Who’s your favourite duo? Is it one that won? Is it one that had two performers yelling at each other whilst stood close together? Or is it one of those duos that tried their best, but failed to make the Grand Final?
Today’s birthday boy Linas Adomaitis paired up with Simona Jakubėnaitė in 2004, in the very first semi-final to be held in the same city as the Grand Final. It was going to be a tough ask, with 22 songs competing for 10 spots, and Linas & Simona didn’t quite make it. They did get votes from a clutch of countries. On the plus side, of the three options above, they probably fell within the third one.
Linas is 45 today.
Su gimtadieniu, Linai!
