Debut nation Kazakhstan are starting their Junior Eurovision journey with a bang after an exciting national final! A total of 10 acts took to the stage to face the public and jury vote.
Here are the 10 competing acts:

The result was revealed live, and unsurprisingly, it will be crowd favourite Daneliya Tuleshova who will be representing Kazakhstan with the song Öziñe sen. Daneliya rose to fame after winning the Junior New Wave singing competition in 2015, and then in 2017 she went on to win the Voice Kids Ukraine where she was mentored by Monatik, who was the opening act of the first semi-final of Eurovision last year in Ukraine. Daneliya is 12 years old, and she hails from Almaty, Kazakhstan.
