New to Junior Eurovision?
The Junior Eurovision Song Contest has been a family favourite since appearing on our screens in 2003; that year Croatia’s Dino Jelusić won the Contest in Copenhagen with his song Ti Si Moja Prva Ljubav (You Are My First Love).
A total of 40 different nations have participated over the years, with Georgia needing the largest trophy cabinet, having won on three occasions. Armenia, Belarus, Malta, Poland and Russia have notched up two victories each.
Joining the party in Yerevan are the 2023 Eurovision Song Contest hosts the United Kingdom; their first Junior participation since 2005 and the first time the BBC has taken part, as previous UK involvement was organised by ITV.
The 20th Junior Eurovision Song Contest will take place in the Karen Demirchyan Sports and Concerts Complex, in Yerevan, Armenia, on Sunday 11 December at 16:00 CET.
