FYR Macedonia , Sweden and Greece have finished their first rehearsals in Bucharest at the 2006 Junior Eurovision Song Contest. You can see how their performers fared, and get to know them better in the exclusive report below.

FYR Macedonia

Zana performed her ethnic song with a typical Macedonian choregraphy. Her voice sounded very good and the dancers enjoyed dancing.

About Zana Aliu :

Zana Aliu is 13 years old and started singing at the age of 6. She is a member of the school choir, which has won several awards in various competitions throughout the country.

The TYR Macedonian representative at this year’s Junior Eurovision Song Contest is a very good student. Her favorite subject is mathematics, and her least favorites are chemistry and history. She speaks English quite fluentlyas well asa bit of Italian and Spanish.

For the Junior Eurovision Song Contest national selection, Zana wrote two songs, but she decided to choose Vljubena (In Love) because of its fast rhythm, catchy melody and the energetic sound.

Sweden

One of the favourites, Molly, took to the stage whcih was coloured ingrey/blue, dark pink and blue. Her voice is great but the song may perhaps betoo mature for this competition and better for the Eurovision Song Contest proper.

About Molly :

Molly is 14 years old and comes from Huddinge, a suburb situated ten minutes from Sweden’s capital, Stockholm. Molly attends the world-renowned swedish music school Adolf Fredriks Music Classes, where she is both first and second soprano.

When she isn’t busy singing or dancing she enjoys tackling the slopes on a pair of skis or her snowboard, or playing at her local golf course.

Molly and her two younger sisters as back-up vocals won the hearts and votes of both audience and viewers in Sweden. Her song is about friendship, about standing up for who you are and believing in yourself. Molly hopes it will inspire people who feel like they don’t fit in, who feel rejected in some way.

Greece

The stage lights are pink and yellow. Chloe is wearing a red t-shirt and her voice is in great form.
