What do you think of the three Baltic states? They had their fair share of success and failure, with those two things seemingly concentrated in some areas more than others.
We know that Estonia has won, and Latvia has won. Lithuania is still waiting, despite some gallant attempts through the years. One that had a very good try was co-sung by today's birthday girl Monika Linkytė. She had her pal Vaidas Baumila and they had a progressive act on stage, that may (or may not) have won them some extra votes. The song was enough, but there are always to squeeze out those extra votes. If you watch, you'll understand why. Mokina and her friends didn't get any sets of 12 points but maybe, just maybe, made the Contest an even more tolerant place.
Monika is 28 today.
Su gimtadieniu, Monika!
