Lithuania has sent four entries to the Junior Eurovision Song Contest, first entering at the 2007 Contest in Rotterdam.

The national selection process occurs during the show Mažųjų žvaigždžių ringas (Young Stars Ring), in which young singers aged 10–15 will take part with self-written songs.

The 2007 Lithuanian entry was Lina Jurevičiūtė, a.k.a. Lina Joy, with the song “Kai miestas snaudžia”, who finished 13th in the contest.

The 2008 entry was Eglė Jurgaitytė with “Laiminga diena”, which ended third for Lithuania at the 2008 Contest in Limassol.

After two years of participating LRT withdrew due the financial reasons at the festival in 2009. But they returned in 2010.[1] That year LRT sent Bartas with the song “Oki Doki”. It placed 6th out of 14 participants.

They also participated in 2011 and sent Paulina Skrabytė with the song “Debesys” which placed 10th.

In 2012, the country withdrew again due to expenses. Lithuania has not returned to the contest since.
