Eurovision 2024: Lithuania’s First Rehearsal!

The third act to perform on the Eurovision stage today is the talented Silvester Belt from Lithuania, with his song Luktelk!

Who is Silvester Belt?

Music has been an integral part of Silvester’s life since he was a child.

His songs are inspired by personal life experiences, particularly his memories of exploring his sexuality in a homophobic environment and how the repression of those feelings deeply affected him.

“Luktelk” (translation: “wait”/”hold on”) is about being stuck in a gap between two stages, in barely existing and feeling alive when you have to hold on and dance through what life throws at you.

Silvester also participated in the Vaikų Eurovizijos Nacionalinė Atranka – Lithuania’s qualifying competition for Junior Eurovision in 2010.

The Rehearsal

The staging for this needs no props – similar to the Lithuanian national finals, EUROVIZIJA.LT – it’s Silvester in his red leather suit, backed by four male dancers with masked faces and lots of red and back strobe lighting. The masks have had an upgrade – less like turtlenecks and more like black hoods. No pyro for Lithuania but according to our exclusive information a new dancebreak has been added to the song!

The second rehearsal of Lithuania will take place on Wednesday May 1st, when we will have a better picture of what we will see from Silvester Belt on the Eurovision stage, as we will have the official TV snippet.

Below you can watch a small clip from Lithuania’s first rehearsal from TikTok:
