The fourth artist to feature in our Who Is series for the Junior Eurovision 2020 season is Unity from The Netherlands.
Girl group Unity consists of members Naomi, Maud, Jayda, and Demi. Naomi is thirteen-years-old and began singing when she was seven.
Maud is fourteen and has been playing the guitar since she was eight-years-old. She has also participated in The Voice Kids in The Netherlands.
Jayda is thirteen-years-old and has been part of Dutch children’s choir Kinderen voor Kinderen since she was young.
Demi is fourteen-years-old and unfortunately didn’t participate in Junior Songfestival with the rest of her team as she had tested positive for COVID. She won a platinum record when she was part of Kinderen voor Kinderen, and went to theatre school.
Unity were selected to represent The Netherlands after they won Junior Songfestival out of three finalists. The group will sing their song “Best Friends” at this year’s contest.
The Netherlands debuted at the first edition of the Junior Eurovision Song Contest in 2003 and is one of only two countries to have taken part in every edition to date. To date the country has only won the competition once. Their only victory came in 2009 when Ralf Mackenbach performed “Click Clack” scoring a total of 121 points, this was just 5 points more than runners-up Armenia and Russia. The Netherlands narrowly lost the contest in 2011 when Rachel performed “Teenager”, she lost by 5 points. The Netherlands’ worst result came in 2015 when Shalisa finished in 15th place out of 17 competing countries.
