Eurovision 2022: Lithuania’s First Rehearsal!
The third act for today is Lithuania with Monica Liu with her song “Sentimentai” and she is ready to make her first 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.
Unfortunately, the Lithuanian Head of Delegation has told LRT this morning that they are no longer able to stage Monika Liu’s Eurovision performance as they expected, due to a lot of technical difficulties. So, as we know so far, the Lithuanian Delegation decided to present something completely different from what they expected.
On the first run, Monika has gone for a stunning silver sequinned dress and a backdrop of atmospheric swirly graphics. Otherwise it’s a stripped-back, classy performance – no dancers and props required, Monika’s totally got this.
There’s a lovely camera shot at the end of Monika’s performance where it sweeps up from the waterfall to Monika on stage. In her long sequinned dress she looked like a fish – it’s a really nice ending that makes the most of this incredible stage.
