Earlier this week, Eurovision Ireland asked James’ nephew what he thought of the Junior Eurovision entries heading to Minsk this Sunday. He reviewed the first 10 already and now it’s time for the remaining 10 – so over to Eurovision Ireland’s youngest member, 6 year-old Jack!
To keep it fair with the entries from earlier in the week, Jack watched the official videos of this year’s JESC entries with James. And today, while he offered points with his thoughts, he didn’t take any prisoners! Who caught his attention? Who did he love? And who just downright weirded him out? Read on and find out!
ITALY – WHAT IS LOVE – MELISSA & MARCO
I don’t like it… (Uncle James tries to get more of an answer) nope… don’t like it… *thinks for a moment* Is one of them at least going to fall into the water? (No, Jack…) *Jack looks disappointed*
AUSTRALIA – CHAMPION – JAEL
*smiles and holds up 10 fingers* I don’t like it, I love it! I can understand what she’s saying!
GEORGIA – YOUR VOICE – TAMAR EDILASHVILI
It was OK, but wasn’t perfect, but I give it a 9 just to be nice. Not as good as 10, but still OK. I don’t like it because it’s just in a city.
ISRAEL – CHILDREN LIKE THESE – NOAM DADON
What is he singing? (explains it’s in Hebrew and looks up a translation of the lyrics for Jack) *looks unsure* I’ll give it a 5…
FRANCE – JAMAIS SANS TOI – ANGÉLINA
Does everyone in France wear those black hats? (Do you mean berets? Yes, he does…) Are they all mimes? (No… where did you get all these ideas about France?!) If I could give the song any number under 0 I would!
MACEDONIA – DOMA – MARIJA SPASOVSKA
*watches Marija in the cage* Is that really her home? How does she get out? *pulls a face* I don’t like it… it’s all dark… whoever put her in there isn’t very nice! (Uncle James explains Marija doesn’t really live in a cage and it’s just a music video) Ooooohhh….!
ARMENIA – L.E.V.O.N – L.E.V.O.N
*Doesn’t say much for a lot of the song* I’ll give it an 8! Because I don’t like apricots… (Uncles James having explained Armenia is famous for his apricots when Jack asked where it was)
WALES – PERTA – MANW
I am definitely giving it a 3… no wait… a 2… I do like it, but she’s not doing much… she’s not being herself, I’ve seen people do this before.
MALTA – MARCHIN’ ON – ELA
*looks utterly bemused* Why does everything look like it’s abandoned… that’s really weird… wait, why are they wearing life jackets?! I don’t like it!
POLAND – ANYONE I WANT TO BE – ROKSANA WĘGIEL
I like it, she looks like my cousin, except for the hair! (Uncle James knows the cousin he means, no she doesn’t look like Roksana…) I like the music too.
So after hearing the remaining 10 entries for Junior Eurovision 2018, Jack’s Top 10 from tonight looks like this:-
Do you think our Junior Jurer is on to something? Tune in on Sunday for the final of the Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2018 to find out who will be crowned winner!
