Valerija, how did you feel when you heard that you had the honour to sing with the Eurovision winner Alexander Rybak?
It felt unreal, I don’t even know how to describe the feeling. First at all, I did not believe it. I thought that this was just a joke on me. The joyful news was reported to me by the Voice of Lithuania vocal teacher Rosita Čivilytė. Then I started to jump about my luck. I felt I was between reality and space, I started to repeat continuously: “O God, O God, O God! Seriously? No kidding? Seriously? ”
Then throughout the rest of the day I was floating on a cloud, I was very happy. However, eventually I realized that the fact I have worked and fought for my dreams for so long was not in vain . There were many difficult moments, and sometimes I wanted to just give up and quit everything. Definitely everything I did my way has not always turned out rosy. Often I felt a lack of support for me, I had a very big downs … And the recognition I got in the Voice of Lithuanian is just proof that if you want, you can do anything. You need just work and show determination to achieve your goal.

The winner of “Eurovision” in 2009 Alexander Rybak who will come to perform at the final show of the “Voice of Lithuania” during Easter, said in an exclusive interview to DELFI that he is very interested in the contestants of this year and their songs. 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. Watching such a performance you hear the music instead of seeing some men showing off behind the performers. However during my performance there were dancers too, but it was just decided like that, I would be happy to sing without them as well. I hope to meet D. Montvydas on “Eurovision”, but not because he needs my advice, but just to shake the hand of this great guy for everything he does, “- said Alexander Rybak to DELFI .
