Vilija Matačiūnaitė (27) emerged as a winner in the longest selection process in Lithuania with Attention, a song she co-wrote. The selection started before Christmas and finished in March. 30 artists became 3: Mia, Vaidas Baumila and Vilija Matačiūnaitė. At some point 16 songs came along, sung by remaining artists over and over again while both singers and songs were dropped out. The winner is a compromise of many things,
Robert: Lithuania had the longest selection this year. But where it took weeks to find the right singer, The song had an inferior importance because it was only presented in the last episode of the Lithuanian selection. Lithuania made the classical mistake to focus too much on finding the best singer and too little to find the best song. The song Attention was obviously chosen with little attention. There is something really irritating about the song. The three remaining great singers had to struggle through it before a winner was chosen. The version of the only male left in the competition however, Vaidas Baumila, had my preference of the three.
Blogilkar: Not much to add here to what Robert said. One song, three different versions and arrangements in the final. I also preferred the version by Vaidas over Vilija's.
