Lina Kuduzovic Slovenia Junior Eurovision 2015

Slovenia have stripped it all back for their first rehearsal at Junior Eurovision 2015. The staging is very minimal. Lina Kuduzovic stands alone, dressed in a plain white dress. As she sings “Prva ljubezen”, her ballad to first love, the background changes between various shades of blue, while spotlights shine to the sky. And that’s it. No dancers. No backing singers. With such simplicity, we’re forced to focus on Lina’s pitch perfect vocals. The bigger stage certainly hasn’t dented her confidence, and her delivery is every bit as good as the performance which won her the Slovenian ticket in Mini EMA.

It’s a bold move by Slovenia. While simple staging can allow one to focus more on the singer, it also has its drawbacks. And of course, they’ve been thwarted by it at both Eurovision 2015 and last year’s Junior Eurovision. It will be interesting to see how this all turns out on screen.

Update: In subsequent takes the backdrop was filled with castles and hearts… not so simple after all. You can get a taster in the JuniorEurovision.tv photo gallery.

Lina has the most flawless vocals. And hey, last year’s winner and indeed the year before that – everything was very simple and just had a singer with a ballad and a strong voice.

Lina has a great chance.

Same as last year nothing new from Slovenia. Similar song for me beter song they had last year. So overrated by wiwibloggs fan but it will not be in TOP 5 and maybe not in TOP 10.

A very mature singing and performance. Lina is the perfect winner fom me despite the bad draw for the 3rd position. I will vote for Slovenia and hope that the winner will be Slovenia.

Well, Italy last year (Vincenzo) had moderately simple staging too. We cant rule this out.
