Only one month is left until the Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2014 starts in Malta. Europe will see 16 countries participating in the Contest, all of which have selected their entrants – the majority of them girls. One of the lot is also the Belarusian delegate, Nadezhda Misyakova, who is actively preparing for her performance on Europe’s largest kids music festival stage.
Even with a tight schedule of rehearsals, Nadezhda is still managing to carry on her school duties and is preparing for exams. In addition, she is attending classes at her music school in Minsk, where she studies the piano. “Several times a week I have vocal and choreography lessons. Now, I also take part in various concerts. It helps to get used to the performance, to the image and the song,” Nadezhda said.
Nadezhda’s song Sokol will include a new dance choreography developed by Olga Sharova. The choreographer is particularly focused on creating a choreography in which Nadezhda and her backing dancers will look presentable and come across well on television. Besides, the song has been altered, where several new instruments have been introduced, giving it a more dynamic sound.
New costumes have been designed especially for the Song Contest. The designer has chosen to decorate the garments with bright elements. On top of it all, Nadezhda will be wearing a specially designed headgear, decorated with wooden beads and pheasant feathers.
Here is a reminder of what Nadezhda looked like on the Belarusian national final for the JESC 2014.
Will she be looking the same or something on the lines of Elitsa, the Bulgarian representative for Eurovision 2013 (Elitsa and Stoyan) is for us to be seen on the 15th of November.
