Voting: National juries & online

The results and winner of Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2019 will be decided by national juries and, for the third time, viewers from around the world through online voting.

Each participating country has a national jury consisting of music industry professionals and kids. The jurors will watch the Jury Rehearsal (on Saturday 23 November) and cast their votes right after. The national juries determine 50% of the result.

The online voting takes place in two phases:

  1. Online voting before the show (snippets of rehearsal)
    • Vote online: Friday 22 Nov. 20:00 Sunday 24 Nov. 16:00
    • You have to watch a recap of all the songs (rehearsals), before you can cast your vote
    • You can vote for 3, 4 or 5 countries, including your own country's song
    • After this, you can watch longer clips from each participant's rehearsal
  2. Online voting during the show
    • Vote online after the last performance at the live show, and the next 15 minutes
    • You can vote for 3, 4 or 5 countries, including your own country's song
    • The votes will be turned into points. The amount of points will be determined by the percentage of votes received.

The votes based on snippets of a rehearsal (phase 1) will be added to the votes from the performance in the live show (phase 2), meaning that the result of Junior Eurovision 2019 will partly be based on a short snippet.

History of Junior Eurovision

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.

Back then the Junior Eurovision was based on entertainment for kids around Europe. On their level. It has later transformed itself to a copy of the "adult's Eurovision", lacking the soul and unique atmosphere it once had.

Junior Eurovision is only open for children aged 9 to 14.
