Luara Gibby

Luara Hayrapetyan (Armenia 2009) has been cast in a movie! She is now living in the United States trying to become a huge star! And so far it is working for her. She has been recently cast in a movie called "Gibby"! The writer of Gibby (Greg Lyon) describes it as:

"A young teenage girl, Katie, can not snap out of her depression after losing her mother. Katie has lost interest in school, her friends, and gymnastics. All that changes in the summer when she is asked to monkeysit Gibby, her science teacher's Capuchin monkey. Taking care of the monkey changes her life in a big way. Gibby's happy-go-lucky personality renews Katie's zest for life. Gibby helps her with gymnastics, renewing friendships (including finding a potential boyfriend) and overcoming her nemesis, a mean girl who is out to beat Katie at everything."

Luara told JuniorEurosong.net more about her role in the movie! She is cast as a famous singer (herself) and performs at Katie's prom party! Her song Until We See The Sun is featured in the movie. Luara also tells us that she has a dance solo as well! She has been working so hard lately and says it was so much fun to shoot. She cannot wait for the movie to come out in 2015, and we can't wait either!!! Congrats, Luara, for your success!

25October You are Not Alone - Julia releases English version

Julia Kedhammer who is this year representing Sweden has released an English version of her Junior Eurovision song, which is called 'You are Not Alone'. It sounds quite different in English and is definitely worth a listen, I found myself singing along. We got Julia to introduce herself to us, this is what she had to say -

"Well, my name is Julia Maria Linnea Kedhammar and I'm 14 years old. I live in a suburb in Stockholm, Sweden. I live in a house with my mom, my dad, my little sister and my cat. I'm a happy, frisky girl who loves to spread happiness to people around me, witch I can do with my music. And when other people are happy, I'm happy. I think that the message in the song is very important. So with my music, I want to spread messages and love all over the world, that is one of the things that inspires me.

My song is called "Du är inte ensam" (you're not alone) and it's about the questions about who you are supposed to be to be accepted. It's about to be yourself, even in the hardest situations. You are not alone to think of these questions and if you are nobody else except yourself, there will always be someone there for you.

I've thought of these questions, and that's how this song was made. I wrote down my thoughts and then I made a melody and then it goes on and on. That's how I write all of my songs, writing down my thoughts."

Listen to the English version below:

24October Josie's interview on Croatian TV!
Written by Nicolas   Friday, 24 October 2014 21:43


Josie, the young star that will represent Croatia in their long-awaited return to Junior Eurovision, has been interviewed on HRT2 (you can watch the interview here). It was a thirty minute interview in which they followed Josie around the city with her friends and had her talk to Dino Jelusić, the first Croatian representative and of course winner of the inaugural edition.

They start off with Josie mentioning some cute facts like her favourite flower (the rose), her favourite day (Saturday, because she can relax), her favourite genre of books (horror), her favourite colour (red) and her favourite dessert (a brownie with mint ice cream). She also mentioned that she loves 'punk' and 'cool' styles when it comes to fashion.

She talks more about her book, Animingles, which is about friendship. The message of the book is that people shouldn't fight, but actually talk to each other and try to understand each side of the story. She's planning on making a smartphone app for the book, as well!

Of course they also talk about the song she'll sing in Malta, Game Over! She spoke about writing the song herself, having been inspired by personal experiences of her falling in love with a boy playing pool (that explains the music video!).

She's obviously very musical, seeing as she plays violin, the guitar and is planning on learning to play the piano. She also sings in a girl choir, Zvjezdice. Singing is Josie's way of expressing herself. Even though it's tiring and it can be hard to learn a song, they always manage in the end, and this is what she loves about it.

As mentioned before, Dino was also involved in the interview, surprisingly. Dino told her his secret on how to handle nerves: "Don't think about the result. If you do well, that's great, but if not, it doesn't matter. What matters is to leave an impression on the audience." He also told Josie that Game Over is catchy and has everything to do well in Malta!

There is a sneak preview of the performance in the video, with the two dancers they chose through an auditioning process, as well, so don't forget to check it out!

We'd like to thank our good friend Janko for helping us out with translating Croatian!

Wednesday, 22 October 2014 19:02

Lizi Pop

This song is for the kids who are sad and miserable in life...
With my song, I want every kid on every continent and every country
and every family to be happy and joyful in life.

What a happy day indeed! The video for Lizi Pop's Happy Day has been released! Seemingly living in a music box, Lizi Pop floats angelically through the sky in her cute white dress, while her four dancers, Kate Arbolishvili, Nita Lomize, Dea Dashniani and Sophie Dashniani (that's right, no Mariam!) dance around beautifully like ballerinas!

You can check out the video right here!

21October Daniel Testa will be in the Maltese NF
Tuesday, 21 October 2014 11:55

The finalists for the Maltese Eurovision 2015 national final have been announced. If you're going to JESC, you can stay for the national final as it takes place only a week after JESC, isn't that convenient? Anyway, the reason this is interesting to Junior Eurovision fans is that Daniel Testa, who placed 4th for Malta in 2008, is once again a finalist, hoping to claim the crown this year after he missed out last year. His song is called 'Something in the Way', you can watch it below. Domenique Azzopardi and Danica Muscat from their JESC national finals will also compete.
