Lina Kuduzovic – Slovenia’s 2015 JESC representative – is a sweet 11-year-old girl, but y’all – she’s bringing her A-game in the grownups division, delivering a flawless cover of Loreen’s “Euphoria”. Lina may be heading for Sofia, but she clearly has even bigger plans for the future.
This is, hands down, one of the best covers of Loreen’s hit we’ve heard from a young performer. (We’re trying not to remember Rachel’s semi-cover at Junior Eurovision 2012.) Lina doesn’t just do a better job than most JESC singers – she’s giving the grown-ups a run for their money too.
Since Loreen took “Euphoria” to victory in 2012, it’s been a popular song for artists to cover. We’ve heard so many in the past three years – some good, some terrible. Lina’s cover is up there with the best.
After Lina won Slovenia’s Got Talent back in 2010 – beating Maja Keuc who would go on to be Slovenia’s 2011 Eurovision Entry – Lina is set to make her JESC debut in just a few days with “Prva ljubezen”. She’s currently top three in both our readers poll as well as with the Wiwi Jury‘s scores for this year’s edition of the Junior Eurovision Song Contest.
What are your thoughts about Lina’s performance? Should Loreen be proud of this young girl? Let us know below!
