In the second episode of Wales’s national selection “Chwilio Am Seren” we saw the final 12 contestants revealed. We are one step closer to finding out who will be the first ever Welsh representative in the Junior Eurovision stage.
From 20 contestants to just 12
In last night’s episode, we saw the three mentors condense the auditonees to just twenty participants. The participants were then placed in a bootcamp to then condense the number of contestants to just 12.
The following participants made it through to last night’s show:
- Gracie Jayne
- Lauren Price
- Emma Kennedy
- Manw Lili Robin
- Misha Parry
- lestyn Gwin Jonrd
- Ella Georgia Tomas
- Lauren Mia Jones
- Amelia Francis
The next stage of the competition will be for the mentors to choose the Top Six contestants for the Grand Final, taking place on Tuesday 9th October in Lladudno, where the public will be able to vote for the first Welsh representative in the Junior Eurovision Song Contest.
Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2018
Belarus’s capital Minsk will be the host of the 2018 edition of Junior Eurovision. This is the second time the event takes place in the city, that previously hosted it in 2010. A record-breaking 20 countries will participate in Minsk on November 25. Wales and Kazakhstan will both make a debut with Kazakhstan participating for the first time to any Eurovision related event. Furthermore, the contest will also feature three returning countries: France, that last participated in 2004, Azerbaijan that last participated in 2013 and Israel that last participated in 2016.
Unfortunately, Cyprus instead confirmed its withdrawal from the competition.
