As it was previously announced, today we got “BLA BLA BLA” with which Chanel Dilecta will be representing Italy at the up and coming edition of Junior Eurovision 2022.
Italy opts into a dance song
Last year, Italy has sent a rock sounding song to the contest. This year Chanel Dilecta brings us to the dance floor with “BLA BLA BLA”. The song gives off a vibe of the songs performed by La Rappresentante di Lista. Italy went for the junior sounding song and music video. Despite it being more of a dance song, Chanel performs a few high notest throughout the song.
