Over the coming days and weeks the team at That Eurovision Site will be taking a more in depth look at this year’s Eurovision entries. We will take you through using the running order so the first entry we will be looking at is Discoteque which will be sung by The Roop. If you are wanting a general gist of how we feel about the song then take a look at this video below:
History of The Roop
Lithuania group, The Roop were formed back in 2014 consisting of members Vaidotas Valiukevičius, Robertas Baranauskas and Mantas Banišauskas. The Roop have attempted to represent Lithuania twice before in 2018 with ‘Yes I Do’ and in 2020 with ‘On Fire’. The Roop actually won the national selection back in 2020 and were massive fave favourites to win the Eurovision Song Contest prior to the cancellation due to the Covid-19 pandemic. This year they will represent their country with Discoteque. Lithuania will open the contest performing first in the first semi final.
Our takes and predictions for ‘Discoteque’
Our team will now go over what we make of Discoteque, where we rank it overall and how well we think it will do at Eurovision.
Opinion: I really loved this when it first came out, however I am now a bit bored of this. I think my main issues with the song come from the fact I have over listened to it. ‘Discoteque’ is in no way a bad song and I do still think it will do very well for Lithuania.
Overall Placing: 16th
Prediction: Easy Qualifier, probably top 3 in the semi final, then Top 10 in the final.
Opinion: “Discoteque” is one of those songs that when it comes on, I absolutely adore. However, if I was to listen to it excessively, it would start to grate on me. With that being said, I think this is a fantastic entry for Lithuania – a country that really is riding on a high after last year’s hype with “On Fire”. Live vocals could potentially put this at a disadvantage, but I think this could blow everyone out of the competition when it comes to rehearsals – beware of The Roop!
Overall Placing: 8th
Prediction: 1st-4th in the semi-final. Top 10 – specifically 5th-8th in the final.
Opinion: It’s been an absolute joy to see Lithuania completely behind The Roop this year, and with good reason! Their charisma, charm and quirkiness are perfect for Discoteque, a song about self-discovery and making peace with the person you are, which fits these times that we are living in perfectly. I love the instrumental and the way the song builds, and Vaidotas has a unique voice and style that I can see resonating with the viewers at home. I hope this does very, very well for them.
Overall Placing: 6th
Prediction: Top 10 in the final.
