Eurovision fans will be very familiair with 3 artists on this list who have competed at Eurovision in the past. Most recently, The Roop, who was one of the big favorites to win in 2020 with their catchy tune “On Fire”. In 2021 they won their national final again, and finished a great 8th place in Rotterdam with the song “Discoteque”, Lithuania’s second best finish since joining the contest in 1994. Before these two wins in Lithuania, they participated with the song “Yes I Do” which finished 3th in the national final of 2018.

In 2014, Vilija sang her song “Attention,” which almost qualified for the grand final. Since then she tried to participate for Lithuania again in 2017 with “I See the lights”, 2021 with “Open” and 2022 with the song “101”. Only in 2022 did she qualify for the semi-final again in which she got eliminated. In 2005 Vilija also failed to win with the song “Oh My God” finishing a good 7th out of 20 in the final.

One year earlier in 2013 Andrius Pojavis won his national selection as debute with the song “something”. In the grand final in Mälmo he finished in 22nd. After 2013, Andrius never participated again, but it seems he wants to proof Malmö that he can do even better!
