Serbian broadcaster RTS has confirmed that they will be participating in the Junior Eurovision Song Contest in 2021. This news follows a string of countries confirming they will not be taking part in the contest this December.
Serbia become the 12th participating country
RTS has confirmed that they will be participating in the Junior Eurovision Song Contest this year, due to be held in Paris, France. The confirmation came in the form of the opening of the submissions window for their internal selection. Submissions close on September 20, and the entry will be selected by a panel of experts.
However, in the event that no submitted songs meet the quality required, the broadcast reserves the right to choose the composition and performer outside of the submissions.
Serbia have participated in every edition of Junior Eurovision between 2006-2010 and since 2014, their best results came in both 2007 and 2010, when they placed third.
