Voting is now open for the 2017 Junior Eurovision Song Contest. Yes, for the first time ever, fans from all over the world can cast their votes right now before the live show has begun. But who should you vote for? To decide, let us take you through a recap of this year’s sixteen contenders following their rehearsals.
Performing 10th on the afternoon of the Junior Eurovision Song Contest final will be Ana Kodra from Albania. Her song Don’t Touch My Tree is written by Jorgo Papingji and composed by Kristi Popa.
Ana performs alone on stage with a stunning tree backdrop that changes throughout the song. Early in the song, the tree is in the middle of the storm but by the end, Ana’s message succeeds and the tree is surrounded by calmness.
The young Albanian performer has a wonderful tone to her voice which comes across effortlessly. Ana completely connects with her song with her visibly emotional as she sings the lyrics.
