On 26th November, the third edition of the Junior Eurovision Song Contest takes place in Hasselt, Belgium. Day by day, esctoday.com will present you the 16 participants, two per day. Today: Kids4Rock from Latvia and Lindsay, representing host country Belgium!

11. Latvia – Kids4Rock – Es esmu maza, jauka meitene
This year, Latvia will be represented at the Junior Eurovision Song Contest by Kids4Rock. The group consists of singer Monta Belinska, Daniels Groza, Edijs Belinskis and Zane O�iņa. On 26th November, the Latvian four will sing the song Es esmu maza, jauka meitene on stage of the Ethias Arena in Hasselt. The leading member of Kids4Rock is the 12 year-old Daniels, who will play the drums in Hasselt, but also likes playing the guitar, the bass guitar, the piano, the accordion, the mouth-organ and the violin. In the 11 year-old Monta Belinska, Daniels found the perfect singer for his band. Monta's passion is poetry and thus she wrote the lyrics of the song. 13 year-old Edijs Belinskis (guitar) and 11 year-old Zane O�iņa (bass guitar) complete Kids4Rock.

12. Belgium – Lindsay – Mes rêves
Lindsay is 11 years old and lives in the Flemish village of Wezembeek-Oppem, near Brussels. Lindsay is dreaming of being a star and that's what she is singing about in her song for Hasselt: Mes rêves. During the Belgian national final, Lindsay convinced the four professional judges, including Mélanie Cohl who represented Belgium at the Eurovision Song Contest in 1998 and Viktor Lazlo who hosted the contest in 1987. In the semifinal as well as in the final, Lindsay received the maximum score from all the juries. At Saturday's Junior Eurovision Song Contest, Lindsay will be accompanied by six dancers and without a doubt supported by the many Belgians in the audience in the Ethias Arena of Hasselt. Earlier today, she had her first rehearsal. To avoid too many stress, she didn't give the maximum. Wise decision!
