The hunt is on for the voice & song to represent Ireland at this year’s Junior Eurovision Song Contest in Georgia.
Last year Ireland entered the Junior Eurovision Song Contest for only the second time. 13 year old Zena Donnelly from Blackrock, Co. Dublin sang for Ireland in Valetta, Malta, which was broadcast live in 17 countries across Europe.
This year, the event will be held in Georgia, on Sunday 26th November, 2017. But who will represent Ireland?
After extensive auditions nationwide, the top 32 singers have been chosen to go forward to the televised heats. The singers are all aged 9-14.
Over 5 weeks these elite 32 singers will battle it out on TG4, to be the Irish entry for the
Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2017.
They will need to impress the judges – Bláthnaid Treacy, Fiachna Ó Braonáin and the weekly guest judge. Joining the show this year are Jedward, Brendan Murray, Dustin, Niamh Kavanagh, Brian Kennedy and Linda Martin.
Not only will the panel of judges be looking for the best voice to represent Ireland, but also the best song. Each performer will be singing their own original Irish language song in this televised national selection series.
Presenter Eoin McDermott will be keeping the proceedings flowing, while the judging panel will have the tough decision of choosing the winner.
Who will it be? The search begins at 8pm, on Sunday the 22nd of October on TG4.
