Lithuania in the Eurovision Song Contest
Lithuania has competed in every contest since 2004, qualifying for the final 9 of the 16 times they have competed in the semifinals (the best record of the three Baltic nations). Lithuania’s best finish coming in 2006 with LT United’s song, “We Are The Winners.” Though they didn’t win, their 6th place finish is still unmatched today.
Last year, Lithuania chose The Roop to represent them in Rotterdam with the song “On Fire.” On Fire was an instant hit, rocketing Lithuania to the top of the odds and becoming a semi-viral TikTok trend in Lithuania. However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Eurovision was cancelled. LRT granted The Roop an automatic pass to the final of Pabandom Iš Naujo! this year.
