In 2017, Lithuania chose previous Eurovision contestant Donny Montell to represent them in Stockholm with the song “I’ve Been Waiting For This Night” who gave Lithuania their 2nd best result ever finishing 9th in the Grand Final with 200 points. Donny has previously stated that he will keep on trying with Eurovision until he wins the show, so we hope we see him return sometime soon.
The broadcaster are asking for submissions only from Lithuanian citizens or foreigners who have a permit of permanent residence in the country, and they are looking at this stage for both artists and authors. A full list of the programme itinerary of the national final process has also been released and can be seen here.
