Live shows[edit]

The live shows started on 16 December 2012. Each week, the contestants perform and the voting lines open after the performances. When the results are announced, the bottom two contestants perform another song of their choice (the final showdown) and then judges choose which of the two to eliminate. If the judges' votes are tied, the vote goes to deadlock and the contestant with the fewest public votes that night is eliminated.

Each week while the voting is still in progress, there is a group performance by the remaining contestants or a musical performance from a guest (or a judge). Judge Saulius Prūsaitis performed on the first show with his group Happyendless, while the second one featured two group performances: one by the boys category and another without the boys. In week 3, Rūta Ščiogolevaitė sang "Run To You" and then "Proud Mary" duet with Kristina Radžiukynaitė, who was eliminated the previous week. KeyMono performed several songs the following week, while there was a group performance before the individual performances in week 5. Then the remaining contestants performed another one with presenter Marijonas Mikutavičius during the voting and Povilas Meškėla appeared on the sixth show with his group Rojaus Tūzai. Vaidas Baumila, a former contestant on the 2005 Lithuanian music competition "Dangus" performed the following week. He sang "'Til I Hear You Sing" from the Love Never Dies musical and then his own song called "Ieškok Manęs".
