1. Greece – Alexandros & Kalli – Tore ine i sira mas
On 30th September, Greek television viewers selected Alexandros Choundas and Kalli Georgelli to represent the 2006 Eurovision Song Contest host country Greece at the Junior Eurovision Song Contest in Belgium. Alexandros (15) already won a Student Theatre Festival and came fourth in the Greek national Junior Eurovision Song Contest selection of 2004.
Kalli (13) also made her second appearance in the Greek national selection. Kalli performed at the opening ceremony of the 2004 Paralympics in Athens.

2. Denmark – Nicolai Kielstrup – Shake, shake, shake
The second young singer to perform on stage of the Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2005 is Nicolai Kielstrup, who won the Danish national final Junior Melodi Grand Prix. Nicolai, who is 13 years old, went to see the Danish national selection two years ago, because he knew one of the participants. He was fascinated by what he saw and, ever since then, it has been his aim to take part himself.
Nicolai will be accompanied by three dancers; Camilla Muxol Søberg (13), Mellanie Gandø (12) and Jytte Knap (14). The kids know eachother from a school for talented young singers, dancers and actors. After they graduated, they decided to form the dance group Dream Dance.
3. Croatia – Lorena Jelusic – Rock baby
4. Romania – Alina Eremia – Ţurai!
