🇵🇱 Viki Gabor: ‘I would love to host Junior Eurovision’.

🇵🇱 Viki Gabor: ‘I would love to host Junior Eurovision’.

After storming to victory on home ground last November, Viki Gabor has been very busy. With her debut album set to be released in September, she now has her eyes set once more on the Junior Eurovision stage! Continuing the tradition The first Polish winner of the Junior Eurovision Song Contest, Roksana Węgiel, went on to host the 2019 edition in Gliwice, Poland. It seems this may have inspired Viki Gabor, the latest winner, to follow suit. In an interview with the website Pomponik.pl, Viki said that while she would “love to host the competition“, she also “doesn’t know what it will look like“. Us fans can certainly relate, especially after the adult edition was cancelled due to the current pandemic. Not all singing and dancing! Viki also stated that she would already “have a lot of responsibilities, when I sing and all these rehearsals“. Not an easy task, but I have the feeling that Viki could be a ‘superhero’ and rise to the occasion! While it was announced that the contest will be held in Warsaw, the exact venue and hosts of the 2020 Junior Eurovision have yet to be announced. This is expected to be announced by TVP …
