Sad news for British #JuniorEurovision fans: the Belarussian Head of Delegation has dashed hopes of a #UK return to Junior Eurovision in 2018 after BTRC published a mistake. 🇬🇧 😥

BTRC says "We made a mistake; the UK will not be present at Steering Group meetings" - ESCXTRA

The Belarussian Head of Delegation has confirmed that no representative for the United Kingdom will be present at Steering Group meetings for Junior Eurovision 2018.

More than a month has passed since the Junior Eurovision 2017 final, but Georgia’s JESC 2017 singer @grigolkipshidzeofficial is already jumping head-first into new projects. And on Monday the JESC jury vote winner revealed that he will sing the theme song to the latest Naughty Children movie. He’s getting ready for New Year’s Eve in style by hitting the big screen! #JESC2017 #JuniorEurovision

A trip down memory lane. Belen at ESC Plus published pictures of the 2003 Junior Eurovision singers (the first show) and how they look these days. Some have changed really dramatically.

In Tbilisi at the Junior Eurovision song contest a great program book was handed out looking very much like those at ADULT Eurovision. Roy of ESC Covers had each of the 16 acts sign the book and for the next days we will post it. Today we can highlight the sixteenth one and it is also the last one – it is the RUSSIA who ended with 188 points – just 3 points more than Georgia.

We publish this eitorial from Belen of ESC Plus

We continue our review of the aspects that need to change to improve the format of the Junior Eurovision Song Contest, so it becomes a favourite educational show for the youngest. This time, we will talk about the competing songs, which are now attributed to adult writers. What’s the point of organising a song contest for children when the composers are adults?

Before we talked about the rise of the vocal requirements in the Junior Eurovision Song Contest when it comes to the results of the competition. The kids’ versión of Europe’s Favourite TV Show has become a hard voice competition following other talent shows, which means that the music itself is no longer so relevant in the competition.

The lost creativity

In the early editions of Junior Eurovision, the kids were the only authors of the songs, and they were the only credited under the title. With the passing time, rules allowed adults to help children with the composition procedure of the tracks. Nowadays, however, there is no exact rule about the composition of the competing songs, that has led many countries to send songs written entirely by adults. So, we could say that the Junior Eurovision Song Contest is currently won by adult authors.

There is no doubt that it’s not easy for children to compose a song by themselves, but at least they should be credited as the writers of the compositions, so adults aren’t promoted in a contest that is not supposed to be for them. We think that, if children were the main authors of the songs and the songs were rated over other aspects, the pressure on the participants would be reduced, as the effort made for months would be appreciated more than a three-minute live performance.

“Creativity in children is so important. Creativity helps teach cognitive skills such as mathematics and scientific thinking. Creative thinking involves imagination, basic use of the scientific method, communication, physical dexterity and exertion, problem posing, problem-solving, making interpretations, and using symbols which help with future literacy skills.” www.loveplayandlearn.com

In the last few editions, we have seen how some authors take part in national selections or Junior Eurovision again and again, while others have already written songs for the competition. This leads us to believe that participants performing songs by experienced composers have more chances to succeed in both, national finals and Junior Eurovision. This year, at least five countries sent songs composed by authors that had already written entries for the 2016 edition, while Georgia and The Netherlands have trusted on the same authors for the last four editions. It’s interesting to remember that the same author has composed almost all the Georgian songs of the history of Junior Eurovision. This makes Junior Eurovision a monopolised competition concerning composers, that leads to a loss of interest and low chances for others.

We think that the broadcasters and the European Broadcasting Union should encourage creativity in children at the national selections and the contest itself, so all young candidates would have the chance to represent their country in such a huge event, not only the ones with powerful trained voices, experienced composers, and top discographies.

This year, only five out of sixteen participants were credited under the song they performed. Moreover, many of the composers had already worked on previous Junior Eurovision entries:

Nicole Nicolaou – I Wanna Be A Star (Cyprus) – Compositores: Constantinos Christoforou

Alicja Rega – Mój Dom (Poland) – Compositores: Marek Kościkiewicz

FOURCE – Love Me (The Netherlands) – Compositores: Joost Griffioen, Stas Swaczynan (JESC 2014, 2015, 2016)

Misha – Boomerang (Armenia) – Compositores: Avet Barseghyan (JESC 2014, 2015, 2016), David Tserunyan, Artur Aghek, Vahram Petrosyan

Helena Meraai – I Am The One (Belarus) – Compositores: Rita Dakota (Russia – JESC 2016), Helena Meraai

Mariana Venâncio – Youtuber (Portugal) – Compositores: João Cabrita, Mariana Andrade

Muireann McDonnell – Súile Glasa (Ireland) – Compositores: Muireann McDonnell, James McGuire, Robert McGuire

Mina Blazev – Dancing Through Life (FYR Macedonia) – Compositores: Aleksandar Masevski (JESC 2016)

Grigol Kipshidze – Voice Of The Heart (Georgia) – Compositores: Temo Sajaia, Giga Kukhianidze (JESC 2007-2008, 2010-2016)

Ana Kodra – Mos Ma Prekni Pemen (Albania) – Compositores: Jorgo Papingji (JESC 2012), Kristi Popa

Anastasiya Baginska – Don’t Stop (Ukraine) – Compositores: Kateryna Komar, Anastasiya Baginska

Gianluca Cilia – Dawra Tond (Malta) – Compositores: Emil Calleja Bayliss, Dominic Cini

Polina Bogusevich – Wings (Russia) – Compositores: Taras Demchuk (JESC 2011, 2012, 2013)

Irina Brodić and Jana Paunović – Ceo Svet Je Naš (Serbia) – Compositores: Lejla Hot, Ognjen Cvekić, Jana Paunović, Irina Brodić

Isabella Clarke – Speak Up (Australia) – Compositores: Toby Chew Lee, Cameron Hollywood Nacson, Chloe Papandrea, Jess Porfiri

Maria Iside Fiore – Scelgo (Italy) – Compositores: Stefano Rigamonti, Fabrizio Palaferri, Maria Iside Fiore, Marco lardella (JESC 2016)

Every year, the European Broadcasting Union launches a digital copy of the official album that includes all the songs competing at Junior Eurovision. We don’t know who gets the money from sales, composers or labels, but we think that it would be a good idea to give it to the youngest authors or donate funds to charity projects that support children around the world.

Musical and visual monotony

As we have already mentioned, the Junior Eurovision Song Contest has become a kind of talent show in which the song isn’t relevant enough. This has led some countries to focus more on the voice and less on the song and staging, which has resulted in a profound musical and visual monotony. Much of this monotony is due to the fact that most of the countries select soloists and only two or three groups compete every year.

The growing importance of vocal talent has led some participating broadcasters to invest least in stagings focusing on slow songs that showcase the voice of the performers. Since the beginning, the number of ballads in the competition has increased gradually from around four to eight, and it is expected to rise in the future as slow songs keep on winning Junior Eurovision. One important detail to keep in mind is the fact that four ballads have won the last five editions of the contest for children, being the only pop catchy song ‘Not My Soul’ sang by Destiny, who won mostly thanks to her powerful voice. An increase of slow songs in Junior Eurovision would make this show monotonous and boring for the kids, so it would continue to be watched mainly by people aged over sixteen.

With regard to stagings, we have seen that they have lost dynamism and originality compared to the ones of earlier editions. This means that some of the performances are visually unattractive and the audience, especially kids, lose interest in watching the contest as poor stagings and slow songs contribute to a monotonous TV show.

Some delegations might not have the necessary funds to afford the accommodation of additional performers, so we think it would be a good idea that the host broadcaster provided them with local young dancers and musicians for free. In this way, all the participants would have the chance to perform like real stars.
