Eurovision Song Contest 2016: Lithuania – “I’ve Been Waiting for This Night” By Donny Montell

donatas-montvydas-70681124Eurovision 2016 is almost upon us and as the countries begin to reveal their entries let’s start giving them the once-over. 

As I will be attending the grand final this year it’s even more super exciting for me!

The Lithuania song is called “I’ve Been Waiting for This Night” and is performed by Donny Montell.

ARTIST

Donny Montell (Donatas Montvydas) is a Lithuanian singer and songwriter from Vilnius. He represented Lithuania at the 2012 Eurovision Song Contest in Azerbaijan. After being part of the Europe’s favourite TV show, the Lithuanian pop artist promised himself to return to the contest one more time.

Montell (28) is a well-known artist in his homeland and successful participant of many TV-projects in Lithuania. He gained popularity after taking part in various prestigious festivals. In 2008, Montell won the Grand Prix prize at the Belorussian festival, Slavianskij Bazar.

Two years later, he scored another victory, winning the show Dance With Me. However, this was just the beginning, as he was taking part in many popular shows and contests together with a group of professional dancers.

SONG

Written by Jonas Thander and Beatrice Robertsson,

OPINION

Donny could possibly be the Lithuanian Justin Bieber and this is a sure fire power pop song packed full of energy. However, for me it didn’t really get going despite an anticipated build up.

PREDICTION

I can see this qualifying as the final would be a sadder place without Donny but I really don’t think it will trouble the top ten of the leader board.

LYRICS

“Here we are together you and I (I)
Watching lights around us fill the night (night)

I was living in the dark
Tried to heal my broken heart
Until now
Cause here we are together you and I (I)

For a thousand years through a million tears
With a hungry heart, every day apart
I’ve been waiting for this night, I’ve been waiting for this night

When I see your smile and your beautiful eyes
I get lost in time, now I know that I’ve
I’ve been waiting for this night, I’ve been waiting for this night

If only I could stay here by your side (side)
To promise you forever here tonight (night)

There is nothing I can do
That can take my heart from you
Always yours
If only I could stay here by your side (side)

For a thousand years through a million tears
With a hungry heart, every day apart
I’ve been waiting for this night, I’ve been waiting for this night

When I see your smile and your beautiful eyes
I get lost in time, now I know that I’ve
I’ve been waiting for this night, I’ve been waiting for this night

Aaaaaaaa aaaaaaaa aaaaaaaaa aaaaaaaaa

For a thousand years and a million tears
With a hungry heart, every day apart
I’ve been waiting for this night, I’ve been waiting for this night

When I see your smile and your beautiful eyes
I get lost in time, now I know that I’ve
I’ve been waiting for this night, I’ve been waiting for this night

Here we are together you and I”

Good luck Donny!
