About Donny Montell

Donny Montell (Donatas Montvydas) is a Lithuanian singer and songwriter from Vilnius. He represented Lithuania at the 2012 Eurovision Song Contest in Azerbaijan. After being part of the Europe's favourite TV show, the Lithuanian pop artist promised himself to return to the contest one more time.

Montell (28) is a well-known artist in his homeland and successful participant of many TV-projects in Lithuania. He gained popularity after taking part in various prestigious festivals. In 2008, Montell won the Grand Prix prize at the Belorussian festival, Slavianskij Bazar.

Two years later, he scored another victory, winning the show Dance With Me. However, this was just the beginning, as he was taking part in many popular shows and contests together with a group of professional dancers.

Participating in the national selection was just a matter of time for Donny Montell. In 2012, he introduced himself to a much wider audience, by taking part in LRT's selections "Eurovizija" with the song Love Is Blind. Winning the national selection in Lithuania brought him to Baku, where he took part at the Eurovision Song Contest for the very first time.
