Today S4C will air the semifinal of the Welsh national selection for the Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2019. Today’s episode, which was recorded a few weeks ago, will show us the 12 candidates qualified from the mentoring performing in front of an audience at Swansea Quadrant Shopping Centre. In the end, we will know who will take part in the live final next week.
The 12 semifinalists were announced at the last week’s episode:
- Cerys TJ
- Cerys H
- Y Minis
Imagine your average Saturday shopping afternoon at your local shopping centre, walking around and finding yourself in the middle of Junior Eurovision glitter with music being performed by some of the country’s best young performers.
This happened to hundreds of shoppers at Swansea Quadrant Shopping Centre when the Junior Eurovision Stage landed in the centre of the city as the S4C series Chwilio am Seren Junior Eurovision Cymru continues across the nation.
Having seen the emotion of saying goodbye to new friends in last week’s episode, it is time to prepare the final twelve acts for their next challenge, to become a step closer to winning a ticket to represent Wales in Poland.
After long discussions and some battles, the mentoring process has officially begun with the three mentors, Connie Fisher, Lloyd Macey and Tara Bethan having all selected their own four acts. All three mentors are very happy with the 12 acts and believe they will all shine and could claim their place on the Eurovision stage.
But how will the performers respond to the mentoring process and will the performers be ready to face a live audience in Swansea?
During the programme Chwilio am Seren Junior Eurovision today on S4C, we will see how the performers cope under pressure, and how some individuals raise the roof with Welsh performances, although they are not fluent in Welsh. Above all, we will see how some acts bring loads of Swansea shoppers to tears with their outstanding performances.
Twelve acts are closer to winning the ticket to represent Wales at the Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2019 in Gliwice, Poland. But who will receive their key to the final from the mentors following the performances this week?
You can watch today’s episode at 21.00 on S4C and our Live Feed.
