Saturday 17th February will see Lithuania select their representative for the 2024 Eurovision Song Contest. After five heats, 10 acts are ready to take to the stage.

Don’t forget the voting system tonight is a little different compared to previous years. While 50% of jury and televote still decides the rank order of the acts, the top three then go to a super final which is decided purely by televote. Therefore, the opinion of the Lithuanian public is likely to hold far more weight this time around.

The final running order for the show is:

  • Aistè – We Will Rule the World
  • Žalvarinis – Gaudė vėjai
  • Pluie de Comètes – Be Careful
  • Silvester Belt – Luktelk
  • VB Gang – Kaboom!!!
  • Il Senso – Time
  • Monika Marija – Unlove You Starting Tomorrow
  • Shower – Impossible
  • Queens of Roses – Walk Through Fire
  • The Roop – Simple Joy

Silvester Belt – Luktelk

Silvester Belt competed in the first heat of Eurovizija.LT and since then his song ‘Luktelk’ has become a huge hit in Lithuania. It has stayed at the top of the Spotify Viral 50 in Lithuania since his performance and recently he appeared as a guest performer at Natalija Bunkė‘s concert at the Zalgiris Arena in Kaunas where tens of thousands of fans sang along to his song. This, along with being the bookies’ favourite to win, makes him the clear frontrunner going into tonight. However, as we’ve seen this national final season, anything could happen! Could Silvester lift the trophy tonight?

The Roop – Simple Joy

Another act who can’t be discounted from the win are two-time Lithuanian representatives The Roop. Hoping to strike it lucky for a third time with their song ‘Simple Joy’, it’s clear the group continue to be a popular choice, having achieved top scores with both jurors and televoters in last week’s fifth and final heat. In 2021, they gave Lithuania their best result since 2006 with ‘Discotheque’ which placed 8th. Could they bring success to Lithuania again?

VB Gang – Kaboom!!!

Another act that proved hugely popular with the televote all the way back in the first heat were VB Gang, whose weird and wonderful track ‘Kaboom!!!’ certainly left an impression, so much so they achieved top points with the Lithuanian public. With lyrics in Korean that translate as “Noodles, chicken, yes!” it’s exactly the kind of off-the-wall quirkiness many love to see at Eurovision. Will it be enough to get them the top prize tonight?

Il Senso – Time

The final act that could be in contention for the crown tonight are opera quartet Il Senso. They performed their song ‘Time’ in the fourth heat, where over 3000 members of the Lithuanian public voted for them, the second highest turnout of televoters after The Roop. They also scored well with the juries, achieving 10 points, meaning they can’t be discounted from making the final three who will go through to the super-final. Could we be seeing opera in Malmö? Only time will tell!

You can tune into the final of Eurovizija.LT 2024 on Saturday 17th February at 20:00pm CET on the LRT website – where you’ll also see performances from Latvia 2024 representative Dons, popular Lithuanian girl group Mango and last year’s Lithuania representative Monika Linkytė.
