Wales debuts at the first rehearsals with Manw's 'Perta'

For the first time in Junior Eurovision history, Wales is taking part in the competition. With her song 'Perta', Manw shined on stage at the Minsk Arena in Belarus.

The 14-year-old Manw is the first participant from Wales in the Junior Eurovision Song Contest. She started singing at home when she was only two years old and performed in public at Urdd Eisteddfod (the annual Welsh language youth festival of literature, music and performing arts) for the first time at the age of 4. Manw's life-long dream is to perform on the big stage, she loves to sing and dance and her favourite film is The Greatest Showman, for obvious reasons.

For her first rehearsal of Perta, Manw is joined on stage by four dancers. They are all dressed in black tops with glitter pants. Manw herself is dressed in a red outfit with a black longsleeve and black shoes.

During the entire performance, the LED screens behind Manw and her crew show colourful images of nature. This matches the scenery of her official music video, which you can watch HERE.

Manw will be the first to perform in the live show on the 25th of November.
