He mentioned the representative of Lithuania Donatas Montvydas as one of the favorites.
“I saw the performance of your representative, and as a person he is very similar to the guys from Back Street Boys. But seriously Donatas Montvydas sings very purely in tune, and I’m really looking forward to his performance on the “Eurovision” stage. I also like that he sings alone, without dancers.
