Isabella Clarke represented Australia in the 2017 Junior Eurovision Song Contest with the song 'Speak Up'. Australia's third Junior Eurovision representative scored the best ever placing for the country, third. Today we look back at Isabella's week in Tbilisi.

Isabella’s first four years as a vocalist have been enormous, exploding onto the scene and accomplishing some incredible achievements including a principal vocalist role for The Victorian State Schools Spectacular and numerous singing competition accolades.

"Georgia is such a nice country, people are so wonderful. Everyone has been so friendly and nice," said Isabella prior to her second rehearsal. Isabella got to know her fellow contestants during the week. "The highlight for me so far has been meeting all the other contestants. The rehearsals have also gone really well, everything is coming together," she said. What advice did she receive prior to going to Tbilisi? "The advice I've been given is just to have fun," she added.

Isabella knows how to laugh at herself and values staying humble and grounded. Her family means the world to her and she is proud to be a loyal and supportive friend amongst other like-minded singers and school colleagues. Watch her live performance below!

We caught up with Isabella after the votes came in and she found out that she had scored Australia's best ever placing in Junior Eurovision:

Isabella is focused and determined and a fierce defender of what’s right and wrong. It looks like Junior Eurovision is only the beginning for the young star!
