  2. Antoine Wend – “Say No More“
  3. Marius Petrauskas – “Kol Laiko Yra”

  6. VB gang – “KABOOM!!!”
  7. Luka – “Move On“
  8. Clockwork Creep – “Empty“

Lithuania is eager to build on its recent Eurovision success, recalling Monika Linkytė’s performance last year in Liverpool with her song “Stay”. She secured 11th place in the final, scoring a total of 127 points.

For Eurovizija.LT 2024, each artist advancing from a Semi-Final will receive a 1,500-euro budget for their song’s staging. The selection process is set to have 5 semi-finals and a grand final. In each semi-final, 8 artists will compete, with 2 qualifying for the final. The first semi-final is scheduled for Saturday, January 13, 2024, while the grand final will take place on February 17, 2024. Unique to this year’s final is the inclusion of a “Super-Final” round during the Grand Final where the top 3 artists will continue on to compete for the chance to represent Lithuania at Eurovision, which will be determined solely by public vote.

It’s also important to note that the semi-finals are pre-recorded each week and not broadcast live. In case of a tie during the voting, the jury’s decision will prevail. The dates for the five semi-finals are January 13, 20, 27, and February 3 and 10.

With the first semi-final airing on January 13 at 20:00 CET, Lithuania’s Eurovision aspirations for 2024 are set in motion, capturing the excitement and anticipation of Eurovision fans across the nation and beyond.
