“I wish I could stay here forever” – Ireland’s Sophie Lennon on Junior Eurovision in Armenia

YEREVAN, DECEMBER 9, ARMENPRESS. 13-year-old Sophie Lennon is representing Ireland at Junior Eurovision 2022 Song Contest in Yerevan, Armenia with her song Solas.

"No matter how dark or sad times get, you'll always be able to find light inside of you." That is the message behind 13-year-old song, which she will be singing on Sunday at the Junior Eurovision 2022 singing contest.

Speaking to BBC's Good Morning Ulster programme from Armenia, Sophie said she was extremely excited to be taking part.

"I've been looking forward to it for the longest time," BBC quoted Sophie Lennon as saying. "It's just a dream come true. It's a massive deal."

Her song Solas is sung in the Irish language. "It means light and it's all about mental health," she said.

"Everybody has a light inside of them, it's like finding the light at the end of the tunnel.

"It's always there, but it's just hard to find sometimes."

When asked how she was finding Armenia and the run-up to Sunday, Sophie told the BBC she loved it.

"You'd think it was competitive but we're all just one big family over here," she said.

"I am best friends with Nare from Armenia, we're just with each other the whole day.

"I think that's what makes the Junior Eurovision much more magical because it's for kids. The adult one is much more competitive in a way.

"The junior one is like a fantasy, it's so much fun and I wish I could stay here forever."

Sophie said she has received immense support from her family and friends back in Mayobridge.

"My whole family cant wait to get over. They're bringing people too," she said.

"I hope I win but it's amazing even to get this far."

Armenia will be represented at the Junior Eurovision 2022 by Nare with her song DANCE!
