SOFIA, BULGARIA – One more update roundup for the Junior Eurovision Song Contest comes this Sunday by oikotimes.com. Last night Malta decided its artist for Bulgaria (the song will be decided later on). There are strong rumours about the hosts and intervals of the Junior Eurovision 2015 and more happy news from the wonderful world of JESC.
- Destiny Chukunyere was selected last night by the audience and the jury as the 2015 Junior Eurovision representative for Malta, among 20 participants. The participants performed international hits as the JESC 2015 song will be decided and selected later on.
- While Ukraine confirmed participation the number of confirmed participating countries reach number 10: Ireland, The Netherlands, Belarus, Ukraine, Armenia, Georgia, Bulgaria, Italy, Malta, Albania. We expect Russia and Serbia to confirm soon, especially as Serbian entrant seems to have chosen. Marija Serdar, 13 years old girl from Belgrade sang Bojana Stamenov’s Eurovision entry in show Pinkove zvezdice, a show which she won. It seems she will be the next Serbian entrant. We also await information from Kosovo and Germany. Cyprus and Sweden for the moment are considered withdrawn while San Marino remains silent.
- The Netherlands are gearing up for the Junior Songfestival through which they will decide the song and artist for Sofia. There will be two semifinals on 19 and 26 of September, while the national final is set for October 3rd. Tickets for the live shows are available here: JuniorSongfestival2015.wetickets.nl
Bulgarian broadcaster unite for the national selection again this year. After a successful decision last year when Krisia brought the 2nd place for Bulgaria and ultimately the hosting of the event, BNT, bTV and Seven-Eight Production will decide again the representative for JESC 2015. The process will last until July 23rd and then a professional jury will decide the finalists from the recordings of the Slavi Show. Then a live show will take place and the viewers will decide the winner.
- Vampire Diaries star Nina Dobrev seems to have been rumoured for the hosting of Junior Eurovision 2015. On the other side there are already rumours about Philip Kirkorov but there are no official reactions about it.
