Representing Lithuania is Vilija Matačiūnaitė with Attention
Vilija’s singing career began in 2004, when she was runner up in the international singing competition Amber Star in Latvia.
I hope you will hear my music, understand the lyrics, get the message and share this one thing: LOVEVilija
A year later, she decided to participate in one of the most successful Lithuanian TV reality singing competitions, The Way To The Stars. Again, she took second place and soon after her career catapulted. She became a radio host on the station Lietus as well as releasing a debut album, which is about to become platinum.
Vilija wrote the lyrics to her Eurovision track whilst living in London. At first, she composed it as a reggae song, but after meeting the young Lithuanian music composer Viktoras Vaupšas, the arrangement changed completely to embrace a more contemporary sound.
