Junior Eurovision 2019 | Wales release the official video of 'Calon Yn Curo'
'Y Ddraig Goch' has risen, and has breathed new life in to their Junior Eurovision entry, as the Welsh national broadcaster for Wales, S4C, have today officially released the video for their entry, "Calon Yn Curo" which has just been made available to view on YouTube. Once again, the Celtic nation has gone out to impress, and to show Wales at its best.
The video which was filmed in Felinheli, and Llanrwst over the weekend goes a long way in presenting Wales at its finest. Spoiler alert!!!!! With the Rugby world cup on at the moment, there will be no surprise to see a rugby ball feature in the video. You can check out the video below:
The song starts with Erin singing her entry in a darkened room with lights, and love hearts. There are those moments on the rugby pitch, in a school hall where young children have nerves, and fears, but, "Calon Yn Curo" help conquer these. The song sounds slightly different to the version that Junior Eurovision fans were accustomed to when Erin won, "Chwylio Am Seren" two weeks ago. The video has an added string element, or should we say violin sequence, which really brings out the Celtic feel to this year's entry. It even includes a bit of tap dancing too.
As official video's go, this is certainly one of the more creative ones that have been released recently. Could November, see Erin, and the whole of Wales get a decent placing at the contest? It is very happy, it is very colourful, and certainly very Welsh.
Check out Jess reacting to the original performance below:
Last year, Wales joined the Junior Eurovision family for the first time, and sent Manw with the song, "Perta". Despite winning many fans, it failed to inspire the voters that saw it languish in last place. Despite this, Wales' passion for music still stands strong, and the country are determined to show off the language, and what it can do as a small nation on Europe's biggest stage.
What do you think of the song, and the slight re-vamp? Do you like it? Do you think Wales could do better at the contest this year? Please tell us your thoughts in the comments below.
