REVIEW: Tatyana and Denberel deliver the song well, dressed this time in grey and silver outfits but still with the space theme. The song starts slow with a starry sky and the camera cuts between the two singers. The starry graphics come together to form an earth, then some hands forming a love heart. Flowers also later flow across the screens. Hues of blue and purple are used throughout the performance. And here’s a reminder of what we saw in their first rehearsal: 🇷🇺 DAY 2 REVIEW: Tatyana and Denberel are ready to save the world for Russia Votes can be cast via vote.junioreurovision.tv. Viewers …

REVIEW: With Mila we have a song and staging that wouldn’t look out of place at the adult Eurovision. I’m reminded of how well North Macedonia presented their 2019 Eurovision entry. The song starts with the stage in blue with a crescent moon and dark clouds. Then it moves into an old church with fire swirling from the big clock face on the screen and the floor underneath Mila. This transitions to a mystical woodland ending with a phoenix and flames exploding and filling the screen and stage in orange. And here’s a reminder of what we saw in their first rehearsal: 🇲🇰 DAY 2 REVIEW: First signs of …

REVIEW: Trees grow on the floor screen to begin. Red lighting fills in the arena. The main theme of the staging borrows elements from the music video and overlays a lot of text in the screen. “We say what we believe in”, “They won’t make us give up” and other inspirational messages appear in line with the song’s lyrics. Eliana’s vocals are spot on and she tracks the camera movements really well. And here’s a reminder of what we saw in their first rehearsal: 🇲🇹 DAY 1 REVIEW: Malta’s Eliana brings the vocals to the Gliwice Arena! Votes can be cast via vote.junioreurovision.tv.

REVIEW: Anna is now wearing we can assume the dress for her final performance. Golden lighting and a magical autumnal forest theme is presented here. Leaves are falling and butterflies fly across the screen. The stage bursts into white for the final chorus. Anna stays in one position for the song with lots of arm movements. She seems nervous at first and there’s some work on her connecting with the cameras, but it’s looking like a strong performance. And here’s a reminder of what we saw in their first rehearsal: 🇮🇪 DAY 1 REVIEW: Ireland’s Anna Kearney sings to seasonal spectacle Votes can be cast via vote.junioreurovision.tv.

REVIEW: A plane flies across the screen on a yellow backdrop to begin. A space theme then plays on the screen with planets swirling and stars falling. Later the aeroplane returns releasing love hearts into the sky. Giorgi does really well alone on stage and is vocally confident. All the graphics are really nice but there is not a huge amount that is memorable here in terms of staging. A lot of it comes down to how much you like the song. And here’s a reminder of what we saw in their first rehearsal: 🇬🇪 DAY 1 REVIEW: Giorgi from Georgia shows us his heart Votes can be cast …
