Now let's hope there will be no more problem with the azeri neighbour, or the contest could wait one year or change of location....
... Do you think there is a chance to see azerbaidjan participate to a junior eurovision in armenia ?
So a lot of rumours about countries returning/debuting. Iceland, Norway, Sweden, Estonia, UK, etc.
If no one (besides Azerbaijan) withdraws we could potentially see JESC reaching the 25 country mark, who would have thought that was ever gonna be possible just a few 6/7 years ago when the contest was scraping by to get more than 10 participants each year.
Speaking of the UK at JESC, from what I have read there are plans to return to the contest, however it won't be until 2023 and will end up pushing Wales out of the contest if this article is to be believed. It'd be a shame if Wales get blocked from entering due to the UK coming back, Wales has tried for years to get into JESC let alone the adult contest and to get the boot so early into their journey feels unfair to me.
Wales is set to be blocked from entering the Junior Eurovision by the UK’s planned return to the competition, it has been reported. According to Eurovision IN the BBC plans to return to Junior Eurovision in 2023, 20 years after the first competition was held, when the UK did take part. The UK...

Ratings wise, I am not sure how much longer Italy and Germany will stick with JESC, Italy only got 15k, Germany got 230k, but they pulled out of the second Eurovision Dance Contest due to low ratings when it got 3.1 million in Germany for the first contest, they may have lower expectations for JESC on children's channel KIKA on Sunday afternoon though. Great ratings for France and Poland though, the two most recent hosts!
Junior Eurovision 2021 got its winner last afternoon during the grand final. At the end of the show, Malena came into the festival history being the winner of the 19th edition after winning the televote with 224 points. The show started at 16:00 CET within two hours and 40 minutes of music and mo
Just a few minutes ago, Irish Gaelic-language public broadcaster TG4 confirmed on its website that the country will take part in the next edition of Junior Eurovision, which will be held in Armenia next winter. All interested children, aged between 9 and 14 on the day of the festival next autumn...
