In only five days time, Junior Eurovision 2019 will finally take place in Poland. First rehearsals for the contest officially kicked off today inside Gliwice Arena.
Yerzhan Maxim donned a bright blue suit. Carla brought the bam and boom. And Karina Ignatyan made it clear that pink is the colour of her dream. And that was just three of the ten countries that had their first rehearsal on 19 November. But who among today’s acts — Malta, Kazakhstan, Italy, Ireland, Georgia, France, Belarus, Australia, Armenia and Albania — do you think made the most impact?
This year’s first rehearsals are all held behind closed doors. But, luckily the EBU have uploaded photos and small snippets of each rehearsal for us to look at.
You can watch the clips and check out the pictures of today’s first rehearsals below. Then vote in our poll. You can vote for as many countries as you like, but you can only vote one time, so make it count. Be sure to click the box next to each act you want to support before pressing submit.
