Wales in the Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2018

Wales made their debut in the Junior Eurovision Song Contest last year in Minsk. They were one of two debuting nations, the other being Kazakhstan. Both countries are returning for the 2019 contest in Gliwice-Silesia.

Manw represented Wales in 2018, with the song “Perta”, finishing in last place with 29 points, one point behind Serbia in 19th place. Wales scored no points from the jury voting, gaining all their points in the online voting.
