Preparations for Junior Eurovision have been happening for weeks now, and as of today all of the delegations have touched down in Yerevan for rehearsals and the opening ceremony. Just before hitting the red carpet we had an opportunity to talk with Katarina Savić from Serbia and learn more about her as an artist.

Greetings Katarina! How are you doing today amidst all the Junior Eurovision preparations?

Hi! I am very busy these days. We are preparing my JESC performance through singing and ballet classes, TV and Social media appearances. But regardless of the hard work I like the whole process and I can’t wait to get to Yerevan.

Let’s help our readers get to know you a bit better. What is one thing that people would be surprised to learn about you?

Music is my space of freedom because there are no borders in music. I know how to sing in many languages, and that is one of my talents. Also I like animals. I have one frog, En. I love her so much. Horror films are my favorites and K-pop is a culture that I like to know better.

You were selected by the Serbian broadcaster after they held an open song submission for JESC. What made you decide to submit an entry this year?

The composer of the song “Svet Bez Granica” thought that my voice would be the best choice for music and lyrics. She was right. I tried to sing that song and that was love at first. We applied for selection and I won.

As we can see in your entry “Svet Bez Granica” you are a very talented trombone player. Are there any other instruments that you also play or want to learn to play one day?

I know how to play a piano as well but the sound of the trombone is my sound. I prefer singing.

I completely understand that. Speaking of your JESC song, what message do you hope it conveys to the general audience?

I hope that the song will inspire the audience to turn to the beauty of music and the emotions of first teenage love.

In thinking about your time at the contest and in Armenia, what are you most looking forward to doing or experiencing? 

I am looking forward to meeting all the contestants. We are already connected through Social Media but socializing in person is more fun. I want to know more about the life and culture of Armenia and to learn more songs in Armenian. 

Performing at Junior Eurovision is a big life accomplishment, what do you hope to accomplish next once the contest is over?

This experience will help me a lot because the Eurovision stage gives a very unique stage experience for performers. It is an honor to perform at such an important music competition. Also I hope to achieve cooperation with other contestants in the future. 

In closing, do you have a final message you’d like to share with the ESCUnited readers?

 Enjoy the music at Junior Eurovision and spin the magic in Your everyday life!

Katarina will compete alongside 15 other countries on December 11th with her song “Svet Bez Granica”. Remember that you can support her in the online televote starting on December 9th at 20:00 PM CET!
