Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2019

This year’s Junior Eurovision Song Contest will be held in the Gliwice Arena, Poland, on the 24th November 2019. Excitingly, it marks the first time Poland will host a music-based Eurovision event! Last year, Roksana Węgiel brought Poland its first Eurovision-adjacent win with “Anyone I Want To Be”. Roksana has since been announced to be hosting the contest, along with Ida Nowakowska and Aleksander Sikora.

The following nineteen countries have confirmed their participation:

Georgia at the Junior Eurovision Song Contest

Georgia debuted at the Junior Eurovision Song Contest in 2007 which took place in Rotterdam, Netherlands. Their debut entry, “Odelia Ranuni” by Mariam Romelashvili finished in 4th, with 116 points. They have since competed every year and are arguably the most successful country in the contest. Georgia have won the contest three times (in 2008, 2011 and 2016). 

Following their most recent victory in 2016, they hosted the 2017 contest. This marked the first time a Eurovision-adjacent contest has been hosted on Georgian soil. Last year, they were represented by Tamar Edilashvili with “Your Voice”, finishing in 8th place. Will Georgi bring Georgia another top 10 JESC finish? We will find out on November 24th.

I started watching Eurovision ever since I moved to the UK in 2006, obsessed since 2012 and haven't looked back since.
