Ten year old Paulina comes from the coastal town of Palanga, a very busy summer resort in Lithuania. Her song has been written by Paulina along with Mindaugas Lapinskis, and was first performed at the festival „Ilgosios pertraukos” (Long break) on September 1st in Paulina’s hometown of Palanga. During her performance, Paulina is backed by members of the group “Ups” (who participated in last year’s Junior Eurovision preselection) and a pianist.

Despite not winning the national selection’s televoting, which was won by Milita Daikerytė whom had around 5.5 times more votes than the winner, Paulina was the favourite of the jury in both the main round and superfinal. The jury was made up of Jonas Vilimas, Asta Einikytė, Eglė Nepaitė, Donatas Montvydas, Artūras Novikas, Edmundas Seilius and Kristina Zmailaitė.
