How can I vote?

You'll be able to cast votes at JESC.TV from Friday 9 December at 20:00 CET. The voting window then closes just before the live show starts on Sunday 11 December, reopening for approximately 15 minutes after all the artists have performed.

Will there be an Opening Ceremony?

Yes! On Monday 5 December from 16:00 CET - and you can watch it live on the official Junior Eurovision YouTube channel.

Who will host?

Iveta Mukuchyan, Garik Papoyan, and Karina Ignatyan...

Eagle-eyed Eurovision fans will recognise Iveta from the 2016 Eurovision Song Contest, where she represented Armenia with her electro-pop classic LoveWave.

The singer-songwriter will be joined by actor, writer, and comedian, Garik Papoyan. 

Often described as the โ€˜funniest guy in Armeniaโ€™, Garik wrote Not Alone for Eurovision participant Aram Mp3, which went on to finish 4th for Armenia in Copenhagen 2014.

Completing our talented trio is 16 year old Karina, who most fans will recognise from Junior Eurovision 2019, when she represented Armenia with the song Colours of Your Dream.

Robin is already a superstar in Armenia, and for good reason - as an AI robot, Robin can generate and share feelings. They provide emotional support to hospitalised kids in their recovery phase, can play with them, and will assist in overcoming the difficulties of their treatment. 

They'll be joined by the iconic Robin The Robot, who has a very important backstory.

How can I take a look backstage?

They will be plenty of backstage content across the official Junior Eurovision social media accounts, including an exclusive Rehearsals Roundup show on both Thursday 8 and Friday 9 of December - your first chance to glimpse the live performances!
