Last week we reported that the first semi-final took place in The Netherlands, where Sezina took the top spot and secured her place in the final. The second semi-final has now taken place, where one act won the chance to continue their journey in the hopes to represent their nation at Junior Eurovision in Georgia this year. One of the eliminated acts also won the wildcard spot, and will be performing in the final next week.
This semi-final featured these three acts:
Fource – There’s Nothing Holding Me Back (Shawn Mendes)
Wieke and Dylan – A Whole New World (Aladdin)
Manouk – Say You Won’t Let Go (James Arthur)
The winner of the semi-final was chosen purely by jury, and the jury decided that Fource would be the lucky act to continue their Junior Eurovision journey. This means that the boy group will be joining Sezina in the Grand Final alongside the wildcard act.
The wildcard was selected by a different jury, made up of former Junior Eurovision stars including Ralf Mackenbach, Mylene and Rosanne and Kisses. They decided that Montana was to be the third finalist, who performed in the first semi-final with the song Hold My Hand.
The grand final is to take place on Saturday, where one of the three finalists will win the opportunity to represent The Netherlands in Tbilisi in November. The song will be revealed at a later date. Listen to the three finalists here:
