Italy have one of the longest histories at Eurovision, but at the Junior edition of the contest, they’re still quite new. Their debut act was in 2014, and have since participated at the contest, with no less than two of the three entries finishing in the Top 3, including a win! Although they do have a short history at Junior Eurovision, we want to find out which is your Junior Best of the Bunch from Italy!
We’re starting our Junior Best of the Bunch journey on a high, with Italy’s best result at the Junior Eurovision Song Contest! The year is 2014, and it’s Italy’s debut at the contest, and they chose to send Vincenzo Cantiello with the song Tu Primo Grande Amore. Interestingly, he was the only male vocalist of the entire show, but this, along with his incredible song and voice made him stand out from the rest, winning the contest with 159 points.
The following year, twins Chiara and Martina Scarpari were chosen to represent Italy, and they had tough shoes to fill thanks to Vincenzo’s win the previous year. Their song was called Viva, and despite the catchy melody and the fabulous harmonies, the sister duo failed to impress Europe’s audiences, with Italy finishing in 16th place with 34 points.
We’re finishing Italy’s short Junior Eurovision journey here in 2016, where the talented young star Fiamma Boccia was chosen to represent her nation with the beautiful tribute to her mother titled Cara Mamma (Dear Mom). The song was sensitive, and performed wonderfully, which led Fiamma to finish in a well-deserved 3rd place with 209 points.
It’s a short poll today, but we still want to know which Italian Junior Eurovision act is your Best of the Bunch!
