Lithuania: Lineup for Eurovizija.LT unveiled

The 40 artists competing at the first edition of Lithuania's new Eurovizija.LT have been revealed. The acts will be divided into five heats, and the winner declared on 17 February

Just a few weeks ago, Lithuania's broadcaster for Eurovision (LRT) announced changes to their national selection process for the contest and announced a brand-new televised show, "Eurovizija.LT."

Despite its new name, the format seems quite similar to the previous "Pabandom iš naujo." And to prove that point five shows are scheduled to take place, making it (once again) one of the longest national selections processes for Eurovision.

Three former Eurovision participants

17 of the 40 participants in Eurovizija.LT 2024 have competed in Lithuanian national selections for Eurovision in the past. Three of them are former Eurovision representatives:
