Favourites through in Lithuanian Semi Final

Aistė Pilvelytė

Lithuanian TV has moved on a stage in its 2020 Eurovision Song Contest selection process. It’s time for the semifinals, with viewers and a jury voting on the 18 songs that qualified from the first phase.

In a strange, some might say planned and fixed, draw – the two so-called favourites – The ROOP and Aistė Pilvelytė found themselves performing in the same nine-song heat. As expected, both qualified, but as you can see from the results below, the televote wasn’t even close and the jury broke the tie, awarding Aistė first place.

Will this happen again in two weeks?
