This Friday, Australian broadcaster SBS will announce which kid will represent Australia in the Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2015. In advance, we will go through some possible candidates for our home soil!
Renee Pozzi came up with the next couple of names: “They have some very good talent from the Voice Kids Australia if SBS want to go down that route…”
11 year old Alexis Curtis, the winner of The Voice Kids Australia, impressed the judges and the Australian public from her first audition onwards. The little songstress was signed by Universal Music after the show but has had limited success since her victory.
The two runner-ups of the Voice Kids, Maddison Milewski (15 years old) and Isabella Yoseski (14 years old), both of European origin, would also have to be candidates to represent Australia. Both girls have powerful voices like singers far beyond their years, and would both be able to deliver a strong vocal at Junior Eurovision. Maddison most recently featured on the current season of the X Factor Australia, being cut during the home visits due to the intense competition.
Another candidate on the SBS radar could be Dean Brady, from Queensland, who rose to fame back in 2013 on Australia’s Got Talent. Although he’s been out of the limelight for quite some time, he’s still eligible for JESC at the age of 11.
A few young Australian singers who are unfortunately NOT eligible for Junior Eurovision include X Factor winner Marlisa and Jai Waetford, who have both turned 16 prior to the contest in 2015.
