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 16th and last on the afternoon of the Junior Eurovision Song Contest final will be Maria Iside Fiore from Italy. Maria will be performing Scelgo (My Choice) which she co-wrote with Stefano Rigamonti and Fabrizio Palaferri. Stefano also composed the song alongside Marco lardella.
Maria closes the Junior Eurovision final with Scelgo, an empowering and inspiring anthem. The Italian delegation have chosen to project words onto their backdrop which re-enforces the empowering lyrics of the song.
Scelgo also includes a key change into the English-language final part of the song. This is effective in creating a climactic finish to the performance and Maria delivers it really well. We also see images of Maria on the backdrop as she tells us her story.
