Another year, another Junior Eurovision top 10! The team here at ESCXTRA have scored all 16 of the Junior Eurovision 2022 entries and we’ll be counting down our top 10 along with a selection of reviews. Has your favourite made the top spot? Let’s find out!
Last year we revealed our top 10 of all the 19 entries at the 2021 Junior Eurovision Song Contest. Previous winners of our votes have included:
Today we reveal our numbers 6 to 3!
06 – 🇬🇪 Georgia: Mariam Bigvava – “I Believe”
For me, this was the most immediately impactful song this year. It has that Georgian flair that is present in all of their Junior Eurovision entries (and absent from all of their adult Eurovision entries). Everything from the production to the styling to the vocals is superb. The only thing keeping this from being higher for me is the English chorus. It’s completely unnecessary and detracts from the total product. But still amazing nonetheless.
05 – 🇪🇸 Spain: Carlos Higes – “Señorita”
Baby Miki Núñez is very young to be thinking about dancing with señorita’s at the school disco. That aside, the production gets you instantly into the rhythm of the song and makes this another quality entry for Spain since their comeback. I enjoy Latin pop, so this is easily one of my favourites.
This song hooked me from day one.I can see children across Europe loving this. I just know the stage show will be so fun with all the dancing we will see. Good luck to Carlos!
04 – 🇳🇱 Netherlands Luna – “La Festa”
Never in a million years would I expect The Netherlands to send a fun party anthem like this! The Dutch language can be very clunky, but Luna blends it well, amongst the hints of Latin beats fused with traditional Dutch trumpets. Both kids and adults will want to get up and dance along to this.
Tom O 🇬🇧
The clear fun playful party song for this contest! Full of fun and personality. Every Junior Eurovision needs this, it’s a children’s contest after all. To me this enters a similar space like France did in 2020 with J’Imagine. The Netherlands have a good record at JESC, so I’m expecting a high place for this one.
03 – 🇦🇲 Armenia: Nare – “DANCE!”
Quite possibly the strongest home nation entry in JESC history? For me it is! I would not be mad if Armenia earned back to back wins with this. The world needs to be dancing right now and this pop bop lifts the mood perfectly with its fusion of East and West music influences in the production.
