🇵🇱 Junior Eurovision completely home grown!

The broadcaster responsible for the organisation of the Junior Eurovision Song Contest and with addition, the broadcaster responsible for the Polish entry for their own contest, TVP has revealed that the team that have organised the contest since January contains no foreign members in the organisation committee. Therefore is exclusively made up of Polish talent. The contest will take part in Gliwice-Silesia on this coming Sunday (24th November) A change of plan. In the past 5 editions of the contest, so since 2014, the contest has had some level of foreign involvement among the native teams. This has meant the dismissal of Maltese show director Gordon Bonello, who first directed the contest since 2014 when the contest was hosted in Marsa, Malta. This isn’t the first time the contest, especially the junior variation has had foreign involvement at some level of the organisation and planning. In 2010 and 2011 when many nations did not have High Definition broadcasting capabilities the Swedish broadcaster SVT helped provide technical equipment to allow Belarus and Armenia broadcast the competition on HD.

REVIEW: Ukraine lets the screen do all the work – the ‘ribbons’ are not lit for most of the song making a unique effect. Flashes of light dance around the arena for the chorus and the camera spins around Sophia. There’s a lot of swirling imagery throughout but no central theme for the screens. For the climax Sophia spins as the camera is above showing more swirling imagery on the floor. Sophia is confident on stage, singing well and really feeling the music. And here’s a reminder of what we saw in their first rehearsal: 🇺🇦 DAY 2 REVIEW: A passionate and commanding performance from Ukraine’s Sophia …

REVIEW: We have a city park theme here and the performance centres around a park bench. The screen moves between a moving city scene and a tree filled park scene. As you’d expect lots of choreography from Matheu and the guys with him. It’s energetic, fun and youthful with bright lights and a rainbow of colours flowing around the arena. It seems for the final Matheu will be encouraging the audience to sing and dance along. And here’s a reminder of what we saw in their first rehearsal: 🇳🇱 DAY 2 REVIEW: Fun in the park for Matheu and The Netherlands Votes can be cast via vote.junioreurovision.tv. Viewers from …

REVIEW: The song starts with an intimate moment as Melani is sat down on her podium with the audience behind her. She raises and turns to perform the rest of the song on the podium. The sea themes of the song and music video carry over to the staging. Fishing nets with plastic hang down across the stage and there’s an ocean backdrop. Outstanding vocals from Melani as ever. This is a really great presentation from Spain which will hopefully carry the eco message it wants to send to the viewers at home. And here’s a reminder of what we saw in their first rehearsal: 🇪🇸 DAY 2 REVIEW: Spain’s …

REVIEW: It’s a dramatic start with red flooding the stage. Darija performs with passion to the camera. A stormy scene forms with rain over landscape. Then with green accents we see a flower, a tree forming on a hilltop and mountains growing behind. Famous landmarks popup in a moving landscape. In line with the message of the song there is a lot of imagery of nature and the world we need to protect. For the last part with a special effect Daija catches a planet Earth and “We don’t have a planet B” appears on screen. And here’s a reminder of what we saw in their …

REVIEW: You certainly won’t miss the theme of the song! Hearts are everywhere and the title ‘Hearts Beating’ is shown on screen during the chorus. The ‘ribbons’ on the stage act like veins with red lights rushing through them. Four colourful dancers join her on stage leading to the Welsh clogging moment. Erin raises pink ‘wings’ from her dress with hearts on it and we get a close shot of the traditional clog dance.
