Nicolas Alves will represent Portugal at the Junior Eurovision Song Contest in Yerevan, Armenia this December.

Nicolas was picked having impressed the judges and viewers of the Portuguese version of The Voice Kids, where he placed second. 

The winner of the show, Maria, would be too old to compete at the Junior Contest later this year, and so the honour of representing Portugal was passed to Nicolas. 

Notably, Nicolas performed a version The Four Season’s Beggin’ - a song recently popularised by Eurovision winners Måneskin.

Nicolas lives with his family in Torres Vedras, a town near Lisbon. His parents are from Brazil but Nicolas was born in England, where he lived until the age of 10. 

He has a cat called Ben and a dog named Rocky, and in his free time Nicolas likes to play guitar with his brothers. 

Last year, Portugal was represented by Simão Oliveira with the song O Rapaz, finishing 11th overall.
