From the 8 chosen finalists, a professional jury will selected the members of the pop-band, apparently to be a trio, that will represent The Netherlands at Junior Eurovision 2016. After this, the band members will spend the whole summer working on their song, staging and other preparations for the international contest.

This year, the Dutch broadcaster has opted for a format change based on the on-line interaction, through YouTube, juniorsongfestival.nl and social media. This means the end of the Junior Songfestival televised shows which had been being aired every year since 2003.
