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 15th on the afternoon of the Junior Eurovision Song Contest final will be Isabella Clarke from Australia. Speak Up! was written and composed by Joost Griffioen and Stas Swaczyna.
Isabella is a powerhouse of a performer. She is accompanied by 3 dancers, whom she shares an incredible connection and chemistry with, this chemistry leading to everyone having the best time they can on stage. She is wearing a sparkly silver jumpsuit (forgive my inability to describe clothes!) and she is certainly embracing this years theme of ‘Shine Bright.’
The dancing is excellent and the vocals are honestly off the chart, and yes I had serious goosebumps in the arena. I wasn’t sure how the dancing would look as part of the live show. Obviously, it’s great for the TV but what I was impressed with the most was that it translated so well into the arena as well! Bring on Sunday!
Vote for Australia!
Online voting is open right now via junioreurovision.tv. Viewers from all over the world can vote for between three and five countries. Voting closes at 3.59pm CET on November 26th, just before the beginning of the live broadcast. Then, voting will reopen during the show for fifteen minutes following the final performance so that any final votes can be cast.
