We continue the National Final Reminder with something from 2016. Today, we will travel to Lithuania.
Lithuania back in 2016 decided its representative through “”Eurovizijos” dainų konkurso nacionalinė atranka”. Six entries competed in the final of the national selection.
The song “United” was one of those 6 entries performed by Rūta Ščiogolevaitė. The song is composed by Rūta Ščiogolevaitė, Michael James Down, Primož Poglajen, Thomas Reil and Jeppe Reil and placed 3rd at the end of the show.
Rūta Ščiogolevaitė was born on June 25, 1981, in Šiauliai, Lithuania. Her first album came out in 1998 and until today she has released three more albums, the most recent one in 2012. She has tried to represent Lithuania a couple of times at the contest: 1999 (first attempt), 2004 (2nd place), 2007 (2nd place), 2009 (4th place), 2011 (3rd place), 2016 (3rd place).
