Lithuania’s Eurovision Journey
The Baltic nation made its debut at the Eurovision Song contest in 1994, where Ovidijus Vyšniauskas represented them with the song “Lopšinė mylimai”, which placed 25th. Since then, Lithuania has participated 21 times and made the Grand Final 14 times. LT United gave Lithuania their best ever Eurovision result back in 2006, when the country placed sixth.
Lithuania’s latest Eurovision participation saw them represented by The Roop, who had been due to represent them at the 2020 Eurovision Song Contest. For 2021, the group participated with “Discoteque” and managed to place eighth overall, with 220 points.
