Pabandom iš naujo 2022

Pabandom iš naujo 2022 will have six shows: Three Heats, two Semi-finals and a Final. The first Heat takes place on 8 January 2022 at 20:00 CET.

The results of all the shows will be decided by 50/50 jury/televoting.

Audrius Giržadas, Chief Producer at LRT, says:

– It is good to remember how Lithuanians unanimously supported the band The Roop in Rotterdam: the yellow wave swept across Europe! And again, we have very different artists and songs, but they are united by the belief that it is this song that can represent our country.

– This year, for the first time, LRT has provided financial support to all performers, which they can use to prepare, as the public broadcaster wants to give the rehearsal stage a chance to everyone who deserves it. Whether it’s just starting their musical journey or is a well-known performer.

Lithuania in Eurovision Song Contest

Lithuania has been taking part of Eurovision Song Contest 21 times since its debut in 1994.
