Lithuania in the Eurovision Song Contest

Back in 1994 Lithuania made their Eurovision debut in Dublin with Ovidijus Vyšniauskas and his entry, ‘Lopšinė mylimai‘, which placed 25th and last with the dreaded nil points. After a brief hiatus and sporadic appearances for the next decade, Lithuania have participated in every contest since 2004. Their best result came in 2006 with the entry, ‘We Are The Winners‘ by LT United. Despite not actually winning, the group achieved sixth place with 162 and remain a novelty classic.

Last year the Lithuanian public chose Monika Liu and ‘Sentimentai’ through Pabandom iš naujo 2022. During the Turin contest she qualified for the Grand Final and placed 14th with 128 points.
