The Lithuanians chose to have a three semi-finals before the national final. Evelina won the ticket to Düsseldorf wearing the oddest collection of garments; some sort of black dress, a collection of golden hydrangeas on her right shoulder, a green curtain with a collection of random sunflowers.
Between February and May, Evelina squeezed herself into a decent dress, learned some sign language, and had her hair done. It made a distinct difference to the presentation. The song itself is wonderful and simple. This song was pitched at an adult audience, and has the elements of the theater. While many others had fireworks and dancers, Evelina had dry ice. I can say it is the one song that had me on the edge of my seat and hold my breath.
