Life after JESC - Betty!

Posted

“I really just want to say thank you very much to everyone involved in the Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2014.  It really does feel like a family and one that I’m really happy to be a member of.  I loved meeting all of the other contestants and miss them all so much: I hope that we can all get together again someday.”

As for a favourite JESC song?  “That is an impossible question.  I was friends with everybody and therefore loved all of their songs.  They were all different and showed different talents and personalities.”

On her return home, Betty and her enthusiastic team of back-up dancers were greeted by a crowd of friends, family and fans. “It was wonderful to see them all and to know that they had watched the event on TV and were there to support us.”

Once she showed everyone the trophy she won for coming third in the contest, education took top priority.  “I had a holiday to Dubai with my family which was great fun, but school and lessons started again and I realise that my education must come first.”

Despite this worthy aim, Betty was also given more songs to think about singing and recording and has several television projects on the go.  “I still host a TV program in Armenia that features special guests, musical performances and a lot of laughs. It’s something that I really enjoy and hope to continue doing for a long time.”

Betty’s advice for anyone out there who’d like to participate in the Junior Eurovision Song Contest is simple.  “Just enjoy your time. You’ll make so many friends and the experience is there for you to enjoy.”
