 lilla melodifestivalen 2014
Recently Sweden revealed the eight teenagers who have made the final of Lilla Melodifestivalen 2014 (Sweden’s national final for JESC). They had over 1000 entries, which is up on recent years and a HUGE number in any case. Let’s hope this means we’ll be hearing eight awesome songs! The finalists were chosen by Linnéa Wikblad, Tine Matulessy and Christer Björkman from auditions (of the top 20 kids) held on the 5th April. The final will be on June 6th at Grona Lund, radio as usual unfortunately.
 
Let me tell you about the finalists:
 
skyscraper 
Skyscraper is a group of 4 boys - Vilhelm Buchaus, 12 years old from Sigtuna, Anton Kyldahl (14) from Bohus-Björkö, Isak Pettersson (11) from Björnlunda,  Andreas Palm (14) from Lindesberg. They were formed during Stage Academy Camp in October 2013. They will in 2014 participate inSweden’s version of Got Talent (Talang) – see their audition here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zg37ypl7kQc. They all love football but it's still the music that they love best and even though they are of different ages, they have together found each other through music. Their biggest dream is to go on a world tour together. The immediate objective of the guys is to come out and perform for you, all the amazing fans!

05April What can we expect for JESC 2014?
Saturday, 05 April 2014 15:11

 
Executive supervisor Vladislav Yakovlev has stated that the contest started to decline after 2006 when they failed to keep several countries in and says that his focus for 2014 will be to keep the 2013 competitors in and hopefully introduce some new countries. Possible entrants could be Germany and Hungary who sent people to Kiev last year, Poland who has returned to both ESC and Young Dancers, as well as much talked about Spain and Italy. Spanish fans especially have been clamouring for Eurojunior to return for years.
 
The steering group has recently met in Malta to discuss the planning of the event. The steering group is comprised of:
Ekaterina Orlova (Chairwoman)
Vladislav Yakovlev (EBU Executive Supervisor)
Viktoria Romanova (NTU, as organiser in 2013)
Anja Zegwaard (AVROTROS, as organiser in 2012)
Tine Matulessy (SVT)
Olga Salamakha (BTRC)
Anton Attard (PBS, as organiser in 2014)

So far we have heard these rules:
The running order will be determined by a random draw held at the Opening Ceremony as in 2013. The kids will pick their positions in the show out of a hat. In a slight change, there will be no wildcards or host country preference – so all countries will be drawing their starting positions at random.
2013 was also the first time that trophies were awarded for the artists finishing in second and third place. This will continue in 2014, although it won’t be part of the ‘on-screen’ television show. The participants finishing second and third will be awarded their trophies in the press conference after the show.
Songs eligible for the competition may be between 2:45 and 3:00 minutes in length, and may only be released from 1 May 2014.

 
05April The Tolmachevy Twins are back

Many past JESC singers have entered national finals for JESC, indeed this year in Malta entrants from three different Junior Eurovision entries all performed in the same song (Sophie Debattisa from Malta 2006,Charlotte Debattista from Malta 2004 and Nika Turkovic from Croatia 2004 – all were part of Sophie’s ESC 2014 attempt). Not to mental Daniel Testa (JESC 2008 Malta), Thea Saliba (JESC 2005 Malta) and Gaia Cauchi (JESC 2014 Malta) were all present. Until 2010 though, no JESC singer went to ESC. In 2010 Weronika Bochat from Poland (KWADro 2004) was part of the team singing “Legenda” for Poland in Eurovision. Then last year, Nevena Bozovic (Serbia 2007) was part of Serbia’s Eurovision trio. 2014 will mark the first year that a JESC singer is the only performer in a Eurovision act, AND the first year a JESC WINNER will compete in ESC. I am talking about the Tolmachevy Twins who won JESC in 2006 – they are back to represent Russia this year in Eurovision with a song called “Shine”, now as the “Tolmachevy Sisters”. Neither Nevena or Weronika managed to qualify with their entries in ESC, can the twins be the first JESC singers to make the Eurovision final?

05April Sweden join for JESC 2014

Sweden have confirmed their participation in Junior Eurovision 2014. They received over 1000 submissions for their NF “Lilla Melodifestivalen” and a jury picked the 8 best to go to a national final on June 6th. Finalists were informed on March 28th so if you entered and didn’t hear back, try again next year.
 
Also something interesting – did you know that ESC 2013 entrant for Sweden Robin once entered JESC? When Robin Stjernberg was 10 years old, he sent a song to Lilla Melodifestivalen. It came to the top 20, but not the final. It was a song about when Robin was unhappily in love with a girl.
