The Junior Eurovision Song Contest is surely a very popular family event here in Malta and also a showcase in which our younger generation of stars can express themselves through the medium of song. Our nation has participated since the initial event which was held in the capital city of Denmark, Copenhagen. We give the event some extra exposure as it gets closer and therefore, that is why, we are continuing our feature "An Expert Opinion" today. We are going to be taking up each respective entry as drawn by the European Broadcasting Union just last week.

Our four experts have given us their comments and voted but you have to vote for each entry as well because the final result will be 80% Jury and 20% Poll Voting. Today, we will be bringing you the detailed review and biography of the young Sonja Škorić who is representing her nation of Serbia with her balladesque type entry bearing the name "Čarobna noć".

Biography (As Published by Junior Eurovision.tv)

The Serbian representative, Sonja Skoric was born on the 26th of February in 1996 in Pancevo. She has finished the seventh grade in regular school and in the music elementary school she studied how to play the piano. She is also successfully attending classes in solo singing.

From her early childhood she has shown remarkable inclination to music, and started writing lyrics and composing. At the age of five, she began to perform publicly. Her first success was at the music festival in 2002 where she won the First Prize. This was followed by various music festivals and almost as a rule, a series of the first prizes - Pancevo, Zajecar, Nis, Zrenjanin, Zlatibor, Uzice, and Tutin.

The Comments

Niall Mooney: 8 from a possible 10

Got a live performance to watch and this girl has all the ingredients. The stage performance is first class and the song is well crafted , shows off her voice and she is singing in her own language. This could be a winner. I love it.

Ylenia Vella: 9 from a possible 10

An amazing and striking voice which keeps you attentive and anxious to hear the whole song! The change of key is also a surprise! A truly enjoyable melody.

Donna McCaul:
8 from a possible 10

What a fantastic voice. This is going to do very well i think. A Beautiful string arrangement and actually really sweet. This is a good strong song and is definitely one of my favourites.

Annabelle Debono:
7 from a possible 10

A typical ballad that sounds way too "mature" for this contest in my opinion. The singer surely has a lot of potential, and performs well, except for a few notes at the beginning. Ultimately it can still sound different on the night when compared to the rest!  


An extremely good result for the nation of Serbia who have already managed a top three finish within the Junior Eurovision Song Contest. The experts all thought that this song has something special and apart from the song, it is the beautiful voice that is being emitted of the child. It has scored a very good 32 from a possible 40 and that is why is takes over as the leader in the chart. Do not forget to vote in the poll.
