Welcome to The Xtra Files, our new series which will give you an insight into what the team at escXtra think of your favourite entries into this year’s contest! Today, we review Lithuania.

Now that all the songs have been released, we are able to review each and every one of them. Our honest and brutal reviews will keep you entertained until the rehearsals start in May! We will also each give a score out of 10 for every entry, and create an escXtra leaderboard of the entries! You can see our preview reviews here.

Today, it is the turn of the Lithuanian entry, ‘Rain of Revolution’ by Fusedmarc, to be reviewed by Katarina, Luke, Nathan, Rodrigo, Sagheer, and Simon. Let’s get started!

The Reviews

Katarina

After two years of sending catchy pop songs, Lithuania is back to its weird and confusing self. I like the lyrics of this song, but that’s it. The music isn’t memorable at all, the vocalist is shouting instead of singing and her dance moves creep me out.

Luke

OH MY GOD IT’S LITTLE MY! We have our first moomin at Eurovision, guys! Oh, no, wait, it’s just Cilia from Fusedmarc. This isn’t good, Lithuania. I wish that a rain of revolution had filled the arena during the national final, drowned Fusedmarc, and saved us all from this horror. The vocals are great, but they definitely don’t make for the appalling song. The overall effect is: cheap.

Nathan

An absolute disaster of a national final was rounded off by this winning. How on earth so many others were overlooked in favour of this is beyond me.

Rodrigo

Three minutes of intolerable noise.

Sagheer

After last year’s top 10 finish, I had high hopes for Lithuania and to say I’m disappointed is a huge understatement.

Simon

Huh?

I've watched Eurovision for as long as I can remember, but my interest really built in 2008, after I decided to watch the semifinals online, out of boredom, before the final...I was blown away by the quality of the show and have been hooked ever since! I'm a competitive trampolinist and I love baking. I've also just completed a master's degree in Research Methods in Psychology at University College London.
