Gliwice-Silesia 2019

Yerzhan Maksim releases his entry ‘Armanyńnan Qalma’

It is Kazakhstan's second entry to the Junior Eurovision Song Contest

Earlier this summer, Kazakhstan announced that Yerzhan Maksim will be representing them in Gliwice-Silesia. As we are getting closer to the contest, Yerzhan has now released his entry ‘Armanyńnan Qalma’.

Yerzhan is able to give us a fairytale vibe in his music video, with viewers even commenting that his entry is something that could be featured on the Disney Channel. In addition to that, he is known for belting out high notes during his stint on The Voice Kids Russia, so it’s no surprise that he has added this to his entry.

You can listen to ‘Armanyńnan Qalma’ below:

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:

Kazakhstan at the Junior Eurovision Song Contest

Kazakhstan debuted at the Junior Eurovision Song Contest in 2018 after their broadcaster Khabar Agency were invited by the EBU to participate at the contest.

Their only entry so far was Daneliya Tuleshova’s “Ózińe sen” which finished in 6th place with 171 points at the contest held in Minsk. Despite expectations being higher for the song, Kazakhstan will still return for the 2019 contest! You can remind yourself of Daneliya’s performance below:

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