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 6th on the afternoon of the Junior Eurovision Song Contest final will be Mariana Venâncio from Portugal. Mariana will perform Youtuber, written and composed by João Cabrita and Mariana Andrade.
Mariana’s performance is arguably the most colourful of this year’s final, with the emoji-filled backdrop being one of this year’s most unique screen productions. 11-year-old Mariana adds immense charm to her performance of Youtuber which is guaranteed to be stuck in your head after the first chorus.
Portugal have taken a long time away from the Junior Eurovision Song Contest but RTP were undoubtedly buoyed by Salvador Sobral’s historic win in Kyiv earlier this year and launched their comeback as a result. Could Mariana make this an even more historic year for Portugal at Eurovision?
