That was the Junior Eurovision Song Contest that was. Russia’s Polina Bogusevich is the first winner of the brand new JESC Trophy. ‘Wings’ scored 188 points, narrowly beating the entry from our Geogian hosts.

Jut before boarding their flights home, Ewan and Lisa-Jayne look back at the Grand Final and the performances, discuss the issues surrounding the online vote, and wonder if they will ever be allowed to attend another Festivali i Kenges.

    Thank you, Ewan and Lisa-Jayne for your sterling efforts in both podcasting and broadcasting. I was a bit alarmed to learn you were leaning out the commentary box window. If you had done that at the wrong point in the show you risked decapitation from a passing boomerang.

    From the relative safety of my UK based computer keyboard, I fully echo your comments about this year’s JESC. The staging and the LED effects were a notch up from last year and the contest had a worthy winner.

    However, the online voting was a shambles. In a contest where the online vote is supposed to be instrumental in deciding the winner, it simply has to work. I too got the white screen, meaning that this middle-aged fanboy’s increasingly desperate attempts to give a helping hand to a formulaic slice of Dutch kiddie-pop ended in failure. On reflection maybe no bad thing.
