After five participants each sang two potential Eurovision entries, the elimination was delayed because of suspicion of irregular votes in the televote.
Today, the national broadcaster of Lithuania LRT confirmed that this was indeed the case.
While the initial televote result gave Martynas Kavaliauskas 1332 votes, it was found that 677 were invalid, moving him from second to last place.
The following is the final televote and jury result:
- Mia 1355 – 12
- Vilija Matačiūnaitė 1302 – 10
- Vaidas Baumila 1113 – 8
- Monika Linkytė 1079 – 7
- Martynas Kavaliauskas 655 – 6
This means Martynas is eliminated from the competition. The remaining four move on to the next heat on Saturday, February 15.
