It’s less than 90 days until the 2019 Junior Eurovision Song Contest. In this article, we’ll review everything we know so far and everything we expect to be revealed soon.
Who Is Participating?
Nineteen countries will participate in the 2019 Junior Eurovision Song Contest. These countries are:
- Republic of Ireland
- North Macedonia (Formally F.Y.R. Macedonia)
- The Netherlands
Sadly we won’t be seeing Israel or Azerbaijan at this year’s contest, but we will see Spain who has returned after 13 years of absence.
Where Will It Be Held?
The contest will take place in Gliwice-Silesia, a city in Poland, who won the contest last year with the song ‘Anyone I Want To Be’ performed by Roksana Węgiel. The show will be held in the Arena Gliwice, with an overall capacity of 17,000.
Who Will Host The Show?
Ida Nowakowska, Aleksander Sikora & Roksana Węgiel will host this year’s edition of the contest in Gliwice. You can read all about them here.
What Is This Year’s Slogan & Logo?
#ShareTheJoy is the official slogan of the 2019 Junior Eurovision Song Contest. The logo design features a blue and purple kite, designed by Konrad Smuga. The design was unveiled at a Press Conference at the 2019 Eurovision Song Contest, on the 13th of May.
Which Countries Have Already Confirmed Their Artist?
The following countries have confirmed the artist, song or both: Georgia, Kazakhstan, North Macedonia, Spain, Ukraine & Malta. You can meet the artists and their songs on our new ‘Meet The Artists’ site.
How Will The Show Work?
Although the exact information regarding this matter has been released, we expect that the show will run similarly to last year’s event, which featured a 50/50 vote of a national jury, which consisted of three music industry professionals and two children who reside in the participating country. The audience vote was conducted online, both before and during the show.
This year’s edition of the show will be the seventeenth edition. The show first began in 2003 and was hosted by Denmark.
