Last week the final of the 15th edition of the Junior Eurovision Song Contest took place. In the first part of a new series we look back at the experiences of each participant from the Junior Eurovision Event Week. Today it's all about Ana Kodra from Albania!

Ana Kodra represented Albania in the 2017 Junior Eurovision Song Contest with the song Don't Touch My Tree. Even though Ana is just 10 years old she has been studying the piano for the last six years and won several competitions. Read more about her here. The singer was the first performer to take to the stage in Tbilisi to begin rehearsals, you can watch the exclusive video below:

Ana was happy with how the first rehearsals went. We met the singer afterwards where she spoke of the many friends she had made through the contest and mentioned that Misha from Armenia was her closest friend. You can see photos from Ana's second rehearsal here

Ana gave a powerful rendition of her Junior Eurovision entry, Don't Touch My Tree. You can watch the live performance below.

Ana visited our studio in Tbilisi where she participated in our fun quiz, the Junior Eurovision Challenge Wheel. Check out the video below!

Ana finished 13th in Junior Eurovision 2017. Before the contest she said that she would rather meet her idol, Christina Aguilera, than win the contest, who knows, maybe one day her dream will come true?
