After winning the ticket to represent Kazakhstan at the 2020 Junior Eurovision Song Contest, Karakat Bashanova has now released the official music video for her entry ‘Forever’.
The powerful and emotional music video of ‘Forever’ sees Karakat signing along, as we see flashbacks of Fathers in dangerous professions, in the viewpoint of the children, where their father did not return.
Kazakhstan’s third participation at the Junior Eurovision Song Contest
Karakat Bashanova will have the honour of being Kazakhstan’s third representative for the Junior Eurovision Song Contest. Her entry ‘Forever’ was written by Khamit Shangaliyev, who composed Kazakhstan’s Junior Eurovision entry in 2019 ‘Armanyńnan Qalma’, which placed 2nd overall.
Kazakhstan in the Junior Eurovision Song Contest
Upon special invitation, Kazakhstan debuted at the 2018 Junior Eurovision Song Contest in Minsk, Belarus, with the song “Òzińe Sen” by Daneliya Tuleshova, who placed 6th out of 20 with 171 points. Daneliya recently was on the talent program America’s Got Talent, where she reached the finale.
In 2019, Kazakhstan was invited back to compete in JESC in Gliwice, Poland. They sent Yerzhan Maksim with the song “Armanyńnan Qalma,” which placed 2nd overall with 227 points, winning the jury vote in the process.
