Fabiana of ESC Pedia wrote about each of the 16 entries of Junior Eurovision 2017 and we will publish them.

Cyprus: visually, Cyprus has a lot going on in a good way - they have dancers with a massive choreography, a platform with lights and a bright and dynamic background. It worked well on the video, but the camera work is not as precise as it should be. Nicole had a weak first rehearsal and she got better during the week, but it seems this song is not the right one for her voice - it is, indeed, for her personality. In general, it's a great way to start the show tonight and she is surely making the fans dance in the arena. I think they prefer to have fun and enjoy the moment than to bring a technical performance, with outstanding vocals.

ESCCovers can add that Nicole is such a nice person to talk to and being able to communicate in several languages among them Russian. We hope for a top 5 placing.

Just some thoughts of the ESCCovers team on the first rehearsal, The show started with Cyprus - it was a good up beat start to the show, full of energy and life. Nicole is sure to become a star. Poland took the number two spot and Alicja sang beautifully. She looks like she could be a candidate for Poland in Miss World competition. We were impressed with Helena of Belarus - the vocals were spot on and the staging was breathtaking. Polina of Russia impressed us with her good English and gave a strong and emotional performance on stage. Overall there was really no performance that did not touch us. Towards the end, we again was struck how mature Gianluca of Malta for his age and this could easily take the trophy for Malta again. The show ended with a ballad from Italy which especially Roy likes a lot. We will comment on all 16 entries with a picture during tomorrow afternoon's broadcast.
