The band that won the national selection in 2020 with the song “On Fire” and should have represented Lithuania at Eurovision 2020 . Due to the band winning in Pabandom iš naujo 2020 and the cancellation of Eurovision 2020, the broadcaster decided to give them a direct path for the final.
The singer represented Lithuania at Eurovision 2011 with the song “C’est Ma Vie“. She ended in 19th place in the grand final.
The singer represented the country at Eurovision 2014 with the song “Attention“. Unfortunately, she didn’t qualify for the final.
