Andrius Pojavis wins Lithuanian final!
Two presentation shows, five qualification heats, two semi-finals and winning the majority of the votes of the expert jury and the viewing public at home in today's final. That's all it took Andrius Pojavis to get through in order to represent Lithuania at the 2013 Eurovision Song Contest!
The race to represent Lithuania at the 2013 Eurovision Song Contest is over. Moments ago the following seven songs competed for the ticket to Malmö (click on the song titles to watch their semi-final performaces):
- BOŽOLĖ - Happy And Free (Andrius Borisevičius, Audrius Balsevičius)
- IEVA ZASIMAUSKAITĖ & GABRIELIUS VAGELIS - I Fall In Love (Raigardas Tautkus, Raimondas J.Nabus)
- GERAI GERAI & MISS SHEEP - War In The Warderobe (Vilius Tamošaitis)
- LINAS ADOMAITIS - I W 2night (Linas Adomaitis, Bjorn Hansen)
- DAR - JUMP! (Arvydas Martinėnas, Gorgi)
- GIRMANTĖ VAITKUTĖ - Time To Shine (Vytautas Bikus, Girmantė Vaitkutė)
- ANDRIUS POJAVIS - Something (Andrius Pojavis)
The eighth finalist, Monika, who was drawn number 8 in the running order, couldn't performed in the final due to laryngitis. Andrius Pojavis was the one who got the best positive reaction in the mobile app balsuok! and DAR won the lrytas.lt poll, but both results had no power in the actual outcome.
Then three of the songs were voted through the super-final stage (winner in bold):
- Gerai Gerai & Miss Sheep (2nd) - War In The Warderobe
- Girmante Vaitkute (3rd) - Time To Shine
- Andrius Pojavis - Something
As informed before this was a very open competition and the final result was unexpected and somewhat surprising; Something barely reached the final. Andrius Pojavis (pictured above) will compete in Malmö where he will try to reach the Eurovision Song Contest Final for the third time in a row for Lithuania. In Baku last May the country was represented by Donny Montell's Love Is Blind.
