ESC 2016 LITHUANIA: 28 NAMES FOR THE MARATHON SELECTION....

Lithuanian television has announced the names for the national selection for the Eurovision song contest 2016. A total of 28 artists or acts will go through the weekly eliminations of artists/acts and songs and after 8 weeks we will have a matching pair as a winner, or so we all hope!
Among the participants we have two previous entrants Donny Montell (or Donatas Montvydas) and Erika Jennings who got style back in 2001. Aistė Pilvelytė is back for the 8th time at least and has been the runner up twice, will she finally make it? And then we have Ruslanas Kirilkinas back. He has been also to the Finnish Idols and caused a minor scandal when his gay sex porn pics from early 2000's made the tabloids when he made a name in music business..... And then we have some other familiar names like 4 Roses.
