Vilnius, Lithuania -

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):

  1. BOŽOLĖ - Happy And Free (Andrius Borisevičius, Audrius Balsevičius)
  2. IEVA ZASIMAUSKAITĖ & GABRIELIUS VAGELIS - I Fall In Love (Raigardas Tautkus, Raimondas J.Nabus)
  3. GERAI GERAI & MISS SHEEP - War In The Warderobe (Vilius Tamošaitis)
  4. LINAS ADOMAITIS - I W 2night (Linas Adomaitis, Bjorn Hansen)
  5. DAR - JUMP! (Arvydas Martinėnas, Gorgi)
  6. GIRMANTĖ VAITKUTĖ - Time To Shine (Vytautas Bikus, Girmantė Vaitkutė)
  7. 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):

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.

    It's a usual song without any chances to win. I wish all the songs of the contest were as cool and unforgettable as the song Solayoh from Belarus! That's the real winner! report to the moderator

    Than I heard this song for first time, it wasn't something special. But I started listening for a while and it's getting better and better. I thing it's not only for me. This song it's very risky, 'cause in ESC people will hear "Something" only one time and then they will vote. They can misunderstand Andrius performance and Lithuania can't get to the final. But anyway, good luck, Lithuania will be support you. report to the moderator

    Andrius Pojavis' entry isn't the worst and certainly not outstanding, but it's a risky decision from Lithuania. This is the type of song that'll run the risk of being a flop with the juries at Eurovision. However, Lithuania have defied the odds from the last two years when it comes to semi-final qualifying. So who knows what could happen at Malmö... report to the moderator
