Fact square EBU

What are the favourite lyrics of your song?
My favourite part in my song is "So it’s true, it’s not always joyful, in our hearts it’s a bit like a fight, and you, tomorrow, what do you do? Imagine with me." Because it reflects reality – life is not always easy and fun – but yet has a strong hopeful message at the end: imagining together a brighter future!

And I also love singing it because it’s a mellow moment of the song that contrasts with the rest of the track, and it finishes with a high note that I really like to reach!

How and when did you start with music?
I started singing when I was very young as my mother used to play all these CDs in Italian so I could fall asleep.

Who are your idols?
My idol is Ariana Grande but I also like other music and rap.

How would you celebrate a Junior Eurovision victory?
I would love to celebrate Junior Eurovision victory with all my family and my friends but above all, I would like to dedicate a victory to my late grandfather.

How do you 'Move The World'?
I try to move the world by doing good deeds with UNICEF and the GOOD PLANET foundation. I think any of us can do this by doing little things.

Lyrics of J'imagine

Oups, y’a plus de fleurs au balcon
Flûte, elles ont fané sous mes doigts
Oups, c’était pas la bonne saison
Mais le printemps reviendra
Oups, j’ai rêvé qu’on était plein
À repeindre les murs de nos villes
Et laisser l’empreinte de nos mains
Pas que sur nos écrans tactiles

J’y peux rien je suis comme ça
C’est plus fort que moi j’y crois
Les n’y crois plus, les n’y crois pas
C’est pas pour moi

Tout commence par un « J’imagine »
Dans un coin de la tête
Un rêve qui soudain se dessine
Que plus rien n’arrête
Dis-moi toi ce que t’imagines
Chante-le à tue-tête
Passe le message à ta voisine
Hey
Moi je suis prête

Lalalalalalalalala
J’imagine
Lalalalalalalalalala
J’imagine
Lalalalalalalalalala
J’imagine, J’imagine
Lalalalalalalalalala
Moi demain j’imagine

Oups, j’ai imaginé un monde
Où on se serrait dans les bras
Pour faire la plus belle des rondes
Une danse entre vous et moi
Go y’a toujours quelque chose à faire
Même en plein milieu du salon
Sur nos écrans les mains en l’air
Pour faire la révolution

J’y peux rien je suis comme ça
C’est plus fort que moi j’y crois
Les n’y crois plus, les n’y crois pas
C’est pas pour moi

Tout commence par un « J’imagine »
Dans un coin de la tête
Un rêve qui soudain se dessine
Que plus rien n’arrête
Dis-moi toi ce que t’imagines
Chante-le à tue-tête
Passe le message à ta voisine
Hey
Moi je suis prête

Lalalalalalalalala
J’imagine
Lalalalalalalalalala
J’imagine
Lalalalalalalalalala
J’imagine, J’imagine
Lalalalalalalalalala
Moi demain j’imagine

Alors, c’est vrai
C’est pas toujours la joie
Dans nos cœurs c’est
Un peu comme un combat
Et toi demain
Toi tu fais quoi
Imagine avec moi

Lalalalalalalalala
J’imagine
Lalalalalalalalalala
J’imagine
J’imagine
Lalalalalalalalalala
J’imagine
Lalalalalalalalalala
J’imagine
Oh, moi demain j’imagine
Oh, moi demain j’imagine
Oh, moi demain j’imagine
Oh, moi demain j’imagine

Oops, there is no more flowers on the balcony
Drat! They wilted in my fingers
Oops, it was not the good season
But spring will come back
Oops, I dreamt we were a lot
To repaint the walls of our cities
And leave our hands’ marks
Not just on our touch screens

I can’t help it that’s who I am
I can’t help it I believe
The “believe no more” the “don’t believe”
It’s not for me

Everything starts with a “I imagine”
At the back of your mind
A dream that takes shape
That nothing can stop
Tell me what you imagine
Sing it at the top of you voice
Pass on the message to your neighbor
Hey
I’m ready

Lalalalalalalalala
I imagine
Lalalalalalalalalala
I imagine
Lalalalalalalalalala
I imagine, I imagine
Lalalalalalalalalala
Tomorrow I imagine


Oops, I’ve imagined a world
Where people hold each other in their arms
To do the nicest round dance
A dance between you and me
Go! There is always something to do
Even in the middle of the living room
On our screens, hands in the air
To undergo a revolution

I can’t help it that’s who I am
I can’t help it I believe
The “don’t believe anymore” the “don’t believe”
It’s not for me

Everything starts with a “I imagine”
At the back of your mind
A dream that takes shape
That nothing can stop
Tell me what you imagine
Sing it at the top of you voice
Pass on the message to your neighbor
Hey
I’m ready

Lalalalalalalalala
I imagine
Lalalalalalalalalala
I imagine
Lalalalalalalalalala
I imagine, I imagine
Lalalalalalalalalala
Tomorrow I imagine

So, it’s true
It’s not always joyful
In our hearts it’s
A bit like a fight
And you, tomorrow
What do you do
Imagine with me

Lalalalalalalalala
I imagine
Lalalalalalalalalala
I imagine
I imagine
Lalalalalalalalalala
I imagine
Lalalalalalalalalala
I imagine
Oh tomorrow, I imagine
Oh tomorrow, I imagine
Oh tomorrow, I imagine
Oh tomorrow, I imagine
