Over the last few weeks, we’ve been getting in the Junior Eurovision mood by going back in time and recapping the entries from the nations participating in 2017. Some of these nations have been participating since the debut year of the contest, while some nations have only just joined the Junior Eurovision party. Today’s subject is of the latter category, which is going to make this post quite short and sweet, but, regardless of the amount of entries a nation has sent, we still want to know which is your Junior Best of the Bunch! As you probably know from the title, today we’re looking back on the Australian entries to Junior Eurovision!
It’s been a very short history for Australia at Junior Eurovision. They first made their debut in 2015, not long after the nation made their Eurovision debut with Aussie star Guy Sebastian. It was exciting to hear that Australia would be continuing their involvement in the contest through the Junior format, and for their debut year, Australia sent Bella Paige, a former Voice Kids participant who finished as a runner up in the debut season. Her Junior Eurovision song was titled My Girls, a uplifting pop number all about the sisterhood! The song finished in 8th place with a total of 64 points.
In 2016, Australia returned to the contest with yet another former Voice Kids participant – Alexa Curtis. Alexa participated in the same season as former Junior Eurovision representative Bella Paige, however Alexa took it one step further and won the competition as part of Delta Goodrem’s team. Her song was called We Are, and it was well received by the juries, with her total points reaching 202, leaving her in 5th place!
We did say it was a short one this week, with just these two acts, but we still want to know which of these two Australian acts is your Junior Best of the Bunch!
