Lithuania is one of the countries that selects next year's Eurovision Song Contest entry before 2012 comes to an end.

    I certainly hope Lithuania chooses something other than the song "Happy and Free." It starts off good but then it just gets repetitive and annoying, at least for me. Also, I don't think they'll get to the final with that song. Actually, I think "War in the Wardrobe" already has a better chance of getting to the final, especially with a good performance. report to the moderator

    From the second semifinal to final goes:

    1. Linas Adomaitis
    2. Girmantė Vaitkutė
    3. DAR
    4. Monika

    I'm very happy about Girmantė. All others are complete trash, especially DAR. report to the moderator

    Sometimes I regret that I am from Lithuania. Some do not understand the music, what it means. All just want to fit in the standards of the Eurovision! Gabrielius did not come to the finals, the jury don't want to send Linas, they said Monica's show was silly - I'm ashamed! We are never - ever - gonna make it up to the final 10. report to the moderator

    Really disappointed. Conflicting televote and jury results have put the wrong songs into the Lithuanian national final, according to the comments below. Neringa Šiaudikytė - Used to Be and Elvina Milkauskaitė - Closer; scored the exact overall points as Andrius Pojavis, both also scored higher televotes. Jury seems to be weighted more than televote, despite a supposedly 50/50 selection method. The same happened to Gerai Gerai & Miss Sheep in the heats, which resulted in a wildcard into the semi-finals.

    Neringa Šiaudikytė and Elvina Milkauskaitė deserve wildcards.

    Božolė was again saved by the jury despite the another poor televote result. report to the moderator

    No "Sacrifice" in the final?
    Lithuanian people don't know how to vote... report to the moderator

    Oh my God, Bozole went through? Really? I hated their song a lot, it's unoriginal and boring :/ And where's Elvina and Neringa? They deserved to go through! I don't know what's wrong with lithuanian jury, seriously. I have this feeling that Lithuania will choose wrong once again -sobs- anyways, at least Gerai Gerai are in the finals. Glad that Gabrielius is there too, but I think Sacrifice is way better than I fall in love. (It's too cheesy!)
    Used to be, Closer or Sacrifice deserve the wildcard!
    I will be cheering for Gintare, Girmante, Monika and DAR in this semifinals ♥ Please, Lithuania. Don't dissapoint us once again. report to the moderator

    What is wrong with the jury, seriously Elvina Milkauskaite - Closer was such a good song and voice, and annoyingly if the public vote took priority she would be in the final but the jury's vote take's priority , why? "Closer" was such a good song & it came second in the public vote but came second TO LAST (8th) in the jury vote, hopefully she can get a wild card or something, such a good song - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q0KFVz6l2uw report to the moderator

    LINAS ADOMAITIS, GIRMANTĖ VAITKUTĖ & MONIKA! 100% report to the moderator

    What's wrong in that juries team!? U.U LOL Televoting was a little better than juries...
    For me, the bests 4 acts were: Gerai & Miss sheep, Elvina Milkauskaite, Gabrielus - Sacrifice & Neringa - Used to be.
    For me, Sacrifice is too much better than I fall in love...
    I don't like Bozole & Andrius' songs...
    I hope Sacrifice or Closer will receive the wildcard. But is too bad 'cause one of the will be eliminated! :'( report to the moderator
