We got the finalists! Who’s going to win the HURTS opening act competition?

Baltic voting has ended and we have four finalists who will compete further for “Hurts” sympathy and the possibility of opening for the world famous artist’s Baltic tour. The finalists are Lithuanian most unusual duet “Beissou & Einius”, Estonian electro pop band “I Wear * Experiments” as well as Latvian Electronic trio “Bandmaster” and Lithuanian “Freaks On Floor”, who shared the same number of votes.

Although originally it was planned to have only three finalists, it was not easy for music experts to decide between so many great artists, therefore it was unanimously decided to give a chance to four of them. The final decision belongs to Hurts, who promised to examine their favorite within few days!

Baltijas balsojums ir noslēdzies un mums ir zināmi 4 finālisti, kuri tālāk cīnīsies par Hurts simpātiju un  iespēju iesildīt pasaules slavenos māksliniekus Baltijas tūrē. Starp finālistiem ir Lietuviešu neparastākais duets “Beissou&Einius”, Igauņu elektro pop grupa “I Wear* Experiments”, kā arī Latviešu elektroniskais trio “Bandmasters” un Lietuviešu “Freaks on Floor”, kuri dalīja vienādu balsu skaitu. Lai gan sākotnēji bija ieplānoti trīs finālisti arī mūzikas ekspertiem nebija viegli izšķirties starp tik daudz lieliskiem māksliniekiem un tika nolemts par 4 finālistiem. Tagad vien atliek gaidīt gala lēmumu no pašiem Hurts, kuri solījās izvērtēt savu favorītu pāris dienu laikā!
