The prime minister published the invitation on Twitter after the famous Izraeli model said she has Lithuanian roots, calling them her "better half."

"#Eurovision2019: @BarRefaeli thank you for your kind words. I invite you and your husband to visit Lithuania and to see that your "better half" is really worth 12 points. Lithuania is waiting for everyone to come back to their ancestral land," the prime minister tweeted.

Rafaeli mentioned her Lithuanian roots during the Eurovision's second semi-final on Thursday after the performance of Lithuania's representative Jurij Veklenko.

Unfortunately, Veklenko failed to get into the song contest's final with his song "Run With The Lions".
