The list of Lithuanian acts includes some familiar faces and new ones as we can find many former participants of Eurovizijos. It’s also interesting to find two former Eurovision representatives, Sasha Song (2009) and Vilija Matačiūnaitė (2014), who will be trying to represent their homeland again.

Eurovizijos 2017 will follow the same procedure of the last year’s edition, with special shows for artists with own songs and artists singing original compositions submitted by composers. All the episodes will be hosted by Ievai Stasiulevičiūtei and Gabrielei Martirosianaitei. The winner will be selected by a mix of jury decision and audience vote as well as the qualifiers from each show. You can find the full selection procedure and different stages by clicking here.
