November 16: EBU arranges Opening Reception for tomorrow
SOFIA, BULGARIA – The opening ceremony of Junior Eurovision 2015 will be held tomorrow (November, 17h) at 20:45 local time and will be broadcasted live by BNT1 and junioreruovision.tv.
As we have already announced, the so called “Red carpet” ceremony was postponed due to the tragic events in Paris last week. Despite the two days delay from the initial schedule, now the 17 participants are set to shine like big stars. They will be welcomed by the Director-General of BNT Viara Ankova and the Junior Eurovision Song Contest executive supervisor Vladislav Yakovlev. They will be joined by Yordanka Fandakova – the mayor of Sofia.
Yoanna Dragneva will be the host of the opening ceremony. The popular singer who represented Bulgaria at Eurovision back in 2008 will challenge the contestants with different questions. An attractive 3D mapping show will appear on the building of National Palace of Culture. It will show the flags of the participating countries animated on the base of this year’s logo. Vincenzo Cantiello and Krisia, Hasan and Ibrahim will also appear on the red carpet.
The show will be opened by authentic folklore compositions. The host of this year’s Junior Eurovision Song Contest Poli Genova will be also appearing on the stage accompanied by 24 children from the current formation of “Bon-Bon”. In the closing minutes of the show Krisia will perform the anthem of Junior Eurovision 2015 – “#Discover” with an amazing fiery show as a background.
