Marc Mingels and Nikki Huijnen attended on behalf of oikotimes.com the welcome reception for the Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2012 which took place at the Mercure Hotel in Amsterdam where all delegations are staying. The small but efficient stage and the warm icy spirit with the snowed Christmas tree made all 12 participants and 2009 Junior Eurovision winner to sing and cheer audience up!
Lots of pop corn from a special machine, softdrinks with lollipops and other candies were given to the children. Women dressed in national costumes offered the guests with treats like cheese, bitterballen etc. It was indeed a good opening with all delegations excited. Below you can see the video footage we made. Check also the photo gallery here.
