Lithuania's representative at Eurovision says that performing after Israel has left him "traumatized"

Israel's participation has brought a lot of queue at Eurovision. The Eurofans, despite the organization's warnings, expressed their resounding rejection of Eden Golan, an Israeli representative, who did not seem to be very affected. These boos had more impact on Silvester Belt, the representative of Lithuania.

The young Lithuanian singer performed right after Israel and, as he has acknowledged on social media, he was quite impacted by the hostile atmosphere of the public. Although it was not against him, he was not at all comfortable on stage.

Belt has not hesitated to express his sadness in best I could in this situation..." Finally, the Lithuanian representative finished in 14th place with 90 points.

This "traumatic experience", as Belt has described it, has ended with the Lithuanian wanting to erase his time in Eurovision due to the bad taste in his mouth that he has had from this experience: "I wish it had all ended in the first semi-final"

Initially, Belt should not have acted after Israel, but after the Netherlands. However, Joost Klein was disqualified for having a clash with a festival production worker.

Thus, this expulsion meant that the Lithuanian artist had to act after Golan and go through a moment, according to his experience, that was truly distressing. This confession has caused numerous Eurofans to send him words of affection and support. Another, however, has also been reminded that the Israeli representative had a worse time.
