Last week, Rai announced that Chanel Dilecta will represent Italy at Junior Eurovision in Yerevan next month. Chanel was the 16th and final participating artist to be announced.
Chanel’s entry, titled “BLA BLA BLA”, was composed by Marco Iardella and was written by Carmine Spera, Fabrizio Palaferri, Angela Senatore. The song is about the importance of promises around world peace and climate change being kept, and is one of several Junior Eurovision entries to be themed around climate change.
Chanel has studied singing and ballet since the age of 4, along with the piano and modern dance. She is no stranger to international competitions, having participated in TMF (Tour Music Fest) 2021, the Italian Performer Cup (2021) and The Coach Contest. Besides music and performance, Chanel designs jewellery, reads, knits, and enjoys solving Rubik’s Cubes.
The 2022 Junior Eurovision Song Contest will be held on December 11th in the Karen Demirchyan Sports and Concert Complex in Yerevan, Armenia. This is the second time that Yerevan is hosting the contest, after previously having this honour in 2011. A total of 16 countries will ‘Spin The Magic’ later this year.
