In recent days the Junior Eurovision 2017 stars have shown us what they’ve got — and that happens to be some amazing staging and dazzling LEDs. So Marc Mingels — our special photography correspondent for JESC this year — was incredibly enthused when organisers opened the gates to the arena today, allowing him to snap up a storm during second rehearsals.
Below you can see our candid snaps of all the action — from Isabella Clarke’s ferocious catwalk moves to Misha’s billowing smoke to Helena Meraai’s glittering universe of stars.
Then scroll down even further to see some behind-the-scenes video footage from today’s press conferences and rehearsals courtesy of Georgian wiwiblogger Rezo Mamsikashvili. He filmed interviews with several of this year’s acts, and we’ll be uploading them in due course.

He kept our Instagram stories coming thick and fast, and has updated countless candids for you to enjoy.
