Irish-language broadcaster TG4 has released a promo video for its upcoming Junior Eurovision national selection show and it’s already looking slicker and more exciting than Ireland’s grown-up version.
The promo video shows what viewers can expect from the five shows that were recorded in Dublin earlier this month, as Ireland selects its debut JESC performer. There’s a large studio audience and a full stage – a big step up from RTÉ’s Eurosong show where the competing acts perform in a cramped corner of a talk show set.
The junior national selection looks to be full of fun and – unlike the grown-up version – we’re pretty sure there won’t be any childish bickering. And any show that features Niamh Kavanagh shaking her booty behind the judges’ desk has to be a good thing!
The Irish Junior Eurovision national selection series will begin on 11 October, screening weekly on Sundays.
