LIVE Interview with The Roop (Lithuania 2021): Radio International - The Ultimate Eurovision Experience is very happy to welcome to the show The Roop who represented Lithuania at the Eurovision Song Contest 2021 with the song "Discotheque". The Roop successfully qualified Lithuania for the Grand Final of the Eurovision Song Contest 2021 and ranked 8th at the end of the voting sequence. The Roop won their National Final already in 2020 with the song "On Fire" which became a big fan favourite and ranked very high in the fan polls of 2020. In 2021, the Roop entered again the national final in Lithuania and won again with "Discotheque".  JP met and interviewed the Roop (lead vocalist Vaidotas Valiukevičius, percussionist Robertas Baranauskas and guitarist Mantas Banišauskas) at the recent edition of the Eurovision Club Germany's Annual convention 2021 in Cologne, Germany on 20 Nov 2021. Enjoy this interview with the group you can hear on this week's edition of Radio International.
