RTVE has started the search for technical support to build the stage for Soleá‘s performance in the Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2020. The broadcaster will spend 16.700,00 euros on the building of the stage, including equipment and technicians.
On the occasion of the Spanish performance for the Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2020 at Studio 5 of Prado Del Rey, it’s necessary to rent a curved LED screen, a floor LED screen and a LED sphere., says RTVE in the advert.
RTVE has also detailed the dimensions of the stage, which will be made up of a curved LED screen of 2.9 mm and 13,6 mm wide, and 4,5 mm tall, a LED screen of 2.9 mm and 5.5 mm radius for a usable floor with a methacrylate. There will also be the sferic LED of 1-meter diameter. That means the stage design will emulate the logo of Junior Eurovision 2020 and the motto Move The World.
The recording of Soleá’s performance will take place on 19th and 20th October at Prado del Rey Studios. On the 19th, the stage will be built and tested and the performer will rehearse in the evening. The next day, there will be a lighting adjustment, rehearsals and the recording itself, which will last three hours.
All the performances of Junior Eurovision 2020 will be pre-recorded, while the appearances of the hosts as well as the interval acts will be broadcast live.
the scenario of Junior Eurovision 2020
The format of the show for this year’s Junior Eurovision has changed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, so the participants won’t travel to Warsaw and will perform in their country:
“Travel restrictions and the ongoing issues relating to the COVID-19 pandemic mean regrettably we cannot bring all the artists to Poland to compete in person at the Junior Eurovision Song Contest this year,” said Martin Österdahl, the Contest’s Executive Supervisor.
“We are determined however that the show must go on and that this competition, held annually since 2003, must continue. Despite the changes this year, all the talented youngsters chosen to represent their countries will still have an equal chance to shine, and, as is tradition, families from around the world will be able to vote for their favourite songs online.”, he added.
The contest has also changed its time as it will be broadcast one hour later, at 17.00 CET.
This year, the participants won’t be able to interact in person, but the EBU and participating broadcasters will ensure they stay connected in some way sharing their experiences and performing together. Moreover, the fans will be able to interact with them online.
“Bringing families together is a core mission of public service media and as we reimagine the Junior Eurovision Song Contest for the times we currently live in we are committed to ensuring that everyone taking part this year, from the young singers around Europe to the audience at home, enjoy a positive and unifying experience,” added Martin Österdahl. “We are grateful to all our colleagues at TVP for rising to the challenge of producing an ambitious live international TV production that will travel the world as well as “Move the World”.
13 countries will take part in this year’s Junior Eurovision Song Contest which will take place on 29th November.
