The search for Ireland’s debut Junior Eurovision act is finally up and running. The first heat was broadcast on TG4 earlier tonight with David Kennedy advancing to the 8 November grand final.
Over the course of the hour long show, eight talented young singers performed two minutes of their songs before a judging panel made up of Niamh Kavanagh, Brian Kennedy and Stiofán Ó Fearail. David Kennedy and Lisa-Rose McMahon emerged as the panel’s favourites. The jury decided to send David to the final with his song “Fuar” (Cold).
Congratulations David! Do you agree with the result? Does “Fuar” have what it takes to represent Ireland in Sofia? And what do y’all think of TG4’s Eurovision efforts? Should RTÉ be taking notes? Comment below.
