After playing for a while with the anguish of their fans, The Roop in their statements today, dispel the gossip (which they themselves started) and wanted them to try another participation in the Eurovision Song Contest, next year.
Ever since the Eurovision final took place in Rotterdam in May, we have been receiving requests to return to the national final and participate again and again. We do not say no and we do not burn bridges or close the door on this idea. However, this may not happen this year (we are talking about 2022).
Eurovision has taught us a lot. There must be fun in an international context. As a result, we had to take a broader look when we got there.
We also want to share some experiences with new participants. Here, it is not only the song that matters, but also how you present it – the image has to match the song… Just feel what you want to say and follow it… Eurovision is not a goal, but a great start. So do not give up, no matter how successful you are.
We are very happy that Eurovision fans all over the world have us in their hearts. It is a united family full of good feelings, where we feel comfortable!
We remind you that these rumors started last week, when on the occasion of the release of their new song, which lasts exactly three minutes and was accompanied on YouTube by the description: Eurovision 2022, the well-known band avoided giving a clear answer to the question, whether they will participate again in the “Pabandom iš naujo”, through which the selection of Lithuania will be made this year as well.
Lithuania finished 8th at Eurovision 2021, with The Roop and Discoteque, which is the second best place the country has won in the history of the competition, after LT United 6th in 2006 with We Are The Winners .
