11 year old singer Valentina and her fan-favorite song “J’imagine” took the Grand Championship at the 2020 Junior Eurovision Contest, telecast live from Warsaw Poland this morning and afternoon, delivering the first JESC victory for France in the contest.
The song has been one of the fan favorites since it was announced in September. Kazakhstan’s Karakat Bashanova took second with her song “Forever“, and Spain’s Solea took third for her monster fan favorite “Palante“. The Netherlands and Belarus rounded out the top five.
The show was a technical marvel, mixing graphics and video feeds together, as well as a live audience of properly masked crew and cast. The twelve acts each sat in green rooms in their home nations. The startling presentation of the theme song featuring all the contestants virtually on the same stage was stunning.
I’ll have a full wrap up later today on my video channel at TKR VideoCentral on YouTube.
