Junior Eurovision

Georgia wins with a record number of votes

The winner of the fourteenth edition of the Junior Eurovision Song Contest, Mariam from Georgia received her trophy from the PBS Chairman John Bundy. Georgia obtained a record number of votes, beating even our own Destiny, who last year broke the voting record.

Beaming, laughing and crying, young Mariam received the trophy and carried the winning torch to her homeland. She said that she had been following this since she was six and had always wished to be a participant. She said that when she had won it took time for the information to sink in and it really hit home when she started singing the winning song.

Jedward, also present for the award, complemented Georgia on her win as well as Malta on its organisation of the contest. They said that they wished they had the same strong voice as little Mariam.

Mary and Anahit from Armenia placed second and were too awarded a trophy, as was Italy’s Fiamma Boccia who placed third.
