Preparations for Junior Eurovision 2015 are in full swing. Countries from Slovenia to the Netherlands are preparing for their national final, while TV execs elsewhere are finalising the details of who will sing for them in Sofia. Thus far four countries have given us both the singer and the song.
Albania picked their act earlier this May, while Belarus and Ukraine waited until late August to stage their selections. On Friday it was Russia’s turn, which resulted in Mikhail Smirnov being chosen with the dreamy ballad “Mechta”.
It’s far too early to determine the fan favourite, but who of the four stands the best chance so far? Mishela Rapo’s “Dambaje” is reggae-inspired, but still serves some Disney realness. Ruslan Aslanov knows how to work magic on stage. Our latest poll winner, Anna Trincher, combines angelic staging and rock-esque vocals perfectly. And Misha Smirnov — the newbie to the group — celebrates music and love with “Mechta”.
Below you can listen to all of the acts chosen so far. Then vote for your favourite(s) in the poll. You can vote for as many acts as you’d like, but you can vote only ONE TIME, so make it count. The poll closes October 3 at midnight.
