After several long months of casting, semi-finals, and the creation of several supercute music videos, the Junior Songfestival has finally come to an end.

Julia’s Journey To Victory
She first wowed us with her jazzy voice back in June, when she earned a spot in the semi-finals. Over the summer, however, her song went through major metamorphosis and emerged as a fun, upbeat club number.
