Lithuania | Revamped Version Of 'Run With The Lions' Released On YouTube
Yesterday, there was news from Lithuania and their up and coming Eurovision performance. With this news came the information that the performance itself would not change from the nation final one, that saw Jurijus Veklenko win with his song, "Run With The Lions".
Days before he appears at the Eurovision pre-parties, a new and upgraded version of the song has been placed on YouTube which has suggested that it has had a revamp. The sound of the song does indeed sound better with the backing vocals more prominent, which blend in superbly with Jurijus' voice. Check the song out below:
Earlier in March Jurij, and his team travelled to Switzerland to meet the writers behind the song, and to discuss the composition, and the way it was to be moved forward. He said,
"There was long break through before each recording, we discussed every word of the song... It is important for them (songwriters) how the performer feels.... It is more important for them how you feel as you sing, what can be improved... You can really expect a new sound. We made a new middle part of the song, and it will be much more powerful".

This year's long Lithuanian national final saw several heats take place, that culminated in two semi finals. Jurijus clearly won the televote, and jury vote on his semi final that took place on the 16th February 2019. Once again, when it came to the final he took a commanding lead of the televote securing more than 3000 votes than his nearest rival. The talented singer also managed to win the jury vote too, securing his place as Lithuania's next Eurovision entrant.
The singer will travel to Israel this week, and film his official postcard that will be shown before his performance. He will also appear at many of the Eurovision pre-parties in the hope of increasing his profile internationally.
