While most acts at Eurovision 2016 are in their 20s and 30s, four acts are still representing the teenage dream. 2015 showed us that teens were capable of delivering good results, with 19-year-old Loïc Nottet and 16-year-old Nadav Guedj placing fourth and ninth respectively. But can this year’s teens also deliver? Listen to all of them below and then vote in our poll. Who is your favourite?
Austria: Zoë – 19
Zoë has been performing since she was a child, and competed in the Austrian kids’ talent show Kiddy Contest at the age of 10. This year she won the Austrian national final with “Loin d’ici” after previously competing with “Quel filou” in 2015.
Belgium: Laura Tesoro – 19
Laura has been acting on Belgium television and in musicals since she was a young teenager, and competed on The Voice of Flanders in 2014, aged 17. She then won the Belgium national final with her song “What’s the Pressure”.
Germany: Jamie-Lee Kriewitz – 18
Last year, at the age of 17, Jamie-Lee won The Voice of Germany with “Ghost” as her winner’s single. She later went on to win the German national final with the same song, ensuring her manga-loving style would be coming to Stockholm.
Sweden: Frans – 17
The youngest competitor at Eurovision 2016, Frans Jeppsson Wall made his start in Sweden at the age of seven on “Who’s da Man”, the novelty ode to Swedish football hero Zlatan Ibrahimovic. Frans then relaunched his teen pop career with “If I Were Sorry”, which went on to win Sweden’s Melodifestivalen.
