The first song for Junior Songfestival 2018 was released. Girl band Remix with the song “What Girls Do” will be competing to represent The Netherlands at Junior Eurovision 2018.
Remix is a group made up of four young girls, Xanne (14, Heenvliet), Roula (13, Den Haag), Mimi (12, Amsterdam) and Jazz (13, Uden). They will be performing their song “What Girls Do” on the 24th of September to get the chance to represent The Netherlands in Minsk on November 25, at the Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2018. So far only a lyric video has been released but we should expect official video clips by the end of the summer.
The final of Junior Songfestival will take place on September 24. For the first time since 2003, there will be no semi-finals. Also for the first time since 2015, the finalists will perform original songs rather than covers.
Fource was selected to represent the Netherlands at last year’s contest in Tbilisi, Georgia, with “Love Me”. The group finished fourth with 156 points, the best result for the Netherlands since 2011.
