Lithuania: Monika Marija to sing only one song in the final of Eurovizija 2019

"Light On" is her preferred choice

Monika Marija is one of the big favourites to win Lithuania’s national selection Eurovizija and to represent the country in Tel Aviv. She has already qualified to the final with “Light On“, but will compete in the second semifinal with “Criminal“. Today she announced that she will only sing one song in the final.

Criminal or Light On?

Monika Marija announced this on her social media accounts, on Instagram and Facebook. She says both of the songs are very special for her, but she only wants to compete with one song in the final.

Therefore she asks her followers to not to vote for “Criminal” this Saturday, on the second semifinal of Eurovizija.

I’ll be very grateful to the jury, if you don’t give me points in this semifinal, and I ask the audience to save their money and I sincerely ask you not to vote for me and my song “Criminal” in the second semifinal. I am very happy that my work has received your attention and support, this Saturday I will sing your song “Criminal” with all my heart! And with “Light On”, we will meet in the finals!

This probably is a way for her to make sure that the votes don’t split between her two songs in the final of Eurovizija.

I started watching Eurovision back in 2006, when I was only 10 and couldn't stay up to see Lordi winning. I attended my first contest in 2013 in Malmö. I'm studying journalism and I love music — you will probably never see me without my headphones on.
