TG4 has just revealed they will be taking part in this year’s Junior Eurovision Song Contest after having missed the 2020 edition because of the uncertain situation derivated from the Pandemic.
All interested singers and bands with members of the same household can apply to perform in the audition phase. Submissions are open to children who will be aged 9-14 on the date of the competition this Autumn while applicants may be a solo singer or a group of maximum six children. Following the format of their 2019 national selection, an original song isn’t necessary as they’re looking for an amazing voice.
Adare Productions are putting a call out for talented young singers who will be aged between 9 and 14 years this Autumn. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity for a talented youngster or group to represent Ireland at an international level.
The Irish heats will take place in line with HSE guidelines and subject to COVID 19 Government restrictions at that time. The winner will go on to represent Ireland at the JUNIOR EUROVISION Song Contest 2021., said the organizers of the national selection.
The candidates shall send their applications no later than March 19 through the form available on the official site of Adare Productions.
This will be the sixth participation of TG4 at the Junior Eurovision Song Contest after having taken part in 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019. Their best result came in 2016 when they achieved the 10th place with Zena Donnelly and her self-composition “Bríce Ar Bhríce”. In 2019, Anna Kearney represented Ireland with the song “Banshee” and finished 12th.
