Striking a chord: Corey Spedding has qualified for Junior Eurovision…News & Star
He said: “She is over the moon. It’s what she has been talking about for the last eight months. It’s her dream to get into the Eurovision. We are so happy she has got this far. Anything else is a bonus. ”

Although Corey only started singing last year – her grandfather, entertainer Don Spedding entered her into Reach for the Stars without telling her – and hasn’t had any formal piano training, competition bosses were impressed with her entry, The Best Is Yet To Come. It’s a song about world peace and hope which she initially recorded at Tom Tyson’s Music Farm at Egremont.

Junior Eurovision 2004 will now be held in Lillehammer in Norway on November 20 and will be produced by broadcaster NRK. Granada controller of entertainment Mark Wells said: “We had an amicable discussion with the EBU, saying ‘we are struggling to make this show with the funds allocated and would you explore finding a new host broadcaster’. ” Junior Eurovision was held for the first time last year. Denmark hosted the competition, which was broadcast on ITV1 but proved less popular than the adult version of the competition – attracting just five million viewers in its 7pm slot. However, ten-year-old UK entrant Tom Morley fared better than his adult counterparts in the 2003 competition, scoring third place with Song for the World.

The judges sentence the Olympics to lunacyTelegraph.co.uk
So, are miners competing for how much tonnage of coal they can shift in five minutes? Or is theirs an event judged on artistic merit, as colliers in helmets and hobnail-boots lumber around an underground coal-rink? Arthurrr Scargeeel, nul points. This is, of course, hypothesis. What is not is that the Games are now full of largely judgemental sports, Zeus meets the Eurovision song contest, in which there is no way in which judgements can be transparently honest. Deals and prejudices are always possible, if not actually implicit, in such a system. Why, in Athens, the crowd’s boos even caused the judges’ score for a Russian gymnast to be increased, and the American gymnast Paul Hamm was given a gold because the judges miscalculated their scores and gave him higher marks than the true winner, Yang Tae-yung of Korea. Even the existence of a maximum score, which is occasionally given in gymnastics, suggests that final perfection has been achieved. This is the equivalent to giving a runner in the 1952 Olympics who ran the mile in 4.
