Stéphane Bern will once again return to commentate on the Junior Eurovision Song Contest for France, alongside Carla.
France Télévisions has revealed in a press conference that Stéphane Bern and Carla will commentate on the Junior Eurovision Song Contest live on France 2. Stéphane is no stranger to commentating on Eurovision events, as he has provided commentary for the 2010, 2015, 2017, and 2018 Eurovision Song Contests, as well as the 2018 and 2019 Junior Eurovision Song Contests.
France’s Junior Eurovision 2019 entrant Carla joins Stéphane in the commentary box for the first time.
Who is Valentina?
France’s fourth Junior Eurovision entrant is Valentina. Valentina was born on April 6 2009 in Rennes in Brittany. Her love for music comes from her mother, who used to sing her lullabies. At the age of 6, she auditioned for The Voice: Kids. She has been a member of Kids United Nouvelle Géneration, a French children’s music group, since 2018. She has recorded two albums with the group and has taken part in UNICEF campaigns.
