19:30 MERCEDINIAN TIME


Despite winning the main contest twice before, it came as some surprise to the non-event management employees the ENM would pot to host the Junior World Hit Festival before anything else, but an unopposed bid was successful and now here we are in Zoloroni.

Backstage, the sixteen competing delegations are making their final preparations for the contest with people surrounding each artist to make sure they look their best for their big performance later on tonight. There is murmur going round the arena as the commencement of the contest is only minutes away. The crowd gets even more excited as a 60 second timer appears on the LED screen, past winners and memorable performances flash by in the screen as the clock continues to tick down. With about twenty seconds remaining, the WHF tune rings around the arena as the TV audiences join the spectacle from their homes. The audience count down the final ten second as the opening notes of the Digital Flag Ceremony play out.

For these young performers, playtime is over.


Artist Introduction & Digital Flag Ceremony
Lyrics: -
Music: M. Dommazoni, R. Mutso-Zemini
Tune: Vicetone - Apex


The opening notes of the Flag Ceremony play out around the arena, a tune specifically written for the Junior World Hit Festival by the members of the Mercedinian DJ group Rhythm DMZ. The stage goes black as the colour of the different colours of the rainbow pulse from the centre of the stage and outwards until it encompasses the whole arena. The diamond logos of the sixteen nations then flash on screen one at a time, with the changes getting faster and faster as the drop approaches and the song builds in intensity. The acts have been given specific instructions on how the show opener will work; they will walk along the left hand runway, stop and pose on the diamond island and then wake their way back onto the main stage via the right hand runway, effectively creating a triangular route for the acts to the trace. The beat approaches as the audience gets to meet the acts for the first time tonight with them coming out in the order they will perform in tonight's show!

Bie'venido Balkvla Islands!


[0:39] First up come the Sunrise Daughters dressed ready to open the show as they strut down the runway with the crowd waving their flags. The arena is flashed in shades of blue, yellow and white as the Balkvla act make it onto the diamond. The look to the central camera and all make peace with both their hands as they get a small cheer from the Balkvlain contingency in the crowd. They begin to walk back on the other runway as the camera cuts to the next act making their way down the runway.

Wërcarnë Darkmania!


Erplers are next to be seen as they wave to audience as they walk down the runway. Hues of green, blue and red are interrupted by the reigning champions making their way to the island. Erplers wave enthusiastically at the camera as Erika, the youngest of the group, bounces around with excitement with a big smile on her face. The large group of Darkmanians in one of the upper stands produce a loud cheer as they hope to cheer their act to potential back-to-back wins for their nation.

Benvenitu Kalosia!


Maria Kal'ari is next to be shown as she makes her way down the runway with great maturity and poise. Flashes of white and deep blue flash around the arena subside as Maria steps onto the island wearing a wonderful white and flowery dress, which is admired by much of the crowd. Maria gives the camera a cute curtsy as she smiles to the audience before making her way back down the runway before the camera cuts to next act.

Wilkum Estogium!


A loud cheer, especially from the contingencies from Estogium and Britonisea as William and The Band make their way to the diamond, a complex mix of orange, purple, white and an accent of red flash on the stage. The group all take a choreographed bow to the audience with William waving to the rest of the audience as The Band simply stand there motionless with a disinterested look on their faces. Before they all walk back to the main stage to make way for the next act in the sequence.

Maioha Cleaca!


The Cleacan girls, Elenola Anahira & Abigail Apikaira, come down the runway sporting rather eye-catching outfits with are intensified as the lights flash off them and reflect bright colours into the camera. Flashes of deep blue and yellow reflect around the arena. The two girls stand in the centre of the islands and perform the 'moshi-moshi' action by pretending to rub their closed fists against their cheeks with a bent leg and twisted ankle (OOC: I'm not an expert on anime stuff, but hopefully you get the gist), which gets a small cheer for the crowd.

Benvenuto Mercedini!


Few thought that the biggest cheer of the night would go to anyone else other than the host, and they were proved right as Elia Vinci made his way down the runway. He laughs and plugs his ears with his fingers in a response to the noise the home crowd were making. The arena went dark with a slight flicker of blue and yellow as Elia made his way onto the island to greet the crowd. He put his hand on his heart and bowed to the crowd before waving and making his way back to the main stage.

Wilköömen Amouraland!


Next is Gemma Andersson performing for Amouraland, a nation who is making their debut in the contest. Gemma makes her way down the runway waving an Amourish flag, as she smiles to the audience who are cheering her on. The arena flashes navy blue and yellow as Gemma steps onto the island. She blows a kiss to the camera and waves her flag to the uppers stands as she stands to take in the occasion before making her way back via the other runway

Dobrodosil Izmedu!


Carrying the flag of the perennial table-toppers is Jelena Maricic as she makes her way down the runway wearing the Izmeduan flag as some sort of cape. She steps onto the island as the arena is bathed in red, green and blue. Jelena wipes her teary eyes as she smiles and gives the audience a twirl, which causes the flag to waft and float in the air. She gives the audience a couple of peace signs before turning and walking back on the other runway.

Holgome Anollasia!


Next up is the group from Anollasia as they skip with joy down the runway, all sporting cute outfits as the audience wave their flags and cheer them as they come into view. The arena flashed blue and light grey as the group perform a Charlie's Angels-esque pose as they form their hands into gun shapes and point them into the audience, which causes the audience's cheers to intensify as they appreciate the effort. They end the pose and hold hands as they make their way down the other runway.

Maioha Togonistan!


A cheer echoes around the arena as the Rebelz make their way down the runway, representing the nation who has burst onto the scene with their fresh flavour. The are all waving Togonistani and Mercedinian flags which gets a bigger cheer from the Mercedinian crowd, as the Rebelz smile as they make their way onto the island. Flashes of black, gold and red are interrupted as Rebelz make their way onto the island. They all take a choreographed bow as the audience continues to waves their flags. The group give the crowd one final wave before waking back on the runway.

Wälkommen Kalmarlund!


Another debutant is next on the list, as the duo from Kalmarlund make their way towards the island. The arena flashes blue and yellow as the two lads step onto the island. The two guys put their arms around each other and smile into the camera as the crowd cheer them. They smile to the audience before working their way back to the main stage via the other runway.

<error> errorPath corrupt 982f*&сука^ Merecendi!


Next up is Yusatin Awarmseet, representing Merecendi. Some confusion reigned within the crowd as they watch a grown man walking down the runway in what was supposed to be a song for juniors, however they continued to applaud the acts as Yusatin made a sheepish wave to the camera. Flashes of blue and gold whipped around the arena was interrupted by Yusatin as he stepped onto the island, simply waving two peace signs with his fingers. He waved to his contingency as he walked back using the other runway.

Welcome Alinghi Federal-Democratic Republic!


Up next, the Alinghi Federal-Democratic Republic, with their group all holding hands as they walk down the runway. Flashes of blue and white reverberate around the arena as Grupo Sorriso step onto the island. They all give the camera a simple wave before staying close and walking down the other island while holding hands.

Wilkum Britonisea!


Three nations are left to be shown in the digital flag ceremony, next up is Britonisea as Laila Phiona struts down the runway in typical Britonish style. The biggest cheer of the night aside from the hosts greets Laila as she waves enthusiastically to the crowd. A complex mix of blue, red, white and orange flash around the arena as Laila pops a sassy pose before pointing and blowing a kiss to the sea of Britonish flags flying in one of the upper stands. She turns around to walk back holding her hips, she slays.

Wealcoume Vartugia!


Vartugia is the penultimate appearance to make an appearance on the JWHF stage, a Lov sprints childishly onto the stage, filming the whole episode on his Snapchat. The arena flashes black, grey, blue and gold, as Lov jumps onto the island. Waving into the camera as he films the audience. He taps on his phone as he turns his back and nearly falls off the stage while trying to upload his video, before redirecting himself back onto the runway.

Tervetuloa Todlichebujoku!


The final nation to make an appearance in Todlichebujoku, last edition's host. Thorsten struts down the runway with his hands in his pocket as he waves to the audience below him, waving their flags. Different shades of blue and green flash around the arena, as Thorsten becomes the final artist to step onto the island in this part of the show. He performs a simple bow to the audience before walking back via the other runway.

The music draws to a close as all of the artists clap along to the beat of the song before giving the crowd one last wave before walking off the back of the stage to be replaced by the hosts of the evening.


LADIES AND GENTLEMAN. WELCOME TO THE 4TH JUNIOR WORLD HIT FESTIVAL. LIVE FROM ZOLORONI, MERCEDINI

PLEASE WELCOME YOUR HOSTS, GLORIA ANGLIDU AND SAMUEL BORLAVIAC


The two hosts walk down the runway linking arms as they wave to the crowd before making their way to the central diamond island in the centre of the arena. Gloria is wearing a flowing flowery dress with the white cardigan over the top, while Samuel is wearing a slim navy suit with a white shirt and black tie. They make it to the island where the music stops playing and the hosts begin their formalities.

Gloria: Thank you very much. Good evening Zoloroni, good evening multiverse. Welcome to Zoloroni for the fourth edition of the Junior World Hit Festival!

Gloria paused for applause as the members of the audience in front of them waved their flags. The camera cut to a shot at the back of the arena to take in the sheer scale of the arena

Samuel: Yes! This will be the fourth edition of the contest following Darkmania's win in Fauligekaikobu last edition. This is where you will see the next generation of performers, so you may see some of these these artists take the senior contest by storm in just a couple of editions time.

Gloria: Tonight you will see sixteen nations perform on this stage for your votes, then you will get to decide who takes home the JWHF title and trophy for their nation.

Samuel: Before we start the contest shall we hear last edition's victor?

The crowd cheer louder this time, knowing what is to come.

Gloria: That sounds like a yes to me, Sam! Ladies and gentlemen, it's last year's winner, Änna Kisdemin with Fred I Mitt Land!

The camera angle changes to the central elevated camera where the two hosts walk off the island as Anna prepares to perform her winning song from last time.

Opening Act II - Änna Kisdemin - Fred I Mitt Land
Lyrics: Ä. Kisdemin
Music: Ä. Kisdemin
Tune: Christine Guldbrandsen - Alvedansen


The song begins with a camera shot flying across the venue while the backup sings the opening lines. Light blue snowflakes appear on the LED screen behind the group who at currently performing on the main stage. The rest of the performers are dressed in white and conceal the main performer as she waits to begin her vocals.

(Haja... ha haja... haja...)
(Det skal være fred i mitt land)

(Haja... ha haja... haja...)
(There is gonna be peace in my land)


Annä is now reviled in an black dress that is in shreeds, but only from the legs. The back-up and the violinsts are dressed in white as they play in the background while Anna is singing. The stage is noticeably larger this edition compared to the previous edition, meaning the Darkmanian organisers of this song have gone all out on the production value, giving the song a feeling of spectacle as it opens the show.

Ødelegelse, det gir oss et rus
Grønne jord, den er nå blitt rød
Bli med meg, la oss legge alt i grus
Fordi freden, den er død

Destruction, that give us a rush
Green fields, it is now red.
Join with me, let us lay everything in gravel
Because the peace is dead


The performers all band together once again as they sway to the melody of the song. Another overhead shot of the stage and the audience is shown to the viewers at home. Anna holds the microphone with one hand and spreads the other hand wide as they continue to saw side to side.

Haja... ha haja... haja...
Det skal være fred i mitt land
Haja... ha hajaja... haja...
Legg vekk dine våpen

Haja... ha haja... haja...
There is gonna be peace in my land
Haja... ha hajaja... haja...
Lay down your firearms


Anna walks to the side of the stage where the camera sweeps in from the audience to meet her, where the Darkmanian performer sings into the camera while the rest of the performers walk slowly around each other with solemn looks on their faces as their heads look toward the floor. She walks back to the centre of the main stage where the rest of the people on stage have arranged themselves into an arrow formation.

Krig, ja den dreper deg
Krig er ut. Det legger at i nød
Bli med meg, la alt gå opp i ild
Fordi freden, den er død

War, yes it kills you
War is out! It lay all in need
Join with me, let all go up in flames
Because the peace is dead


More swaying but this time steam flies from the stage as an elevated camera position captures the goings-on on the stage. All of the performers now have their arms out wide save for the people holding instruments, who sway while simultaneously play their fiddles or whatever they're holding. The audience are now enthusiastically waving their flags in time with the song, which gets a smile from Anna as she continues to sing.

Haja... ha haja... haja...
Det skal være fred i mitt land
Haja... ha hajaja... haja...
Legg vekk dine våpen

Haja... ha haja... haja...
There is gonna be peace in my land
Haja... ha hajaja... haja...
Lay down your firearms


Anna walks to the front of the main stage on her own, leaving the rest of the performers behind her, which makes the crowd even more excited at they attempt to catch the attention of last edition's winner. The other performers rearrange themselves again so that the people playing instruments are now at the front.

Hør på meg. Vi vil ha fred
Legg vekk våpen og vær venner

Lisen to me. We want peace
Lay down your guns and be friends


A violin solo now takes place as Anna walks to the side of the stage, down the steps and down the runway towards the island. This isn't seen as the camera is busy focusing on the violinist who has remained on the main stage and fiddling like his life depends on it. Anna makes it to the diamond island as the song ends, she lifts her hand in the air to finish her performance.

Haja... ha haja... haja...
Det skal være fred i mitt land
Haja... ha hajaja... haja...
Legg vekk dine våpen

Haja... ha haja... haja...
There is gonna be peace in my land
Haja... ha hajaja... haja...
Lay down your firearms


A giant flag showing the the peace emblem is shown as the flag is held by a one of the backing singers. Annä thanks the audience. "Tusen Takk, alle sammen! Leve lenge fred!", Annä says while there are many camera shots of the audience waving the flags to the competing nations, including Darkmania.


Samuel: Thank You Anna, truly breath-taking!

Gloria: More information on how you will be able to vote will be explained after all sixteen competing nation have sung. But for now...

LET THE JUNIOR WORLD HIT FESTIVAL BEGIN!

The group Sunrise Daughters, which consist of three girls; Doraru Brandybuck (15), Marukarita Goold (11) & Fatima Sandheaver (8) take the stage.

Gold, Blue, White and Green banners are placed on the stage, wind machines began to blow in order to make the banners wave. The three girls take to the stage, and the song begins.

[DB/FS]Nadie ha lukaru 'o okuparu

They start to dance and sing on stage.

The stage lights turned off and were replaced by strobe lights as the trio continued to dance their intense routine, the lights soon returned back for the final chorus.

Perutona detutino de vikutimai detu
Pero verudadu detanai
Tu puropio detutino 'o hateru
People are victims of fate
But that's not true
You make your own fate

Once the song was over the girls all bow to the crowd before leaving the stage.

After Darkmania won the JWHF festival in Fauligekaikobu with a "mild controversial song" (by witch she sang about war), DaTV felt pride in that they finally won something. After a panel having discussed for a long time, they confirmed their choice, 8-1, to defending their shiny trophy. Afterall, they are the second only winner in the Junior song contest. Änna Kisdemin was given the task of being a head of the darkmanian deligation heading into Mercedini, where not only will her sing her winning song, "Fred I Mitt Land", she is (Removed not to create spoilers ahead).

Darkmania will be presented by the group Ërplers, who was formed as part of a school talent show. There, they came in third place. Since then, they have played small gigs just in their native Yrülas province, north of Örkendrem.DaTV felt that this group was the best one who can defend their trophy.




We kick the defending champions entry by Ërika standings standing still while the camera slowly moves toward her. She is currenly wearing some thing simmular to this, exept her dress has more bright colours and her hair has a ponytail on the left sholder. The stage Is litred with fake palmtrees, and there is even a hammock between two of the fake palmtrees. All the group member also wear something tropical and their wear is also colourfull.

(Syng en tropisk sang, Syng en tropisk sang) (Sing a tropical song, Sing a tropical song.)
Dan Dan (*Not norwegian*)
Høsten er ferdig, vinteren startet, kommet med mørke (Autumm is done, winter startet, comming with darkness)
(Syng en tropisk sang) (Sing a tropical song.)
Vann blir til is og grønne plener blir til snødekte tepper (Water becomes ice and green fiend turns into snowcovert carpets)

Ërika slowly walks into the catwalk. When she is at the close to the audience, she sings.
Dette er for alle som fryser hver dag
(Syng en tropisk sang, syng en tropisk sang)
Uh-huh, jeg ser deg
Kulde er verdens verste fiende når vi har deg gøy sammen du og jeg
(Bli meg å syng ja bli meg meg å syng)
Alle sammen, la oss synge frem gleden og varmen nå

Ërika runs back to the main stage, while she sings.
Bli med og syng med meg. Nå, syng en tropisk sang (Join me and sing with me. Now, sing a tropical song)
Vinteren skal vekk. (Winter shall go away)
Nå skal solen frem via sang. Bli med meg å syng. (Now shall the sun come again, Join me and sing.)

Fireworks.
Bli meg å syng
Alle sammen, vis vi syger sammen så vil varmen spres seg sammen med gleden. (Everbody, if we sing together the heat wil spread with the joy)
Bli meg å syng (Nå skal varmen komme frem)
Alle sammen!

Bli med og syng med meg. Nå, syng en tropisk sang (Join me and sing with me. Now, sing a tropical song)
Nå skal varmen komme from
Nå skal solen frem via sang. Bli med meg å syng. (Now shall the sun come again, Join me and sing.)

The audience goes wild. We see shots of Darkmanians waving their flag and holding signs that's mostly written positively about Darkmania.

Maria Kaľari is an 11 year old girl from Monterra, the capital of Kalosia, and has been chosen to represent the nation at the 4th Junior World Hit Festival. The selection method was similar to that of the 3rd JWHF, in which an online poll was held. There was no drama this time — Maria won with wide support (as opposed to the JWHF3 poll, which had the winner narrowly beating a famous child singer).

The song, Moji Amiki, was written by Maria herself. One of her schoolmates, Andreu Roši helped her with the lyrics, and she wrote the song with the help of her music teacher, Natalia Ǧenovesë, and was later mixed in the studio with the help of professional songwriter Stefan Taher.

Maria, her parents, and the delegation were flown to Zoloroni for the competition. Her friend Andreu and teacher Natalia both declined offers to come. Maria brought with her a nice dress specifically bought for the occasion, which she will wear for the performance.

As the song started, the background showed rather cartoonish scenery, a sunny landscape. Maria ran onto the stage followed by some dancers (all girls around her age). They became scattered throughout the stage and as Maria started singing they all performed choreography which was mostly rather simple and similar (i.e. it wasn't complex and everyone mostly did similar moves).


Tudi li žorni
U la matinë
Ja seľu e sentu moltu ešitatu
E ja prepu mi
Per le žornu perše voľu averë un aspetu belu

Arivu ala skolë
E non san tardu
Ja dišu bonžornu a moji ustadi
Bonžornu a voj
Hoj impreremu kalkëkosë novu
E enkontru moji amiki

Or lo es lë dodež ore e ja manǧu
Dopu së, ja ǧoku fori
Kon persone kë rendonu me feliž

All of Maria's friends gather around her, all still facing the audience. Now they all do the same synchronized moves together.

Moji amiki
Moji amiki
Kadë ja san kon voj ja sentu moltu fun, fun, fun
Voľu ǧokarë e kantarë e baľarë insemë
Tudo kon voi

In the last line of the next part, the children all hold out fingers in sync with the counting.
Moji amiki
Moji amiki
U žorni moji, voj sitë komë sun, sun, sun
Giudël toji oki e kontal le stele kon me:
One, two, three, four, five!

The dancers scatter around the stage again, and do some more dance moves, most of them the same with each other.

Tudi li žorni
Ul pomërižu
Ja tornu e sentu ja moltu stanku
E ja desidu
Kë pošemu dormirë se solu per tre minuti

Ja impru ankorë
E ja skrivu pju
Do moji kompiti a moji ustadi
E mi danu pju
Hoj impreremu kalkëkosë ankorë
Ma ja provu restarë fortë

Or lo es lë tre ore e ja lašu
A la kazë ja diro mama
Di tudo le ešperenzë a la skolë

The children walk toward Maria (but don't become as close as earlier) and repeat the dance moves from the previous chorus.

Moji amiki
Moji amiki
Kadë ja san kon voj ja sentu moltu fun, fun, fun
Voľu ǧokarë e kantarë e baľarë insemë
Tudo kon voi

Moji amiki
Moji amiki
U žorni moji, voj sitë komë sun, sun, sun
Giudël toji oki e kontal le stele kon me:
One, two, three, four, five!

In this next part, the camera focuses mostly on Maria. The stage lights get somewhat darker.
Si, a le vacanze
Ja godu il sol, il mar e ventu
Ma ja manku loru
Ja voľu ǧokarë kon moji amiki

On the screen, the words to the first line of the next part appear on the screen as they are being sung, and then the lights are well on again. The girls all form a neat line facing the audience, with Maria in the middle and the girls to her left and right. They are all doing the exact same dance moves, particularly the ones from the chorus.

Moji amiki
Moji amiki
Kadë ja san kon voj ja sentu moltu fun, fun, fun
Voľu ǧokarë e kantarë e baľarë insemë
Tudo kon voi

Moji amiki
Moji amiki
U žorni moji, voj sitë komë sun, sun, sun
Giudël toji oki e kontal le stele kon me:
One, two, three, four, five!

The girls do some more choreography before doing the powerful moves that come with the end of the song.
The song ends and the crowd cheers. Maria, very proud of her performance, says "Gražia, thank you, I love you all!" before she and her dancers promptly leave the stage.


Each day
In the morning
I wake up and I feel very excited
And I prepare myself
For the day because I want to look good

I arrive at school
And I’m not late
I say hello to my teachers
Hello to you all
Today we will learn something new
And I meet my friends

It is now 12 o’clock and I eat
After that, I play outside
With people that make me happy

My friends
My friends
When I am with you I feel very fun, fun, fun
I want to play and sing and dance together
All with you

My friends
My friends
In my days, you are like the sun, sun, sun
Close your eyes and count the stars with me:
One, two, three, four, five!

Each day
In the afternoon
I return and feel very tired
And I wish
That we could sleep even if only for 3 minutes

I learn more
And I study more
I give my homework to my teachers
And they give me more
Today we will learn something again
But I will try to stay strong

It is now 3 o’clock and I leave
At home, I tell mom
Of all that I experienced at school

My friends
My friends
When I am with you I feel very fun, fun, fun
I want to play and sing and dance together
All with you

My friends
My friends
In my days, you are like the sun, sun, sun
Close your eyes and count the stars with me:
One, two, three, four, five!

Yes, in the holidays
I enjoy the sun, the sea and wind
But I miss them
I want to play with my friends

My friends
My friends
When I am with you I feel very fun, fun, fun
I want to play and sing and dance together
All with you

My friends
My friends
In my days, you are like the sun, sun, sun
Close your eyes and count the stars with me:
One, two, three, four, five!

From the capital of Estogium, Darlington, William and The Band are a group of 12-14 year olds hoping to do well at the contest. The youngest member of the band, who is William (12) will be leading the song - what a brave lad he is. The other band members are from 13 years old to 14, and play a wide range of instruments; with one of them being the banjo! The last time Estogium participated in the Junior World Hit Festival, luck wasn't on their side, but these boys are hoping that this time, they can send Estogium up that scoreboard; a rarity these days.

William and The Band arrived in Zoloroni a few days ago to practise, with William saying that he is nervous to perform in front of many people, but he is very excited and happy he has this opportunity. RVC said that as a treat, they will go and watch the NSTT Finals and watch a match or two before flying back to Darlington.




The Mercedinian crowd cheered loudly for William and The Band as they took the stage. They were singing quite a different kind of song to the rest of the groups and soloists here. They were singing quite a novelty sounding song, and they were going to make sure that they had fun singing it. The lights went down on them and the introduction begun. They were placed right in the middle of the arena, on that large bit that comes out. The introduction was quite long though, and so the camera captured William dancing carelessly with his friends. The vocals begun to start, but it was simply those playing the instruments, but as his both got closer, William walked right in to the middle of the part of the stage he was on.

(Right beside me!)
(Right beside me!)
Sipping hot coco,
Sitting right by the fire at night, we're watching the beautiful snow fall.
The cold harsh wind, didn't bother us at all.

Arms in arms (Arms in arms!)
So warm (We're so warm!)
Well, I have to confess something... (Confess something!)
Oh-I, Oh-I, Oh-I, Oh-I care! About you so much, I can't explain!


The previous verse was full of the camera staying still, watching as William sang deeply in to the microphone. On the LED, which we may just add was placed far in into the background and so, no appearing as big as it is, was a recreation of what was spoken about. The setting was in a cabin by the fire. However, as William started to confess something, he camera slowly zoomed out, and yellow-goldish lights filled the whole arena.

(Right beside me!) I want you,
(Beside me!) Oh I love you, don't ever leave me!
(I can't take my eyes...) Off you!
(You're perfect) So, please can you...
Stay right beside me!


The Band started to get involved during the chorus, as they started to sing the bits before William would come in, almost singing over them but sounding just alright.

After this, there was another little instrumental break, and William then went back to his group of friends and started dancing along with them. A steadicam followed William on the stage as he walked up and down it. The Estogian looked as though he was really taking advantage of this instrumental time he had, dancing and prancing around the stage. But, he had his next bit coming on, and so he did get ready for that. Standing next to the banjo player, or whatever that instrument was, he sang in to the steadicam on the stage which was infront of him and the banjo player.

Once in a blue moon, I start to think about you,
I think that I want you.
So could you please, stay right beside me!

Arms in arms (Arms in arms!)
So warm (We're so warm!)
Well, I have to confess something... (Confess something!)
Oh-I, Oh-I, Oh-I, Oh-I care! About you so much, I can't explain!

(Right beside me!) I want you,
(Beside me!) Oh I love you, don't ever leave me!
(I can't take my eyes...) Off you!
(You're perfect) So, please can you...
Stay right beside me!

(I can't take my eyes...) Off you!
(You're perfect) So, please can you...
Stay right beside me!


The music suddenly changes here, and so does the staging. William went to the edge of the stage and started to sing right up in the faces of some of Junior World Hit Festival fans. They started to sing along with him - how cute.

(Oh I, Oh I Oh I... I care)
(Oh I, Oh I Oh I... I care) Right beside me, stay right here with me.
(Oh I, Oh I Oh I... I care)
(Oh I, Oh I Oh I... I care)
Oh I, Oh I Oh I... I care

Oh-I, Oh-I, Oh-I, Oh-I care!


Suddenly as the music started to gear up again, a large Estogian flag dropped from the lighting rigs at the top of the stage, covering the LED wall. The decision for why they chose the flag to be draped across the arena is something you would have to ask RVC officials, but it certainly added to the patriotic flare nations should have when they represent their national country.

(Right beside me!) I want you,
(Beside me!) Oh I love you, don't ever leave me!
(I can't take my eyes...) Off you!
(You're perfect) So, please can you...
Stay right beside me!

(Right beside me!) I want you,
(Beside me!) Oh I love you, don't ever leave me!
(I can't take my eyes...) Off you!
(You're perfect) So, please can you...
Stay right beside me!


The music soon faded out and the crowd started applauding then for it. "Merci teis, thank you, Mercedini!" William thanked the audience before the band all did a salute and bowed, ready for yhe next proceedings on the wonderful stage.

Hopefully they can do better than the last Senior and Junior World Hit Festival

Backstory:

CBC announced that Cleaca, a Togonistani Overseas Territory with about 1200 permanent residents living there, is ready for their debut in Junior World Hit Festival.

Image
Elenola Anahira & Abigail Apikaira


Elenola Anahira is a 15-year old child actress and hobby musician from Togonistan. She has played in a few movies as well as been part of a youth model agency. Few months ago, she made a song titled ''Hiahia Ki Te Kanikani'' with her schoolmates Abigail and Karlos. When they uploaded it to Youtube, the song got over million views during first two weeks.

Abigail Apikaira is a 15-year old schoolgirl. She was born in Cleaca, but currently studies and resides in Togonistan. After their song got famous, it also got noticed by a local Cleacan radio broadcaster, who took contact with Abigail and offered them a chance to send their song to CBC (Cleacan Broadcasting Corporation). After she discussed it with Elenola, they decided to go ahead and see what happens. The folks at CBC also liked the song, and even though they hadn't planned to participate in JWHF at first, they decided it wouldn't be a bad idea to offer the girls a chance to represent Cleaca.

Their song ''Hiahia Ki Te Kanikani'' is a cheerful party song about dancing. Lyrics were written by Elenola Anahira, and music was made by Elenola's classmate Karlos Foleti, who claims that making the tune in his computer took him less than a hour.

Performance:
Red text - sung by Elenola
Blue text - sung by Abigail
Green text - sung by both of the girls at the same time


Stage is pitch black as the music starts playing.

Oo-Hoo
Yee-yee-yee-ee


As the music gets to 0:16 mark, stage eventually lights up. Elenola and Abigail, who are wearing crazy-looking Hatsune Miku-ish outfits can be seen jumping around on the stage. Both of the girls have a little microphone attached to their headset. At the background, led screens are showing a colorful video. On the stage, there are some disco lights flashing aswell. When it's time to sing, girls stop jumping around and Elenola points her finger at the crowd while moving her hips, singing at the same time.

Hiahia ki te kanikani
Hiahia ki te kanikani
Whai ahau
Kia kanikani tahi

I want to be a dancer
I want to be a dancer
Follow me
Let's dance together


Girls put their backs against each other and camera shows a close-up shot of them while Abigail is singing, ending her line with a little wink.

Haere mai hei hoa mokua
Wareware ki te katoa
Whai ahau
Kia kanikani tahi

Come and be my friend
Forget about everyone else
Follow me
Let's dance together


Oh-la-la


Girls start jumping around on the stage again and both of them make their way to the either side of the stage. They start moving on the catwalks with their jumpy movement. Camera is rotating, showing both of them every once in a while as well as taking a few shots at the audience.

Kanikani
Ao katoa te po
Kanikani
Hui tahi aku hoa
Kanikani
Nekehia to tinani
Kanikani
Kia kanikani tahi

Dance
All day and night
Dance
Together my friends
Dance
Move your body
Dance
Let's dance together


Girls keep on jumping around, eventually making their way to the small island in front.

Oo-oo-oa-oa
Oo-oo-oa-oa-a
Oo-oo-oa-oa
Oo-oo-oa-oa-a


Girls have reached to the island and lean forward while singing and moving their knees a bit at the same time.

Hiahia ki te kanikani
Hiahia ki te kanikani
Whai ahau
Kia kanikani tahi

I want to be a dancer
I want to be a dancer
Follow me
Let's dance together


Girls stand next to each other and both of them show a quick ''victory sign'' with their fingers.

Oh-wa-ohwa-ah


Girls start walking at the edge of the island and give a few claps to some happy fans in the audience pit. At the same time, their never stop at least somewhat moving their body to the rhythm of the music.

Tangohia toku ringa-a-a
Tatou ka haere ka koa
Whai ahau
Kia kanikani tahi

Take my hand
Let's go and have some fun
Follow me
Let's dance together


Girls turn around and start making their way back to the big stage. Elenola is jumping around on one catwalk, while Abigail is on the other one.

Haere mai
Kanikani
Ao katoa te po
Kanikani
Hui tahi aku hoa
Kanikani
Nekehia to tinani
Kanikani
Kia kanikani tahi

Come and
Dance
All day and night
Dance
Together my friends
Dance
Move your body
Dance
Let's dance together


During a instrumental part, they keep jumping around, but eventually make their way back to the big stage. When it's time to sing again, their put their backs together and bend their knees a bit.

Kanikani
Ao katoa te po
Kanikani
Hui tahi aku hoa
Kanikani
Nekehia to tinani
Kanikani
Kia kanikani tahi

Dance
All day and night
Dance
Together my friends
Dance
Move your body
Dance
Let's dance together


Girls start jumping around and dancing a strange dance.

Oo-oo-oa-oa
Oo-oo-oa-oa-a
Oo-oo-oa-oa
Oo-oo-oa-oa-a


Girls jump around a bit more and constantly point their fingers both at audience as well as a camera.

Haere mai
Kanikani
Ao katoa te po
Kanikani
Hui tahi aku hoa
Kanikani
Nekehia to tinani
Kanikani
Kia kanikani tahi

Come and
Dance
All day and night
Dance
Together my friends
Dance
Move your body
Dance
Let's dance together


For the last verse, they stand next to each other again and lean their bodies from one way to other.

Kanikani
Ao katoa te po
Kanikani
Hui tahi aku hoa
Kanikani
Nekehia to tinani
Kanikani
Kia kanikani tahi

Dance
All day and night
Dance
Together my friends
Dance
Move your body
Dance
Let's dance together


As the song ends, Elenola and Abigail cover their mouth with a hand and start jumping around. An expression of happiness and joy can be seen on their faces as they scream a big ''Thank you!'' to the audience before leaving

It's been a long time coming, but the Junior World Hit Festival has finally made a return, but this time it's coming from our capital of Zoloroni, meaning who ever sings for us has plenty of support coming from the crowd. After Meia Dobrani gave Mercedini a debut bronze medal back in Fauligekaikobu, ENM have chose young singer songwriter Elia Vinci to represent his nation on home soil, hoping he can go one better than Meia in the 4th edition of the Junior World Hit Festival

With the MRC.CUBE the host venue for the contest, Elia will hope to get the performance right on the night to complete a WHF double for the nation following M'folo Asante's victory in Gralicna. He will sing 'Lullaby' an up-tempo dance song which was originally set to be performed as an acoustic song, before ENM drafted in Rhythm DMZ's Mateo Dommazoni and song contest legend Francisco Gabrinelli to give the song it's pop-dance flavour which will be sung at the contest. Can Elia win on home turf? We will see when he performs live at the final in Zoloroni.


The crowd cheer wildly as the Mercedinian postcard draws to a close, meaning the song's commencement is only seconds away. The first notes of the song chime around the stadium which only makes the crowd grow louder as they will their lad on to give a good performance. The LED screens project a starry night, much light the contest logo background, which bathes the stage in a deep blue with specs of white shining through. A silver crescent moon sits in the centre of the stage, with Elia sitting down on it, facing the audience. As the intro carries on, the central camera in the arena moves forward at a steady and consistent pace. As the vocals kick in, the camera changes to a shot of Elia as he looks into it to start the song.

La bella notte
Le stelle brillano per illuminare il mio mondo
Ma quando riposo
Il peso del mondo sollevato da me
Vado da solo per esplorare la mia mente
Quindi cantami via

(the beautiful night)
(the stars shine to light up my world)
(but even when I rest)
(the weight of the world is lifted from me)
(I go on my own to explore my mind)
(so sing me away)


He climbs down from the silver crescent moon and onto the stage floor where he walks forward to the front of the stage. He cracks a smile as he is singing thanks to the home crowd clapping along to the now familiar song within his nation, but he carries on singing to the camera as white streaks of light fly across the LED screen, simulating shooting stars. The beat of the drums being to kick in more at this point, with the more frequent streaks of light on the LED screen combined with the flashing white lights around the stage building the intensity of the song before the music stops, the lights fade out and the camera zooms in on Elia's face to say the last couple of words before the main chorus.

La luna e le stelle si scontrano d’uno
Metti tutte le mie preoccupazioni dietro
Tira le coperte, disegna le tende e dormirò
L'unica cosa che voglio
Quella dolce canzone

(the moon and the start collide as one)
(put all life’s worries behind me)
(pull the covers, draw the curtains and ill go)
(the only thing I want)
(is that sweet song)


As the song moves from Mercedinian into English, a teenage girl moves into view wearing a white flowing dress and performing a delicate and flowing routine around the stage floor as Elia continues to sing in the foreground. A couple of backing singers accompany Elia with the vocals, but aren't visible on stage. Beams of light stay static and shine onto the stage floor and the front portion of the audience. The piano chords kick in as the song begins to build in intensity for a second time in the song. With the central camera capturing perfectly the amount of Mercedinian flags which are being waved in the front portion of the audience. For the final couple of lines, the camera flies backwards, encompassing the entire arena within it's shot, before the beat drops and the music kicks in.

Hey, papi, gonna rest my eyes
Sing me your lullaby
Hey, papi, can’t sleep without my
Lullaby
In my mind, thoughts have fallen as the day turns to night
So sing me your lullaby
Just sing me your lullaby


The camera begins from the back of the arena and sweeps forward to the front, making it to the front at the lights move around the stage and Elia points to the camera as it sweeps round. The stars on the LED flicker even more, but are more sensitive compared to the white beams of light around the arena. The girl twirling around the stage stops to the side of the main vocalist as he sings to the girl, they lock eyes as Elia's glisten as the lights hit them. They both part ways as the girl twirls off camera while Elia walks to front and sings into the central camera, zoomed in to see his face and body.

Lulla, lulla, lulla, yeah
Sing me your lullaby
Lulla, lulla, lulla, yeah
Sing me your lullaby


The song returns to normal as the white lights recede to leave just the stage bathed in a deep navy blue night sky. The camera moves up onto the stage as Elia steps back to make space in front on himself for the camera to go. He sings into the camera as he sings while jigging to the beat of the song, the audience in the background are clapping along once again. There is a slight change to the music with the LEDs reflecting, flickering to a reverse image of the former night sky, meaning it flickers to a white night with black stars.

La bella notte
Mi riempie la testa di meraviglia
E alla fine
Vado via nell'abisso di mezzanotte
Bene, ma prometti che sarai al mio fianco
Stai vicino, caro
(the beautiful night)
(it fills my head with wonder)
(and at the end)
(I float away into the midnight abyss)
(okay, but promise me you'll be by my side)
(stay close, my dear)


The girl returns as she twirls back onto the stage as Elia walks back to meet her to spin and hold her while they elegantly dance across the stage. The home crowd begins to cheer as the performers immerse themselves into the song. The drumbeat kicks in as the girl spins furiously around Elia has he sings. White lights zip across the arena as the camera moved in from the audience, capturing the waving flags and the bouncing of the audience. Elia walks to the side of the stage as the verse ends.

La luna e le stelle si scontrano d’uno
Metti tutte le mie preoccupazioni dietro
Tira le coperte, disegna le tende e dormirò
L'unica cosa che voglio
Quella dolce canzone

(the moon and the start collide as one)
(put all life’s worries behind me)
(pull the covers, draw the curtains and ill go)
(the only thing I want)
(is that sweet song)


As the lead chorus approaches, Elia walks down the steps to make his way onto the long runway while singing. The length of the runway means it takes him the entirety of the verse to get to end and the diamond island at the other end. As he walks past the audience, they wave their flags and offer their hand which Elia accepts, crouching down as he walks to hi-five the audience before making it to the end and singing into the central camera

Hey, papi, gonna rest my eyes
Sing me your lullaby
Hey, papi, can’t sleep without my
Lullaby
In my mind, thoughts have fallen as the day turns to night
So sing me your lullaby
Just sing me your lullaby


When Elia makes it to the connected island, the beat kicks in and the song increase in tempo, whipping the home crowd into a bit of frenzy. The lights zipped around the arena for one final time. The central camera zoomed in on Elia before changing to an axel shot where camera sweeped in before moving away to the side of the main performer. The camera moves upon to the island and orbits round Elia before moving away to leave Elia all alone on the stage with only the flickering of the LED floor of the island.

Hey, papi, gonna rest my eyes
Sing me your lullaby
Hey, papi, can’t sleep without my
Lullaby
In my mind, thoughts have fallen as the day turns to night
So sing me your lullaby
Just sing me your lullaby


The white lights return, but golden confetti is sprayed into the air and rains down onto the island and the surrounding audience. The central camera manages to capture Elia singing into it with the confetti somewhat obscuring its view. The audience are waving their flags to the tune of the song as Elia makes his final moves on the island. He puts his arm into the air to finish the performance, to raptures from the Mercedinian performances.

Lulla, lulla, lulla, yeah
Sing me your lullaby
Lulla, lulla, lulla, yeah
Sing me your lullaby


The crowd are on their feet for their representative as he takes a bow and blows kisses to the crowd as he smiles to thank the audience. "Grazij Mercedini, andiamo!", the crowd is chanting his name as he waves to the upper stands before walking back across the runway to make way for the next act. A transition is made before the postcard appears for the next nation.

Gemma Anderson, a 12 years old girl, is a singer from Dromvarld, Amouraland. She is notably known as the winner of Lilla Idol season 3. Her self-made song, "Lönterne" is really special to her because she made it for her father who died shortly after she won Lilla Idol because of cancer.

She will perform alone with a beautiful white dress.. Her staging is quite simple. She will perform on a boat and the background will be beautiful sea at the night with a big moon. She brings a lantern next to her.

The song starts...

Ivön win I alöne
I nöe thou you helj
Lo lönterne thou you stinje
Keptö wirm alt dale time


On th raetjing söi
Moi böatte kipt sailling tö you
Tot I willle nevekt filt alöne
Lo lönterne tö alwaisjk
Bilöiv...


Ivön win I alöne
I nöe thou you helj
Lo lönterne thou you stinje
Keptö wirm alt dale time


On th raetjing söi
Moi böatte kipt sailling tö you
Tot I willle nevekt filt alöne
Lo lönterne tö alwaisjk
Bilöiv...


Sound of thunder is heard and seen at the background. Suddenly a lantern, that is next to her, lights up.

Even when I'm alone,
I know that you're near to me
The lantern that you shine
Keeps me warm all the time


On the raging blue sea,
My boat keeps sailing to you
But I will never feel alone
The lantern tells me to always
Believe...


She stops singing, then she reads a poem to the audience while the music is still on. The lantern then flies away, but not so far because it is tied to the boat.

That you will come to me, Dad.
But don't worry,
The boat and the lantern will guide me to you
So we can build a new world
Full of rainbows
Together


She cries at the end, then say "Merci. Tack. Thank you everyone."

When it came time to thinking about the Izmeduan entry for the 4th Junior World Hit Festival, RTI were at a crossroads much like its previous incarnations. RTI was already invested in other projects, so a skeleton team was formed consisting of those who were committed to the JWHF project the first time around when the country made its non-competitive debut in Bloodbath Generation. Luckily, there was a swelling of artists (both children and adult) that were interested in performing Izmedu, and the RTI team were forced to pick between two compelling packages. Ultimately, a very late switch was made in the game, even thought RTI were already committed to another Junior entry.

This switch came in the form of 14 year old Jelena Maricic, termed as a prodigious thespian and also a Mousiki native. She comes into the contest with a song produced by former WorldVision entrant, Marija Jurisic. Jelena herself was largely introduced to the music world by taking part in amateur school productions in Mousiki, taking supporting roles in elementary adaptations of famous Izmeduan musicals at the age of 10. That was her platform to impress, and ultimately, she gained some media traction for displaying a performance prowess that professional Izmeduan singers (the likes of Marija Jurisic, Terezija Novak, Anamarija Lubina and etc.) found comparable to their own. Supporting roles led to starring roles immediately, and when it came time for the Junior World Hit Festival to be planned, her name floated off to the top of the list immediately.

Her fame led her to come in contact with former WorldVision entrant, Marija Jurisic. This was part of a plan to jumpstart Jelena's singing and acting career by placing her first international exposure in the JWHF. How it happened? Marija viewed a video of one of Jelena's solo performance of a local Mousikian musical, of which she sang and danced on her own one of its notoriously difficult supporting solos, “The Water's Requiem.” This led Marija to contact Jelena's parents, and it was history from there. Jelena knew how to dance and grace the stage, considering that much of her musical performance involved a ballet-style dance. Marija offered singing and production support.

Jelena, working with Marija, produced “El faur,” the resulting product of months of mentorship and training, and the project came up somewhat short in the initial selection. However, conflicts with the original singer, Sandra Lalic, forced Sandra to withdraw uncomfortably late in the process. Thus, Jelena accepted the offer to represent Izmedu in the 4th edition of the Junior World Hit Festival. Despite the murky process behind the entry selection, Jelena and her team were confident they could pull off a performance and honor Melanija's 2nd place in the previous contest.


Stage lights billowed down to the center in preparation for the Izmeduan entry, the cubeMRC's interior falling into pitch black darkness. Jelena was centered at the main stage, a little bit nervous as she would performing the song largely on her lonesome. After a few seconds of cheering, the music started, a rumbling and low flute sound flowing through the stage as the camera was at an overhead view, with Jelena standing at the stage with her head face down. The stage lights were then configured to a dark, haunting green, with the screens showing sublime scenes from the Izmeduan wilderness; primary focused on showing flower fields. Then, just a second before the vocals commenced, a spotlight shone on Jelena as the camera focused on a close up of her face, and she put the microphone near her mouth and began to sing...

Ganerim do la prorida. Sentirem la-aria
Ju sam jart poput la stabla. Plesam ću cauc conteb


Once the camera was on her, Jelena's face perked up as she commenced her singing, taking on a largely traditional register for the first two lines of the verse. The flower fields on the screens were largely lilting to the music, shifting scenes from there to other parts of the Izmeduan wilderness (such as a nature reserve, random shots of wildlife, and a waterfall). A small wind effect was displayed, causing her hair to slightly flay about in the wind as Jelena was practicing a technique of holding her free hand close to her head in order to pull off her current register. The camera zoomed out as the two lines progressed, before zooming out completely at the end of the second line.

El sauncevo svitlo sjaji na nuestra biala svita dilmo
El sauncevo svitlo teče na-el-tlo du andu korijenje


Beats were added to the song as the stage flashed white, and Jelena began to perform some light choreography to match the song, stepping back three steps to match the stuttered rhythm of the song. She made arm movement to and from her body as her spotlight and the cubeMRC's interior turned yellow, as the screen graphics transformed from the flower fields to an artistic graphic of a rising sun. Each arm movement she made almost looked as if she was causing the sun to rise and shine, with her leading the sun rays (errant spotlights on the stage) towards the audience.

El faur, el faur, biala živ, rastiš stasit, rastiš cete
El faur, el faur; biala svita, disati ćeš con-čistim-slobodom


The camera maintained a dynamic overhead view at the start of roaring chorus, with Jelena continuing her light choreography that kept the focus squarely on her singing. On the floor appeared a timelapse of soil turning into a flower field, emphasized heavily by the further development of the sun artwork that appeared on the screens. Jelena moved around the stage, keeping her arm up as she emphasized the anthemic qualities of the song, encouraging the Mercedinian audience to dance and celebrate nature with her. During the instrumental interlude, she hummed the melody of the song. At the end of the chorus, she was at the audience-left runway, preparing herself to move to the central island.

Entrurim ove divline, vidim el-ufanje
El nuf faur daleko i oci vide el buducnost
La svita energija pruža nas nuestra samo dom i azil
El sauncevo svitlo teče na-el-tlo du andu korijenje


Throughout this verse, the sun graphics transitioned back to the green flower fields from earlier, with the sun now being a far more apparent appearances as the rays shined down on the billowing fields at the bottom. She spent much of the verse in a slow trek to the connected stage island, with the camera taking occasional overhead shots or side views. At the second half of the verse, Jelena increased her initially slow pace as the lights flashed white to the recurring beats. She had one arm raised in order to get the audience's pumped, and by the end of the verse, she was at the cubeMRC's stage island.

El faur, el faur, biala živ, rastiš stasit, rastiš cete
El faur, el faur; biala svita, disati ćeš con-čistim-slobodom


The flower fields disappeared to make way for the artistic sun graphics, and Jelena performed much the same choreography from earlier, but added extra flashes to account for the smaller stage space. She spent much of the chorus near the audience, singing to them and extending her head especially dirng the 'el faur' parts. Additionally, the stage screens once began to display various images of flowers at various stages of growth. Through the chorus, the camera mostly did a wide span swoop of the stage, emphasizing Jelena's solo presence on the stage.

At the instrumental interlude, where the backing would consist of just the song's beats, this was where Jelena's dancing was put to the test. The camera was centered just on her as she was standing at the very center of the island, she began to cross both of her arms together and did a tribal-like dance. Then, as the beat progressively began to get more intricate, with her choreography almost bordering on breakdancing. The interlude ended with Jelena's free arm pointing towards the ceiling.

El faur, el faur, biala živ, rastiš stasit, rastiš cete
El faur, el faur; biala svita, disati ćeš con-čistim-slobodom


At the first line, Jelena did not move as she focused on re-centering her vocals after the more intensive dance routine she did. The instrumentation was simply just guitar, as Jelena stood still for most of it. Then, at the second line, it was proceedings as normal as Jelena once again moved about on the central island, as she engaged the crowd to an even higher level by high-fiving some audience members. Then, when she finished singing the last line, she carried the song's outro with a vocal ad lib that motioned for power, with her having to hold the microphone with both hands. Then at that, the entry was complete.

Jelena waved to the Mercedinian audience and shouted, "Hvala Mercedini!"

I shout to nature. I feel the air.
I am strong like the trees. I will dance here with you
The sun's light shines on the beautiful world we share
The sun's light flows to the soil, where it takes root

Flowers, flowers, beautiful life, you will grow tall, you will rise
Flowers, flowers, beautiful world, you will breathe with pure freedom

I enter these wildlands, I see hope
The new flowers as far as the eyes can see the future
The world's energy provides us our only home and shelter
The sun's light flows to the soil, where it takes root

Flowers, flowers, beautiful life, you will grow tall, you will rise
Flowers, flowers, beautiful world, you will breathe with pure freedom

Flowers, flowers, beautiful life, you will grow tall, you will rise
Flowers, flowers, beautiful world, you will breathe with pure freedom

The Rainbow Unicorns consist of Aslı Görkem (age 7, vocals), Clara Donevski (age 8, bass), and Emily Tanaka (age 9, guitar). They are accompanied by Michael Mitchell (age 15, drums). They were school friends who each have a great passion for music and having fun. Michael Mitchell is a 15 year old who is a family friend of Emily Tanaka, and was chosen as a session musician for this performance, playing the drums. The Rainbow Unicorns became popular after a video on the Internet of them playing together went viral.

Blue: Aslı Görkem

The stage is lit as Michael Mitchell starts banging the drums. He gets down an upbeat beat and soon The Rainbow Unicorns join. Clara Donevski joins in with the bass guitar, playing a short solo. After the short snippet of a solo, Emily Tanaka joins in with the electric guitar, as she plays a quick guitar lick. Everyone has a smile on their face, because despite the large audience, they are still having fun. Aslı Görkem starts singing in a high-pitched voice.

One boring day I was so bored, bored as can be
I didn't want to do anything, not even watch TV
But then I went to the theme park, I wasn't even bored
I loved all the rides but my favourite one's so cool
It's the


Aslı and Clara harmonize with Emily during the chorus, while the coloured strobe lights go crazy. A large group of kids rush onto the stage cheering, and the audience cheers in response. The kids dance and have fun on both sides of the stage.

La la la, la la la!
La la la!
It's the merry-go-round!
La la la, la la la!
La la la!
It's the merry-go-round!


The strobe lights turn off after the chorus, leaving only the regular lights. Aslı is back to singing solo, with her band playing in the background.

No more feelings of boredom, they've all washed away
I'm glad I went to the theme park, it was such a fun day
Every ride was wonderful, each a different fun
But you know, the merry-go-round was the very best part


Emily is given the spotlight as she plays a badass guitar solo. The strobe lights are back and are all flashing. Aslı dances and high fives some of the kids onstage. Some glitter is dropped at the end of the guitar solo. The three girls' voice blend harmoniously, with only Michael playing the drums. The kids get together and form a circle and start to spin slowly, gradually increasing speed.

La la la, la la la
La la la
It's the merry-go-round
La la la, la la la
(Seou'll sevove ohe atly-karound)
La la la (Alget hazeady)
It's the merry-go-round (içor ohe eğlun)
La la la, la la la (Seou'll sevove ohe atly-karound)[Yirmi kez, elli kez]
La la la (Alget hazeady) [yüzbir kere]
It's the merry-go-round (içor ohe eğlun)
La la la, la la la (Seou'll sevove ohe atly-karound) [Yirmi kez, elli kez]
La la la (Alget hazeady) [yüzbir kere]
It's the merry-go-round (içor ohe eğlun)


Emily and Clara start playing their instruments again, but continue harmonizing with Aslı. The kids are spinning really fast now.

La la la, la la la!
La la la!
It's the merry-go-round!
La la la, la la la!
La la la!
It's the merry-go-round!


As the song ends, the kids fall down and stop spinning. The audience cheers and applauds at the cute and amazing performance. Aslı says "thank you very much" in a very sweet way, to which the audience responds with "awwww". The lights fade and the stage is prepared for the next act.

(You'll love the merry-go-round)
(Get ready)
(for the fun)
(You'll love the merry-go-round) [Twenty times, fifty times]
(Get ready) [one hundred and one times]
(for the fun)
(You'll love the merry-go-round) [Twenty times, fifty times]
(Get ready) [one hundred and one times]
(for the fun)

Backstory:

Rebelz is a new rock band from Togonistan made by schoolmates aged 13-15. The band won a local Togonistani School Band competition, which, among other awards, gave them the right to represent their nation in Junior World Hit Festival.

Rebelz consists of following members:

Image Artur Galapago is a 15-year old Togoni who started singing at the age of 10. He attended his school's music club, but lasted there barely for half a year before leaving because he didn't find it interesting enough. Instead, Artur started his own Youtube channel, where he started singing karaoke. Right now, his channel has about 10 000 subscribers and he is still constantly posting videos of his singing. Artur has learned singing on his own without a professional trainer for the past five years, and a year ago, he and his best friend Efrem decided to start a band.
Image Emma Lapua-Foleti is 13 years old. She has been attending piano lessons for the past six years and has won multiple awards from different multi-school competitions. Emma enjoys playing piano, as she says, it ''makes her forget about everything else and focus only on that one specific thing.'' When Artur and Efrem started a band, they were desperately looking for a keyboardist, when Eric suddenly suggested to talk to Emma. Although she was unsure about joining at first, eventually, Emma decided that it might be interesting to try something different for a change.
Image Efrem Tenekaju is 15 years old. He has been attending guitar lessons in his school since the age of 7. When he was 12 years old, his uncle Gojou Teruatsu, guitarist in a metal band Thunder Brigade, started giving him additional lessons about electric guitar. He learned quickly and although he can play both electric as well as acoustic guitar quite well, he prefers the first option. Efrem was the one who came to and idea of starting a band, so he spoke to his friend Artur about it, who liked the idea. Among other things, Efrem is also the one composing music for the band.
Image Eric Selepulu is 14 years old. His joining was somewhat of a strange decision, considering the fact that, unlike other members, he had never played any instrument before. However, as soon as he heard about his friends starting a band, he wanted to join really badly. Artur and Efrem thought about it for a bit, before deciding that Eric could be a drummer. Although the boys did not think it would work out very well, Eric proved them wrong and learned very quickly.

So far, Rebelz have five songs in their repertoire. While three of them are covers of other famous songs, two of them are their own original compositions. One of the latter, a song titled ''Another Day At School'', is the one they will be performing in JWHF. Idea for a song came from band's leader Artur, who has certain difficulties in his math lessons. One day, he felt really frustrated due to failing a test, so he went home and wrote the lyrics for a song. When he showed his writing to other band members, they thought it would be a nice idea to make it an actual song. So, that's how it went. Efrem took Artur's lyrics and composed the music. Now, they are here, ready to perform it.

Performance:

Band is standing on the stage with their instruments. They're all wearing rather rebellious outfits. Artur is wearing a leather jacket with a lot of piercings and a Rebelz band logo on his back, white T-shirt, black jeans and white sneakers. Emma is wearing a black top, black leggings and black sneakers. Efrem is wearing a black leather jacket, black T-shirt with band's logo on it, blue jeans and white sneakers.. Eric is wearing a white tank top, black jeans and white sneakers. On the front of Eric's drum kit, there is also band's logo.

Rebelz have formed a diamond shape formation on a small island in the middle of the audience. The band starts playing, while camera takes a close-up shot of Artur, who is holding an electric guitar. He starts playing the guitar, although, if a viewer pays attention, they can notice that Artur is actually just pretending to play, while the only guitar actually being played is the one that belongs to Efrem, who (from the viewer's point of view) is standing on the right side of the diamond formation. Artur opens his mouth and starts singing:

It's not easy being there,
Crack them books and wait for break,
Nah nah nah, its just not fair!
I'm stuck at school.


Camera shows a high view of the stage, and viewers can see that the led screen floor is also showing their band's logo. Then, the camera rotates around the stage, passing every band members. They all flirt with the camera a bit as it passes, until it reaches Eric at the back, who puts his tongue out and does a goofy face.

Sit like a fool!
With my crew!
and when at class I have to sit,
Then I feel I'm gonna tilt!
I'm going crazy.


Camera shows a quick shot of Efrem and Emma, who are acting as backing singers for Artur. Then, camera shows a Artur again, who is looking at the camera and is doing a little eyebrow movement.

Nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, ney,
the long math lesson's not okay!
it's not easy being there, I'm going crazy.


Camera takes a quick shot into the crowd and shows two young male fans with Togonistan's flag. One of them notices a camera filming them and puts his thumb up while smiling. Then, camera shows a close shot of Artur, who is tilting his head a bit and is flirting with camera.

Nah, nah, nah, it's not Fair!
nah, nah, ney, i just don't care,
or do i feel lame, for being lazy,
cuz im going crazy.


Camera rotates around the stage again and shows a quick shot of Efrem and Emma as they sing their lines, before approaching Artur from the back and eventually showing his face.

No, its not easy being there,
Hurry up! (Efrem)
You're late to the class! (Emma)
Nag, nag, nag, its so not fair, i'm going crazy!


Artur does a quick eyebrow movement and smiles before stepping away and switching positions with Efrem, who steps forward and starts his guitar solo. Smoke machines start doing their job and cover the stage in smoke from both sides, hiding rest of the band members into cloud until Efrem finishes his guitar solo.

Artur switches places with Efrem again and steps towards the microphone to sing the fast part of the song in Togoni-Maori. He is holding the microphone with both of his hands, while his guitar is just hanging attached to his body. Smoke cloud starts fading out and by the time Artur is halfway done with his verse, it has faded out completely.

He maha nga mea e kore au e pai!
Pāngarau, akoranga e kore ahau e pai
waiat waiat waiat noa mo te ngahau,
noho tika ana, haere na ki palau,
e waiata ana i roto i te puoro,
he ataahua te akomanga tuoro
Nga mahi whare, mahi kura,
ehara i te mea tika, fuka kura


Suddenly, camera shows a high view of the stage from a distance and lights in the ceiling do four quick flashes after a certain period of time.

Cuz, when im furious i don't care!
I skip my class cuz it's not fair!
When at home, they wrangle at me, I'm going crazy!


Camera does a quick shot into the crowd, before closing up on Artur again, who is pretending to play the guitar again.

No it's not easy being me,
i dunno why they can not see,
just how hard it is to be.
I'm going crazy.


Camera shows close-ups of every band member. Efrem is looking deep into the camera and smiles while playing his guitar, Emma notices the camera and blushes a bit, before turning her eyes to the keyboard. Eric is very concentrated on his drummer duties, until he notices the camera in front of him. He does another goofy face, before camera shows Artur again.

Sit like a fool!
With my crew!
and when at class I have to sit,
Then I feel I'm gonna tilt!
I'm going crazy.


Artur is looking deeply into the camera and is nodding his head while singing.

Sit in my school!
With my crew!
and when at class I have to sit,
Then I feel I'm gonna tilt!
I'm going crazy.


Camera takes another high view at the stage, while the band is performing final part of their song.

Nah, nah, nah, nah, nah, ney,
the long math lesson's not okay!
it's not easy being there, I'm going crazy.


Band stops playing and Artur puts his right fist up into the sky. Camera shows Efrem and Emma, who are both smiling and looking at each other from the corner of their eye, before turning to Eric, who has stood up on top of his chair. Eric takes a small battle horn out of his pocket and blows into it, ending the song with a rather questionable note.

Rebelz start laughing and wave to the crowd, before leaving the stage

Backstory:

For the past few months, Kalmarluntija Television has seen a decline in their viewing numbers, especially regarding the younger audience. With this in mind, they came to an idea of buying rights for broadcasting JWHF. Once they were done with that, all they needed was to find someone represent them.

Eventually, KT decided to make an offer to Björn & Erik, a junior pop-rap duo topping the local radio and Youtube charts. KT gave them free hands to do their performance how they want to, as their goal is not really winning but just trying to bring their young viewers back.

Image
Björn Gunnarsson and Erik Blomgren


Björn and Erik are Kalmarlundian child stars and very popular at their home nation. For JWHF, they wrote an all-new song titled ''Superserien'', named after the second highest level of Kalmarlundian football league. Their explanation for the somewhat odd choice was like this: ''We take JWHF as our own little Superserien. We participate against a lot of WHF veteran nations here, but still, it's Junior WHF, so it's not Elitserien. It's Superserien.''

Björn and Erik dedicate their song to their fans back home who are watching the competition on TV.

Performance:

Björn and Erik are on the stage, wearing yellow football jerseys with their names written on their backs. Besides that, they are also wearing blue jeans and white sneakers. Erik is also wearing a black tilted cap. As the music starts playing, they put their hands up and start clapping them while moving forward. Suddenly, when it's time to sing, they jump into the air and start moving around on stage, jumping up and down.

Now come and join us
Dance, sing and just go crazy
Waving the flag for you
This is our Superserien

Now come and join us
Get up and don't be lazy
We need you too
This is our Superserien


Björn bends his knees a bit and starts walking around the stage while rapping, holding microphone with one hand and doing some gestures with another hand. Meanwhile, Erik is just standing there and moving his hands from left to right.

Säg nu och skrik som kreisi
Hela vägen från Zoloroni till Fågelby
Känn trycket här, känna passion här
Representerar vår nation ikväll här

Now chant and scream like crazy
All the way from Zoloroni to Fågelby
Feel the pressure here, feel the passion here
Representing our nation tonight in here


When it's Erik's turn to rap, he raises his left arm up and starts walking forward. Camera takes a close-up shot of him and Erik starts throwing some hand sings at the camera.

Nu är det dags att höja upp händerna
Ringer alla, hej vad händer?
Writing our names in books of history
Performing tonight here for yours truly

Now time to raise your hands up
Calling everyone, hey what's up?
Writing our names in books of history
Performing tonight here for yours truly


Boys start jumping up and down again whole throwing up some random hand signs every once in a while.

Now come and join us
Dance, sing and just go crazy
Waving the flag for you
This is our Superserien

Now come and join us
Get up and don't be lazy
We need you too
This is our Superserien


Björn bends his knees again and starts rapping.

Gå med, vakna och kom här
Gå med oss och känna värmen här
Kom dansa med mig, kom och sjunga med mig
Se till att Kalmarlund är här med mig

Join us, wake up and come here
Join us and feel the heat here
Come dance with me, come sing with me
Making sure Kalmarlund is here with me



Camera turns to Erik, who also bends his knees and walks around while rapping and throwing up some hand signs.

Nu är det dags att höja upp händerna
Ringer alla, hej vad händer?
Writing our names in books of history
Performing tonight here for yours truly

Now time to raise your hands up
Calling everyone, hey what's up?
Writing our names in books of history
Performing tonight here for yours truly


Boys start jumping around on the stage, bending down every once in a while and giving a few hand claps to the audience.

Now come and join us
Dance, sing and just go crazy
Waving the flag for you
This is our Superserien

Now come and join us
Get up and don't be lazy
We need you too
This is our Superserien

Now come and join us
Dance, sing and just go crazy
Waving the flag for you
This is our Superserien

Now come and join us
Get up and don't be lazy
We need you too
This is our Superserien


Boys start moving towards each other, but suddenly make a sharp turn and now towards the camera instead.

Vår Superserien
Vår Superserien
Detta är vår Superserien
Vår Superserien
Vi trycker på barriären
Detta är vår Superserien


Our Superserien
Our Superserien
This is our Superserien
Our Superserien
We push the barrier
This is our Superserien


Boys turn around, run a few meters and do a frontflip, before turning around again to sing the final part of their song.

Now come and join us
Dance, sing and just go crazy
Waving the flag for you
This is our Superserien

Now come and join us
Get up and don't be lazy
We need you too
This is our Superserien

Now come and join us
Dance, sing and just go crazy
Waving the flag for you
This is our Superserien

Now come and join us
Get up and don't be lazy
We need you too
This is our Superserien


When the song ends, Björn and Erik receive an applause from the audience. Björn shouts ''Tack så mycket'' to the microphone and Erik throws up another hand sign before they're both leaving the stage
