Nell is a fairy and lives in the fairy forest. A singing competition will be held soon and everyone is very excited. The winner will receive a beautiful teardrop pearl necklace. Everyone is busy practicing, composing songs or preparing autographs, and nobody has time for Nell. As she sits around by herself, she starts thinking that maybe she could participate as well – and she won’t be dissuaded by the frogs, who would like to get rid of the new competition. Before her performance, Nell is nervous, but everything goes smoothly. However, the best performance is presented by her friend Suri who sings a song she has written herself. It’s so beautiful that everyone wants to sing along at the end, and a great choir rings out. The jury decides that they all have won singing Suri’s song – and everyone receives a pearl from the teardrop necklace.
