Hosts for Junior 2009 chosen!22 October 2009 at 20:17 CEST
The organising broadcaster of this year's Junior Eurovision Song Contest, NTU, began their search for the hosts for the show in August. In the end they had 74 candidates to choose from!
The lucky ones chosen are Ani Lorak (who also took part in the Eurovision Song Contest in 2008 with her song Shady Lady and achieved the second place) and Timur Miroshnichenko. Dmytro Borodin was chosen to be the Green Room reporter. You can read about Ani Lorak in her blog post, about Timur in his post and Dmytro in his post.
Timur has been the Ukrainian commentator for all the Eurovision Family of Events - the Junior Eurovision Song Contest, the Eurovision Song Contest and the Eurovision Dance Contest.
Dmytro is definitely the youngest host this year, having taken part in the Ukrainian national selection for the Junior Eurovision Song Contest the last three years!
Two more hosts were selected for the exclusive backstage coverage which you can follow on JuniorEurovision.tv. The chosen ones were Artem Nikiforov and Kateryna Tymoshenko.
It'll be up to them to bring you the excitement of the backstage and see for yourself how does it feel to be there! Stay tuned for that at JuniorEurovision.tv!
The 2009 Junior Eurovision Song Contest will take place on the 21st of November in Kyiv, Ukraine. It'll be the seventh time the world's biggest kids' song contest will be held.
