It's hard to know what it was - the best song, the best performance or all of it together - but it was Ivan Ivanov who took home he trophy. Congratulations!

Who is he?

"Little Jon Bon Jovi" as friends call Ivan, is the author of the music, the lyrics and the arrangement of the rock piece Superhero.

Ivan was born in the city of Gorna Oryahovitsa in central Bulgaria. At the age of six, he joined the local children choir. A year later he became solo singer and until now is member of the vocal group New Music. 

He also has won many national and international awards at different music contests and festivals. Will he also collect the trophy of the Junior Eurovision Song Contest?  Check out his song below!

He will now go on to participate in the 2011 Junior Eurovision Song Contest in Yerevan, Armenia with his entry Супергерой or Superhero in English.
