Meet our stars: Lerika from Russia
It's less than ten days for our favourite date in the calendar: Junior Eurovision Day! This year's Song Contest takes place the 1st of December so we've decided to introduce our stars for you to get to know them better. Meet our star from Russia, Lerika.
Russia joined the Junior Eurovision Song Contest family in 2005 and hasn't missed a contest since. This year they present their 8th entry. Russia won this competition in 2006 with The Tolmachevy Twins and their Spring Jazz. Last year in Yerevan Katya Ryabova took Romeo And Juliet to a fourth place.
This year Russia has a song called Sensatsiya (Sensation) sang by Lerika (13) from Olomouc, in the East of the Czech Republic. She participated in last year's Junior Eurovision, though representing Moldova, and finished sixth with her song No No. You can check her biography, pictures and video on her participant profile.
Remember that the 2012 Junior Eurovision Song Contest will be held in Amsterdam on Saturday the 1st of December at 20:15 CET and you can watch it live right here on Eurovision.tv!
