Shower and Pluie de Comètes are the newest additions to Lithuania's Eurovizija.LT 2024 Final lineup. Two more heats remain

We're halfway through Lithuania's hunt for their next Eurovision 2024 representative as the third heat of Eurovizija.LT has just been aired with the qualification of two more acts for the Final.

This heat was pre-recorded in LRT's studios on 17 January. This week's jury panel featured singer Ieva Narkutė, LRT presenters Gerūta Griniūtė and Kristupas Naraškevičius, composer and producer Vytautas Bikus, and musician Jievaras Jasinskis.

While the jury members provided their input on the spot, the televote was also called on to act tonight. Both sides were worth 50% of the decision.
