JUNIOEEUROVISION.TV REPORTS – It was originally intended that 4 acts would perform in Rotterdam for the selection, but 2 of the finalists, Unity member Demi and solo singer Robin, could not perform due to a positive COVID-19 test. The remaining 3 acts performed in front of hosts Buddy Vedder and Romy Monteiro, as well as a small audience of family and friends.
T-Square, a group consisting of Thimo (12), Teddy (13), Thijs (13) and Tyrone (13) performed their song Count On Me. Jackie & Janae (Janae, 12 and Jackie, 13) performed the song It’s You And Me while Unity, which tonight consisted of members Naomi (13), Maud (14) and Jayda (13), sung Best Friends.
A combination of a professional jury, a children’s jury and online voting determined Unity as the winners.
Unity consists of Naomi (13), Demi (14), Maud (14) and Jayda (13). They will perform the song Best Friends on the 29th of November. All four members have a rich musical history for their young ages.
Jayda has been part of Kinderen voor Kinderen, a Dutch children’s choir, and has been dancing and singing since she was very young.
Demi, who couldn’t participate in the live national final show tonight, won a platinum record when she was part of Kinderen voor Kinderen, went to theatre school when she was 6 and played Pippi Longstocking in a local musical.
Maud started guitar lessons when she was 8 and has since attended a music academy. She also took part in The Voice Kids in the Netherlands.
Naomi started playing in musicals when she was 7 and has been singing in church years now.
