In this article you can find in-depth analysis of the rehearsals of the second day of the Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2017, from Albania to Ireland. If you want live updates of everything going on at the press center, please follow our Live-Blog with all the other news as well!

Right on the second day of Junior Eurovision the first rehearsals kick off. Eight courtiers take the stage of Olympic  palace  in Tbilisi. The countries sing on alphabetical order and not according to the running order. Press is not allowed in the Arena until Thursday, but we will provide you with the official footage from the EBU + our commentary.

Albania

Ana Kodra wears a long light blue dress.  She stands alone on the stage and brings the song in a quite emotional way. Her vocals are good although she struggles a bit with the high notes. A tree is featured in the backdrops as she sings about saving the trees and the environment.

Armenia

Misha is alone on the stage in a black fancy suit. He stands on boomerang shaped hoverboard full of energy spreading the boomerang of kindness all over the stage. With his song “Boomerang”,  Misha tries to deliver his message to the world that all the acts of  kindness come back like boomerang .  From the middle of his song he throws his boomerand and in the end he gets it back in his hands with which he tries to prove that he gets back his piece of kindness.

Australia

Isabella Clarke along with her three backing vocalist bring a cheerful mood on the stage.  She is in a silver outfit and the backdrops are colorful. Camera angels are different for each of the runthrough, however the beginning has been always the same – Isabella stands with her back to the audience looking at the camera. Backing vocalist also bring the boards with the lyrics on them.

Junior Eurovision: Italy closes the show right after Australia

Junior Eurovision: Italy closes the show right after Australia

Australia will have the 15th starting position in the Junior Eurovision show on Sunday. This is the result of the running order draw tonight in Tbilisi. Italy closes the show, while Cyprus opens. 

Check out the full draw:

  1. Cyprus
  2. Poland
  3. The Netherlands
  4. Armenia
  5. Belarus
  6. Portugal
  7. Ireland
  8. FYR Macedonia
  9. Georgia
  10. Albania
  11. Ukraine
  12. Malta
  13. Russia
  14. Serbia
  15. Australia
  16. Italy

The draw to determine which songs will be performed first and last in the show, and the starting position for the host country took place during the Opening Ceremony of the 2017 Junior Eurovision Song Contest.

In a rather complicated procedure, Georgia first drew its starting position. Grigol expressed his eagerness to perform last, then took out a number he thought was 6 – but the presenter corrected him and showed it was in fact number 9. Grigol sighed in relief: “At least that’s better than 6”.

Australia takes an empty box

The other countries came to the front one by one to draw a box. Out of 15 boxes, 13 were empty. The other two contained either position 1 or position 16. Cyprus took the starting slot, Isabella from Australia took an empty box, and Maria from Italy took the closing slot.

As is customary, the producers of the show decided the rest of the running order for the Junior Eurovision Song Contest in order to showcase the different styles of music.
