JESC 2018 | Tonight Wales Chooses Its First Ever Junior Eurovision Representative
The wait is nearly over for Wales, as tonight it decides their Junior Eurovision entrant for Belarus in November. The welsh broadcaster S4C has also given further details of tonight's show in which a new junior Eurovision star will be born.
The show will be broadcast live from Llandudno, which is in the heart of the North Wales coast, and will see six singers all compete in the grand final of 'Chwilio Am Seren'. The six singers are:
The show will consist of two parts. The first half will see all six singers cover an existing song. Their performance will be judged from a panel of five judges from Aberystwyth, Llandudno, Carmarthen, Cardiff and London (which will give it a UK feel). From there, the judges will chose three finalists who will sing "Hi Yw Y Berta". From there it is all down to the viewing public, and the audience in the venue who will chose the winner.
Prior to tonight's final, there were two pre-recorded shows, the first saw an auditioning stage, whilst the second saw mentors Connie Fisher, Stifyn Parri and Tara Bethan whittle down many hopefuls to this evening six finalists.
This year the contest will be held in Minsk, Belarus and will be the 16th official Junior Eurovision. The contest will see a record 20 countries compete, that will see Kazakhstan, and Wales debut, along with Azerbaijan, France and Israel re-join the party.
In several hours, Wales will have its first ever Junior Eurovision artist. Who do you want it to be? Please tell us your thoughts in the comments below.
