10 April – We did it for the first time along the wavy sea shoreline

Yesterday we had a country with one win under their belt. Now today we have a country with a record that’s been a little more patchy since day one. And no wins to their name.

Our friends in Lithuania haven’t had the success of its Baltic neighbours. A big fat zero on the first attempt. And apart from three top 10 finishes, it’s been a bit nondescript. In 2004 – yes, 20 years ago – we saw the start of semi-finals, and today’s birthday boy Linas Adomaitis did his stuff for his country with Simona Jakubėnaitė. They finished 16th in the semi so had an early bath. Maybe it was because L&S were sandwiched between the songs that eventually finished first and seventh. Or maybe it was the snazzy white suit Linas wore.

Linas is 48 today.

Laimingas gimtadienis, Linas!
