Previous winners perform
The winner of the Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2015, Maltese Destiny Chukunyere, will open the big show with her winning song “Not My Soul.”
Amber, the winner of last year’s final, will also entertain the crowd for the interval act with her dance group Southville Dancers with songs from her upcoming album.
Song could be changed
The result will be decided by a five-member consisting of Mr Nick Clark-Lowes, Viara Ankova, Sabrija Vulic, Luke Fisher and Quinton Scerri (Jury Chairman). The televote is counted as a sixth jury member.
While the winner will get the ticket to Stockholm, PBS reserves the right to change the song. They did not exercise that right last year with Amber, but should they choose to do so, the writers and composers of the winning song will be brought along for the process.
