The Dutch selection process explained

When it comes to Junior Eurovision, The Netherlands does not mess around. Every year, a selected list of performers go to the Junior Songfestival Academy where they showcase their talent. Then, some of the performers are selected and will go through to the finals. The performers are divided into groups, and songs are written specifically for them. In the final, the singers will perform their songs, and the winner will be the Dutch representative at Junior Eurovision Song Contest.

The Netherlands have competed in every edition of JESC since the contest’s inception in 2003. In 2009, Ralf Mackenbach won the contest with the song “Click Clack”, securing the first, and so far only, Dutch victory.

In 2022, the Dutch representative was Luna with the song “La Fiesta.” Luna finished in 7th place. You can watch her performance here:
