FOURCE has won the second Semi-Final of Junior Songfestival 2017 and will compete at the Dutch national final for this year’s Junior Eurovision, which will air on September 16. Today’s qualifier has been decided by solely jury voting.
The Semi-Final 2 featured the following three acts:
- Manouk – Say You Won’t Let Go (James Arthur) 2nd
- FOURCE – There’s Nothing Holdin’ Me Back (Shawn Mendes)
- Wieke & Dylan – A Whole New World (Disney’s Aladdin) 3rd
All three candidates were judged by a professional jury panel which was made up of Kim-Lian van der Meij, Tim Douwsma and Sharon Doorson. The winner of the second Semi-Final will join the last week’s qualifier Sezina and the winner of the special wildcard Montana in the final of Junior Songfestival 2017.
The line-up for the final of Junior Songfestival 2017 is as follows:
Keep in mind…
The Dutch broadcaster has decided to go back to the televised shows for 2017. However, this year’s Junior Songfestival will be different from previous editions as, apparently, it will be aimed to select the singer and the winner will be selected by 100% jury decision. Moreover, the shows seem to have been recorded a few days ago, so the winner might have already been chosen. We will have to wait and see what AVROTROS has in its pockets…
