Junior Eurovision Song Contest



Back in 2000 the Danish broadcaster Denmark's Radio (DR) held a song contest for children, and in 2002 the "MGP Nordic" was held together with Sweden and Norway. EBU picked up the idea for a song contest featuring children, and the first Junior Eurovision Song Contest was held in 2003 in Copenhagen, with 16 participating countries.

Junior Eurovision is only open for children aged 10 to 15, and the children have to write the songs themselves, allowed assistant from adults.
