jESC 2014: Armenia – Betty – Children of the world



In about a month and a half, the Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2014 will start (this will happen on Saturday, 15th November 2014 and it will be held in Marsa, Malta (officially, though, the host will be Malta as a whole. Marsa is only the location of the venue), presented solely (a first in jESC) by Moira Delia)

On Monday, 30th September 2014, delegations from the 16 participating countries (the highest number of countries for a jESC edition since 2007, when 17 countries took part in a single bound) came to Malta for, between other duties, the delivery of informations regarding their own entries and also knowing more details about the contest

From this moment on, I’ll give my opinion on each of the 16 songs and that’s going to be made randomly – since the actual draw will only be known during the jESC 2014 week (my opinion could change, though, after the release of the jESC 2014 Official CD and the live performance in jESC 2014)

And all begins with Armenia, who has sent a upbeat dance entry in armenian and english about friendship titled “People of the sun”, sung by Betty (real name: Elizabeth Hakobi Danielyan), who also did the lyrics and the music. She was helped by part of the team who wrote the armenian entry for ESC 2009 (Inga & Anush, “Jan jan”)Avet Barseghyan collaborated with the singer in the lyrics, while Mane Haycoban lended his composing skills to the song. A more extensive biography of the participant can be seen on this link:

Now to the opinion of the song: while the lyrics are essentially good, the best of the song is actually its music – so catchy, memorable and effectively radiant that you can even give it a whistle or two every day… and everywhere you go. The NF performance also got that same radiance and it could be a good bet for a good placing – will it actually translate well in Malta, though? Only time well tell…

Belarus will be the next one. So watch out for it pretty soon…

Thank you,
