps most paramount, what type of person actually watches the Lithuanian NF - does the audience skew young/old?

BernadetteCydonia
19th February 2018, 02:37
Hmmm how do I break it down to ya...

There's a semi happening this week (my time it's a few mins away to half past 4 of a new day), and for sure there are the 3 winners that qualified from 2nd round of heats to the final + Jurgis + Monika Marija. Marija cannot have the 6th spot for that long tho.

However, Lukas Šniolis (the guy who keeps us updating on televotes and announces running order of each show and announces full results of each heats n such) said during the end of heat 6 that we will be having an announcement coming on Labas Rytas Lietuva (LRT's morning show) and this could make or break everything. Last year we had such announcement, we had an online voting to bring back a song that was eliminated later on the shows straight to the final. This year... what's it gonna be? A second chance show held next Saturday? Someone getting disqualified for overabusing simcards? Old news about the venue of the NF? Past participant ending up in the jury? Voting errors? Erica Jennings eventually returning to sing her own NF entry? So many possibilities :confused: You better be doing something right for the NF this time, Mr. Giržadas.

If however a randomer qualifies to the final (or in a similar level as Fusedmarc) and wins, expect petitions in a couple of days, signed by a lot of celsbrities that is just one guy pretending to be many :D

Yes there are famous faces and controversies, such as Erica Jennings withdrawing due to juries' pettiness in critiquing others, but she happily gave het song up for grabs and that's how we got Monika Marija. Mia tried her hand at calling out the selection for the way it works, flopped to qualify and vowed to never return to the selection again. There were technical difficulties in the making of NF performances as well so some performances had to be restarted. International fandom occured to past NF faces like Paula and Greta mainly. And some girl named Milda had fans in Chile too :D

As for demographic, I'm not sure yet. xD

"More Than You Know" music video has just been released.


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gc7SG9jMsC4

I'm infatuated so hard with this song. That studio version somehow even gave me goosebumps at the end. Absolute eargasm. I'd love you forever and ever if you made this your Eurovision entry this year Lithuania. I can't stop listening to it and the thing has pretty much been in my head all day long for weeks now. It's the most interesting and rewarding song from any selection. And It's official now... my favourite song of Eurovision 2018's NF season: More Than You Know. I hope the public support continues to grow and the jury realize what they've got here exactly. Absolutely wondrous song. I need to check out GeraiGerai's other music if he's capable of producing something like this, and Silvija too as her voice is awesome!

So many songs I love and they're all still in the running, but how are they going to win when they're getting 600-800 votes and there have been songs going over 2000? :cry: The Roop I do like though and would accept as a consolation prize if none of my big favourites can win.

But jury can kill everybody....

This one got the highest number of votes and 0 from jury in the heats, it is in semi, but jury will kill it:

7 Marija "This Love" televoting 2722 = 12 + jury 0 = 12

BernadetteCydonia
21st February 2018, 13:33
It all depends on how and where the songs will be drawn. But I can bet that in both semis Ruta Loop would end her NF journey regardless. And with no jury votes revealed only after the televote period, it will be harder to guess who has accumulated the most simcards for the week, as Marija's fans were likely devastated by the jury zero so they upvoted her hella high so she could at least qualify. But with the capacity of 7 in her semi and the capabilities of jury... oh boy would that be a fuckfest. We once had an act in 2013 who got totally polar opposite opinions from jury and televoters in their heat (3 vs. 12) who only ended 4th - not too far from qualification but a proof that the jury still can screw things for their own way so much so that the fans would not be able to do anything to get her through.

I have a couple of questions for our Lithuanian users BernadetteCydonia and Lietuvis

I don't follow your selection (it's very long and quite complicated for me), but I'm curious about it since it has a unique structure in the European scene.

How is Eurovision treated in your country? I mean, by the audience AND by the artists.

Is "Eurovizijos dainų konkurso nacionalinė atranka" a successful tv show? I tried to find tv ratings somewhere but I didn't succeed.

Do you think your broadcaster enter Eurovision with the actual goal to win the contest?

Eurovision is pretty popular in Lithuania. But it's not taken very seriously. A lot of people think it's a joke, but they still tune in to watch. Artists are even more snobby, a lot of really good Lithuanian artists don't even bother qualifying. But this might also be due to the selection process we have. I think the broadcaster is non-partial, whoever people/jury decide the winner is, so be it. The big problem is that a lot of jury members are unqualified/incompetent when it comes down to music, but their vote has a huge impact. Combine that with a relatively small talent pool we have, and it really limits our competitiveness when it comes down to providing a potential contender song for the Eurovision.

BernadetteCydonia
21st February 2018, 18:51
Krishoes, I know these were answered by Lietuvis already but I'll give my own shot at these questions on how do I think. :D


How is Eurovision treated in your country? I mean, by the audience AND by the artists.

Audience... idk about audience reacting to Eurovision but I would always lurk through comment sections only to find our people usually finding some blatant opportunity to get out their Russian propaganda and call each others "vatniks". There's always bash to whatever we choose, either it was too obvious of a choice or some random act won again thanks to our 'precious' jury... and it's true because our jury's winner in each selection heat usually ends up as the winner of the show for the week since our 2016 format (except for a couple exceptions such as Lolita Zero winning once thanks to televoting last year and Monika Marija surging up top on the televote top straight after her performing the song and winning heat 4 this year) and it's barely possible to do something about it because juries over-influence the televoting and makes us vote for their favourites so that we could have a clear winner in the final show... :P your fault for adapting to jury votes guys. why didn't you simcard revolt last year? huh? And after Eurovision, if our entry qualifies, that makes our nation's gentlemen to cheer for their entrant for at least 2 more days and if we do well - hooray. If we flop, both in semi and final, our people foulmouth our contestants for doing so terribly. That's the truth that won't set you free tbh. :/

Artists: some are sweet in front of video interviews and bitchy on online/newspaper interviews if their result goes sour (Mia this year, ahem), some are sweet all the time. Selection-wise. Eurovision-wise... I haven't heard anyone openly criticizing the contest that much lol.


Is "Eurovizijos dainų konkurso nacionalinė atranka" a successful tv show? I tried to find tv ratings somewhere but I didn't succeed.

According to our HoD, yes it is. People do watch it.


Do you think your broadcaster enter Eurovision with the actual goal to win the contest?

I am not quite even sure anymore... I think they're at least happy to have had their country qualified.


When will we know the semi running order?

idk either...

Well it's not like we're the only country in whose NFs the simcards are getting abused. :lol: They don't seem to be that much of an ordeal to me because each act can only have max. 5 televotes from one number, and if you divide numbers like 2400 by 5 you get 480, an average that could be received by an act that later gets 3-1 in the televoting points result. Meanwhile in Latvia this year, if their numbers of televoting are through the roof, THEN we could suspect simcard abuse (because they will allow only 1 vote to 1 act per phone, and that means you only vote for your favourite once and no other lesser favourite gets a chance to be voted by you).

while yes technically there are quite a few simcard abuse examples (*cough* Marija *cough* her Lithuanian fans shouldn't be aware of what amount of points does jury give her in order to vote and pretend that she will 'qualify' on her own *cough* not hating but this will soon get outta hand if it keeps happening *cough* *cough*). but that doesn't mean there are too many simcards out there in Lithuania that were bought :P

21st February 2018, 19:59
I agree with Krishoes, the selection is too long and sometimes without a logical sense! This is a useless show, too many episodes and then the jury lets win a bad song!
Last year I would never leave win Fusedmarc, I still wonder how they won, I would have given the victory to Aiste, Gabrielius, Paula or Greta Zazza.
This year will end up like 2017, will win a song that will not go to the final... This is a very strange selection, the "good" songs are 4 or 5 maybe, the others are strange, flat or useless! I say this with interest towards your country, because every country should send the best song to Eurovision.

I listened to the songs in the semifinal and those that I would see well to the eurovision are few, I refer to:
- Paula very pop song, she is beautiful, sing and dance together really well and enrich the scene with some man dancers
- Monika Marija with a powerful staging (lights, wind, back vocalist etc)
- Gabrielius Vagelis sings really well, the song should be strengthened but please change the hairstyle
- Kotryna Juodzevičiūtė like Czech Republic 2018 but please she should change clothing with one more suited to the genre of the song and the dance is not good

All the other songs are very flat, out in the semifinal of ESC, out of context and irrecoverable. BernadetteCydonia Lietuvis

● Monika Marija released a new version of "The Truth".
● People pretty much believe Ieva Zasimauskaitė is the jury's "chosen one" this year. But that doesn't stop them from rooting for acts like Kotryna and The Roop.

LRT should actually enlist the help of ESCUNITED. A special jury with us all on it. When we get there I turn nasty and threaten each one of you to vote for GeraiGerai before things get messy. It would be a memorable event and Lithuania would end up with a fab and fly ESC entry for 2018xheart

All of us? Maybe LRT should select 2 Lithuanian members and 3 international ones for starters. Because all of us aren't competent against whatever Ramūnas Zilnys sees as a perfect Eurovision act... :P but we need to fight him, yeah!

My body's not ready for this madness.

I am at least hoping for my top 1 to make it, otherwise I'm cancelling all considerations to ask my mom to buy me and herself a ticket to Žalgiris Arena </3

Anyways, it's time for me to retrospect my rankings up and post the remainder of them here. I hope that all of you don't take my rankings too much into your heart if I don't like your fave :$

I can't believe that "love shadow" singer is the same girl as "that girl" singer

I cared so little about her last year's song, i thought Kotryna is taking part for the first time:lol:
