Lithuania: LRT opens song submission window for Pabandom iš Naujo 2023!

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:

Eurovision 2022: Lithuania’s Second Rehearsal!

The third act for today is Lithuania with Monica Liu with her song “Sentimentai” and she is ready to make her second impression of this year’s Eurovision stage in Turin.

Who is Monika?

Monica Liu is one of Lithuania’s most popular and respected artists. After graduating from the University of Klaipėda, where she studied jazz, globe-trotting Monica spent time studying in Massachusetts, living in London, before then settling in Vilnius.

Since her debut in 2015, Liu has released three albums and plenty more singles. Her repertoire is so impressive that she’s been called upon to sit on the panel of two of Lithuania’s biggest talent shows: The Voice and The Masked Singer.

According to the artist, she has been considering making her way to the Eurovision stage for many years, and the time proved right for her now, upon the composition of Sentimentai, which was written and recorded in London.

The Rehearsal

The performance starts with many close ups to Monika’s face. She makes use of the lights in various parts of her performance. The first long range shots are in the first chorus. Any many parts of the performance we can see a second Monika. She also wears the same dress as she wore in the national final.
