Lithuania: This is the running order for the Final of “Eurovizija.lt 2024”!

On this Saturday, the 17th of February, the Grand Final of Eurovizija.lt 2024 will take place in Lithuania and the winner will earn the opportunity to represent the country in this year’s Eurovision Song Contest, in Malmö. Thus, a few hours ago, the national broadcaster of Lithuania, LRT, revealed the official running order of all the ten (10) candidate entries, which is the following:

(You can listen to all the ten songs by clicking on the songs’ titles)

  1. Aistè – “We Will Rule the World”
  2. Žalvarinis – “Gaudė vėjai”
  3. Pluie de Comètes – “Be careful”
  4. Silvester Belt – “Luktelk“
  5. VB gang – KABOOM!!!”
  6. Il Senso – “Time”
  7. Shower – “Impossible”
  8. Monika Marija – “Starting Tommorow”
  9. Queens of Roses – “Walk through fire“
  10. The Roop – “Simple Joy”

In this year’s “Eurovizija.lt” multiple artists are expected to make a guest appearence in the show, including last year’s representative, Monika Linkytė, who will perform for once more her song “Stay“, the Lithuanian entry for Eurovision 2023. Moreover, the guest list includes also the famous Lithuanian girl trio Mango, who are going to perform a medley including all of their greatest hit songs.

This year’s format

It is of great importance though to remember that this year’s “Eurovizija.lt” has a different format from all the previous years. More specifically, in total five (5) different semi finals were conducted this year, while from each one only two songs qualified for the Grand Final through a split voting system between the public’s vote and a jury’s vote. However, only the top three entries of the Final will qualify to one more final stage, the so called “Super Final” on Saturday night, from which the winner will be determined only by the public’s vote.

Until we find out who is going to be Monika’s successor on the stage of Malmö, take a look at her performance on Liverpool’s stage in May of 2023:

During the opening ceremony a draw was held in order to determine three spots in Sunday’s show running order:

  • the country that will open the show and perform at spot number one

The draw was conducted by Lissandro, last year’s Junior Eurovision winner with the following outcome:

  • Spain will perform at spot number one
  • France will perform at spot number twelve
  • The Netherlands will close the show, at spot number sixteen

Albania: The running order for the first two nights of Festivali i Këngës 62!

Even at this early stage, the Albanian national selection is already underway. Festivali i Këngës 62, which will indicate the next Albanian representative in Malmö is scheduled to take place as usual in late December.

With the preparations of FiK 62 underway, RTSH held a press conference today, revealing, inter alia, the running order for the first two nights of the competition.

Specifically the running order for the first two nights of Festivali i Këngës 62 is the following:

Night 1
  1.   Stivi Ushe – Askush si ty
  2.   Besa Kokëdhima – Zemën n’Dorë
  3.   Mal Retkoceri – Çmendur
  4.   Eldis Arrnjeti – Një kujtim
  5.   Shpat Deda – S’mund t’jetoj pa ty
  6.   Jehona Ponari – Evol
  7.   PeterPan Quartet
  8.   Festina Mejzini – Melos
  9.   Kastro Zizo – 2073
  10.     Luan Durmishi – Përsëritja
  11.     Melodajn Mancaku – Nuk jemi ne
  12.     Olsi Ballta – Unë
  13.     Andi Tanko – Herë pas herë
  14.     Sergio Hajdini – Uragan
  15.     Santino De Bartolo – Dua të rri me ty
  16.     Olimpia Smajlaj – Asaj
Night 2
  1.   Big Basta and Vesa Luma – Mbinatyrale
  2.   Elsa Lila – Mars
  3.   Jasmina Hako – Ti
  4.   Michela Paluca – Për veten
  5.   Anduel Kovaçi – Nan’
  6.   Irma Lepori
  7.   Sardi Strugaj – Boshastisur
  8.   Erina and the Elementals – Jetën n’skaj
  9.   Kleansa Susaj – Pikturë
  10.     Arsi Bako – Zgjohu
  11.     Tiri Gjoci – Në ëndërr
  12.     Besa Krasniqi – Esenciale
  13.     Bledi Kaso – Çdo gjë mbaroi
  14.     Troy – Horizonti i ëndrrave
  15.     Martina Serreqi – Vetëm ty

 

On the aforementioned list, we can notice that the names of Samanta and Kejsi Tola are missing. Indeed, Samanta and Kejsi Tola were replaced by Irma Lepuri and the PeterPan Quartet respectively. The withdrawal of those two artists was revealed just after the announcement of FiK 62 regulations, which were probably the motive that gave them the rise of stepping out of the competition.

Which are FiK 62 regulations?

Although, it was announced that the winner of Festivali i Këngës 62 and hence the Albanian representative in Eurovision 2024 would be decided by both a jury committee and the audience on a 50/50 proportion, it turns out that this scenario is not true. At the press conference today, it was mentioned that the system will remain the same as last year. This means that the jury of the festival will choose the winner of Festivali i Këngës 62 and the TV audience the representative of the country.

The two winners may not be the same, as happened last year when the winner of Festivali i Këngës was Elsa Lila, while the representatives of the country were Albina & Familja Kelmendi.

More announcements regarding the competition

The running order has been decided for the first two nights of this year’s FiK. Moreover, it was mentioned that on the third night, the “big” artists will perform with singers who no longer participate, while the “new” artists will sing in a duet, a song from Eurovision.

Then, the finalists will be announced after the end of the third night.

Albania was represented in Liverpool by Albina & Familja Kelmendi with their song “Duje“. Albania managed to return to the Grand Final, finishing 10th in the public voting and 22nd overall.
