THIS TIME – A FIRE WORKS COMPETITION

Sony South Africa has made available the brand new CD of the group 4werke (fireworkers) called 4WARM as a price in a competition. 4werke consists of 4 South African singers, all R O W members – Elizma Theron, Liezel Pieters, Nicholis Louw and Ray Dylan.

The CD has 14 tracks but one of them is a Eurovision cover – Lithuania 2015 – THIS TIME, originally sung by Monika Linkyte and Vaidas Baumila. 4werke covers the song in English since we were unable to contact the composers to get permission for the Afrikaans lyrics.

In order to win this CD, you will have to do a comment to this post about your favourite Lithuanian Eurovision entry and why you like that particular song. Sony will decide who is the winner.

After several weeks of selection shows Lithuania have finally decided on the winning combination to send to Vienna. They have chosen a duet between Monika Linkytė and Vaidas Baumila. Together they will sing the chosen song This Time.

The international and national jury and televoting decided tonight’s result. The three finalists performed songs that they chose themselves –

  • MiaDangerous
  • Monika Linkytė & Vaidas Baumila – Saulės Pėdomis
  • Mia Take A Look At Me Now
  • Monika Linkytė & Vaidas Baumil Tiktai Tu

The writer of This Time, as well as many fans, liked the idea of Monika and Vaidas performing as a duet.

Then Mia and Monika & Vaidas (as a duet) performed This Time.

The interval act included the Swiss Eurovision representative, Mélanie René, performing her song Time To Shine.

So it will be Monika Linkytė and Vaidas Baumila who will fly the Lithuanian flag in Austria with This Time.
