Mimmi Sandén was selected by the Swedish broadcaster TV4 to represent the Scandinavian country in Kyiv. She'll perform Du together with Ali Payami and Alexander Kronlund. The latter also wrote the songs Lucky and If U Seek Amy for Britney Spears.

She's well known in Sweden, having taken part in Talang 2007, a talent show on TV4 and finishing second in the contest. She's the sister of Molly Jenson, who represented Sweden at the Junior Eurovision Song Contest in 2006 and the sister of Frida Sandén, who took the same job in 2007. 

FYR Macedonia goes with Sara

This weekend Sara competed with four other kids for the right to take the stage for FYR Macedonia in Kyiv. The finalists were selected from twelve songs. 

In the end she was the one collecting the most points and thus won the contest with her Za Ljubovta.

Last year's winner chooses Princesses

Princesses took the victory in Georgia, the country who won the Junior Eurovision Song Contest last year with Bzikebi's Bzz.. Their winning song is Lurji Prinveli. Now you wonder who "hide" behind this name? Well, it's Elene Makashvili, Mariam Gurgenidze, Liza Kenia, Mari Bokeria, Ana Tkeshelashvili and Liza Ramishvili. Can they repeat the success of Georgia also this year? We'll know in November!

All of those young stars will perform in Kyiv on the 21st of November at the seventh edition of the Junior Eurovision Song Contest.
