The three girls were selected among 29 young artists and 8 finalists after two auditions, held on May 21 and 22:
A professional jury was in charge of choosing the members of the trio that will represent The Netherlands at Junior Eurovision 2016. The girls will spend the whole summer working on their song, staging and other preparations for the international contest. Apparently, the song will be produced by “The Rocketeers”, who were behind the arrangements of the last two Dutch entries for Junior Eurovision.
This year, the Dutch broadcaster 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.
What do you think about this choice?
