German children’s broadcaster KiKA today revealed the five contestants vying for Germany’s debut tilt at Junior Eurovision, as well as two songs composed by Levent Geiger.
KiKA posted profiles of each contestant, as well as videos of the five Junior Eurovision 2020 hopefuls performing “See You Later” and “Stronger With You.”
Profiles of the contestants and their audition performances can be found here on KiKA’s website.
The five hopefuls are Susan Oseloff, a 13-year-old from Berlin who recently competed on The Voice Kids, 13-year-old Leroy from Neuruppin, 12-year-old Davit Nikalayan (a finalist on The Voice Kids) from Neustadt an der Weinstrasse, 13-year-old Linnea May from Hesse, and 14-year-old Malaika from Herrsching am Ammersee.
“See You Later” and “Stronger with You” are both written by Levent Geiger, a 17-year-old music prodigy who plays multiple instruments and already has racked up many years experience both in front of and behind the scenes in the German music industry. Geiger was also a finalist in the 2015 and 2019 KiKA competition Dein Song, and KiKA tasked him to write both a ballad and an up tempo dance song.
One of these songs and one of the five contestants will be selected by a jury consisting of Geiger, Max Mutzke, Martin Haas, and Michele Huesmann.
KiKA will show the process of casting Germany’s debut entrant for Junior Eurovision on September 1, 2020 and September 2, 2020 at 20:00 EST.
