"C'est ma vie" is a ballad type song by Evelina Sašenko that represented Lithuania at the Eurovision Song Contest 2011, held in Düsseldorf, Germany, after winning both the televote and jury voting in Eurovizija 2011,[1] the national selection show for Lithuania. The song is sung mostly in English but has some phrases in French too.

At Eurovision[edit]

Lithuania started their Eurovision campaign by performing in starting position 17 in the first semi-final on 10 May 2011. Evelina managed to place 5th with 81 points, earning her a spot in the final on Saturday night. After the close of the first semi, Lithuania drew position 4 in the grand final on May 14, 2011.

During the finals, some sign language was used as she began to sing the second verse of the song but this was only for a brief time. Despite a strong performance it did not reflect with the votes, only managing 19th place with 63 points. This is however, Lithuania's 3rd best result in the contest to date.
