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 12th on the afternoon of the Junior Eurovision Song Contest final will be Gianluca Cilia from Malta. Gianluca will be performing Dawra Tond, written by Emil Calleja Bayliss and composed by Dominic Cini.
Gianluca and his five female dancers bring fun, fun and more fun to the stage here at Tbilisi’s Olympic Palace. The staging has an orange theme, which continues into the outfits of the six young Maltese performers.
