LRT, the Lithuanina national broadcaster, opened the submission window for Pabandom iš naujo 2023, the country’s national final for Eurovision Song Contest 2023.
The search for Monika Liu’s successor on the representation of Lithuania started a few hours ago with the opening of the song submission window for the 2023 national final. Those interested can submit their songs starting today, until the deadline on Monday, December 12.
Ar least 20 songs will compete to win Lithuania’s representation in Liverpool, with the first of up to five shows airing in January. Depending on the number of the songs that will be chosen, up to five shows will be broadcasted, containing: two heats, two semi-finals and the Grand Final.
Audrius Giržadas, the Head of the Lithuanian Delegation, commented:
“Every year, the Eurovision Song Contest unites and gathers people in front of television screens throughout Lithuania, Europe and even the world. This is not only an important tradition, but also a unique opportunity to show this huge audience the work of Lithuanian music artists, who we are often proud of within the country.
In recent years, in order to further raise the bar for the quality of the Eurovision national selection, we have provided support to the contestants. We will continue this, because we hope that in the selections we will see and hear both artists who attract full arenas and talented artists who are even less heard by the Lithuanian audience.”
The last winner of Pabandom iš Naujo and Lithuania’s representative in Eurovision 2022 was Monika Liu with the song “Sentimemtai” and ended up in 14th place with 128 points:
