Ten days ago, on September 19, we asked all you wiwijunior readers to choose your favorite Junior Eurovision 2014 act so far. At that time four countries—Armenia, Belarus, Sweden and Ukraine—had revealed their songs. We received a total of 730 votes, and can now reveal that Ukraine’s trio Sympho-Nick have emerged as your winners!
Your Junior Eurovision 2014 favourites so far
1. Ukraine: Sympho-Nick with “Pryyde Vesna”: 40.96% (299 votes)
2. Belarus: Nadezdha Misyakova with “Sokol”: 21.1% (154 votes)
3. Sweden: Julia Kedhammar with “Du Ar Inte Ensam”: 19.59% (143 votes)
4. Armenia: Betty with “People of the Sun”: 18% (134 votes)
The Ukrainian trio won with more than 40% of all votes. Their song “Pryyde Vesna” discusses their anticipation for spring. And while that hasn’t come yet, their fandom at wiwibloggs IS blossoming. You go, girls! One of our readers recently put out the question if they were winning because our readers felt sorry for Ukraine because of its withdrawal from adult Eurovision. That’s one theory…but we think our readers probably just like their song.
In a tough competition among the rest of the contenders, lovely Nadezdha—the hawk impersonator from Belarus—came second, leaving Sweden’s Julia Kedhammar, who recently sang an acoustic version of her entry, in third place. Armenia, which is adorably putting the Junior in Junior Eurovision name, came last. Were y’all blinded by Betty’s sunshine? We appreciated the rays…
We’ll be launching this week’s poll on Wednesday, October 1. You’ll have one week to vote, and we’ll include six new acts: Cyrpus, Georgia, the Netherlands, Russia, San Marino and Serbia.
