Russia has one of the most competitive national finals, with over 500 song submissions. Talking to Junioreurovision.tv she said the following after her win at the national selection:
‘This year I decided to try my hand at a solo song and I did it! I am very glad that I will represent Russia at the competition in Paris. I want to note that I had strong opponents. All the participants had good songs and beautiful numbers. I wanted to thank everyone who voted for me and my song ‘Mon Ami’ in the finale! And also my family, which always supports me”’- Tanya Mezhentseva
Since 2005, Russia participated in the Junior Eurovision Song Contest every year and even won twice! Their first win was in 2006 with the Tolmachevy Twins. Later in 2017 Polina Bogusevich won the contest for Russia with her song ”Wings”.
