One of the most annoying things about the Eurovision is the fact that we cannot vote for our own entry, and we need to succumb to the fact that nobody’s going to vote for us because our power as neighbours is never strong enough. Thanks, Europe.
Well, praise be to the song contest gods, because this year for the Junior Eurovision we can vote for our own country! Voting opened last night and will remain open until just before the live final at 4pm tomorrow. Once all the songs have been performed voting will re-open for just 15 minutes. Click here to cast your vote.
You can vote for three, four, or five of your favourite contestants
Including the contestant from your own country! Online voting contributes to half of the final outcome, and the other half is decided by a jury. So let’s band together to show our support for the vocal powerhouse that is Ela Mangion as she prepares to take to the JESC stage one last time to perform ‘Marchin’ On’ tomorrow.
I chose to vote for three contestants; Taylor from Ireland because I like his hair, Anna from Russia because 10 year old me would have died to have a performance set up like that, and Ela from Malta because ovja!
