Amsterdam will be the beating heart of the international final of the Junior Eurovision Song Contest The Netherlands, famous for its boats, canals, and the sea. In the winter, when the temperature drops, the water turns to ice. This is why this year's theme is Break The Ice :)
Amsterdam 2012: Break The Ice!
In December, the international music stars of the future will not only come together to celebrate their love of music, they will also be part of the 10th anniversary of the Junior Eurovision Song Contest.
"So here is our message to all children, their families, fans and the audience: let's break the ice in Amsterdam!" the organisers from the Host Broadcaster AVRO say. "With a little help from Mother Nature, Amsterdam will be one big "Winter Wonderland" in December, so we really couldn't resist this theme."
"It's fresh, bold and reflects the motto Break The Ice. This logo is a promise of what might just become the coolest Junior Eurovision Song Contest to date!" says Sietse Bakker, the Supervisor of the contest on behalf of the EBU.
So get out of your comfort zone, break the barriers, be yourself and share your love of music. Make new friends from all over Europe in Amsterdam!
