This evening the first show of  Eurovizijos 2018, Lithuania’s national selection for the upcoming Eurovision Song Contest was broadcast by LRT.  Ugnė Skonsmanaitė and Mantas Stonkus were the two hosts of the event.

 A group of 13 contestants from a total number of  50 participated in this evening’s show.

The result was determined by a combination of jury and public voting having  50% share each. The jury’s vote had already been cast as the show today wasn’t aired live and the public vote was added today after all songs were shown on screen. Therefore, only six acts qualified to the next round :
