BULGARIA – It’s gonna be a ‘magical day’ on October 2nd for Bulgarian entrant, Lidia Ganeva, as we will all cheer probably for the official broadcast of her Junior Eurovision 2016 entry. Snippet of the song can be heard in the BNT footage above. Graffa – Vlamidmir Ampov composed the Bulgarian entry with lyrics by Iliya Grigorov. It is claimed to be quite a modern composition.
FORMER YUGOSLAV REPUBLIC OF MACEDONIA – With no details on the authors of the entry by FYR Macedonia, MRT announced via Twitter the title of the song. Martija Stanojković will perform the song “Love Will Lead The Way” on november 20th. Martija Stanojković is a talented young artist who’s performing since the age of five. While she became popular through her participation in Pinkovi Star, the video and the song for FYR Macedonia will be released soon.
CYPRUS – With the 2016 entrant George Michaelides recording his song “Dance Floor” which soon will be available online, Cyprus national broadcaster is the first country to confirm participation in the 2017 Junior Eurovision edition, an announcement which took place during a press conference for the presentation of the 2016 – 2017 CyBC season.
In the meantime complete silence from Malta and the Junior Eurovision 2016 organisers as still we have no news about anything regarding the preparations of the contest, besides our own speculation / calculation about the 16 participating countries. We do hope for more news from Malta, with more enthusiasm as we have only less than 1,5 months for delegations, fans and media representatives to land in the island.
