Lithuania in the Eurovision Song Contest
◄2018 2019

Lithuania will participate in the Eurovision Song Contest 2019. The Lithuanian broadcaster LRT televizija (LRT) will organise the national final „Eurovizijos“ dainų konkurso nacionalinė atranka 2019 in order to select the Lithuanian entry for the 2019 contest in Tel Aviv, Israel.

Background[edit]

Prior to the 2019 Contest, Lithuania had participated in the Eurovision Song Contest nineteen times since its first entry in 1994.[1] The nation’s best placing in the contest was sixth, which it achieved in 2006 with the song "We Are the Winners" performed by LT United. Following the introduction of semi-finals for the 2004, Lithuania, to this point, has managed to qualify to the final eight times.

In 2018, Lithuania was represented by Ieva Zasimauskaitė and the song "When We're Old", the country ended in 12th place in the grand final with 181 points.Giving Lithuania its third-best position ever in the contest.

For the 2019 Contest, the Lithuanian national broadcaster, Lithuanian National Radio and Television (LRT), will broadcast the event within Lithuania and will organise the selection process for the nation's entry. Other than the internal selection of their debut entry in 1994, Lithuania has selected their entry consistently through a national final procedure.

At Eurovision[edit]

The Eurovision Song Contest 2019 will take place in Tel Aviv, Israel and will consist of two semi-finals on 14 and 16 May and the final on 18 May 2019. According to Eurovision rules, all nations with the exceptions of the host country and the "Big 5" (France, Germany, Italy, Spain and the United Kingdom) are required to qualify from one of two semi-finals in order to compete for the final; the top ten countries from each semi-final progress to the final.

Semi-final[edit]

Voting[edit]

Voting during the three shows involved each country awarding two sets of points from 1-8, 10 and 12: one from their professional jury and the other from televoting. Each nation's jury consisted of five music industry professionals who are citizens of the country they represent, with their names published before the contest to ensure transparency. This jury judged each entry based on: vocal capacity; the stage performance; the song's composition and originality; and the overall impression by the act. In addition, no member of a national jury was permitted to be related in any way to any of the competing acts in such a way that they cannot vote impartially and independently. The individual rankings of each jury member as well as the nation's televoting results were released shortly after the grand final.
