"I've Been Waiting for This Night" is a song performed by Lithuanian singer Donny Montell. The song, written by Jonas Thander and Beatrice Robertsson, represented Lithuania in the Eurovision Song Contest 2016. The song was released as a digital download on 8 March 2016 through UAB "Gyva Muzika".

Eurovision Song Contest[edit]

"I've Been Waiting for This Night" performed by Donny Montell was selected as the Lithuanian entry for the Eurovision Song Contest 2016 through the national final "Eurovizijos" dainų konkurso nacionalinė atranka (English: "Eurovision" Song Contest national selection), organised by the Lithuanian public broadcaster Lithuanian National Radio and Television (LRT). The national final took place over ten weeks and involved 28 artists initially competing in two different competitive streams: artists that applied with a song and artists that were matched with a song from the song submissions LRT received because they did not have a song.[1] Donny Montell applied to compete with "I've Been Waiting For This Night" and therefore competed with other artists who also applied with songs.[2] The results of each show were determined by the combination of votes from a jury panel and a public vote. In the final on 12 March 2016, six artists and songs remained and "I've Been Waiting For This Night" was selected as the winner after achieving the highest score from both the jury panel and the public vote.[3] Montell performed the song during the second semi-final of the 2016 contest on 12 May, and ended up qualifying to the final on 14 May, held at the Ericsson Globe in Stockholm, Sweden.[4] Montell qualified to the final on 14 May, and came 9th with a total of 200 points.[5]
