Tonight Wales begins its search for the Junior Eurovision Song Contest 201 with the first episode of Chwilio am Seren.
The first show of Chwilio am Seren commences this evening, with the first of two auditions shows. The first episode will follow the auditions shows that took place across Wales, as the mentors determine the first acts going through to the semi-finals in Swansea.
Connie Fisher and Tara Bethan will both return as mentors. Joining them on the panel is Lloyd Macey. Lloyd first came to public attention after appearing on the fourteenth series of the X Factor in 2017. He was eliminated from the show one week before the final.
A total of 12 acts have been shortlisted after the mentoring stage to take part in the semi-finals in Swansea. These 12 acts will be cut in half to the final six who will compete in the final. The winner will be selected by a combination of industry expert voting and an audience vote.
Follow the show live on S4C from 21:00 CET.
Wales made their debut in the Junior Eurovision Song Contest last year in Belarus. Wales was represented by Manw and the song “Perta” on stage in Minsk, Belarus. They finished 20th in the final, scoring all of their 28 points from the online vote. Wales scored 0 points from the juries in each of the competing countries, alongside Portugal.
