Lithuania: changes in Silvester Belt’s outfit

Silvester Belt’s costume will have some changes compared to the outfit he wore during Eurovizija.LT national final.

According to stylist Vainotas Jakštas, the new outfit was created with the shape of the Eurovision stage in Malmö in mind.  The Lithuanian team wants the audience to see the costume from all angles adequately.  The goal is to make it look as it waves, resembling the movement of petals.  Also, the name of the song “Luktelk” will be written on the back of the shoes.  The hoods of the backing dancers now have sleek lines.

Nevertheless, the new costume’s color, fabric, and silhouette will remain similar to the national final.

The Lithuanian team in charge of creating the Eurovision look for Silvester is an all-Lithuanian team.  Vainotas Jakštas has joined forces with designers Marija Petraitytė, Kamilė Peleckytė and Gintarė Pečkytėthe making of Silvester Belt’s costume.

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:

Silvester Belt, the representative of Lithuania at Eurovision 2024, met the Ukrainian representatives backstage during the concert. They had the opportunity to get acquainted, converse, exchange pleasantries, and teach each other various phrases in their native languages.

“It’s wonderful that they wanted to get to know each other, to connect, to communicate, and to maintain a beautiful friendship from the beginning. The performers were very charming, friendly, and I have no doubt that they are ready to impress Europe. I feel honored because I have already become a fan of theirs. I believe they will be at the top. At least in my personal ranking, for sure. We must remember that the war is not over yet; it continues, so we need to focus and make sacrifices,” Silvester Belt stated on LRT.lt.
