One more year Children are pretending they are adult pop stars in the 2016 Junior Eurovision Song Contest. Because it is a contest the same question is posted every year: are these children prepared to deal with the frustration of not winning? How will the victory affect the future life of the winner?
The previous questions wouldn’t be so important if the show was not so professional year after year with great performances, dancers and outfits pressuring these children to be the Top of the Super Children!
And because the contest took part for the first time 14 years ago, if children are very very frustrated by not winning they can try again the Adult ESC in their future. Is not a surprise that we find junior participants in various National Finals every year.
But polemics apart, the annual Junior Eurovision Song Contest will take place at the Mediterranean Conference Centre, in Valletta, Malta. This will be the second time that Malta is the host of this event.
This time 17 countries will compete (the record was 18 participants in 2004) with Cyprus, Israel and Poland as returning countries. The record of participants would be higher without the withdrawing countries San Marino, Montenegro and Slovenia.
But the best of this contest is in our opinion that children sing mostly in their own languages keeping the authenticity of a European contest assuming differences among the participant countries with the recognition and the important educational role that it has. It’s obvious all children cannot sing in English and we like it like that.
The televoting will be replaced! Is it Junior an experience for the adult contest? Points will be awarded based on a 50/50 combination of each country’s Adult and Kids' Jury, to be announced by a spokesperson. This will bring an end to the use of televoting for the first time. Following these results, three expert jurors will also announce their points from 1-8, 10, and 12. These professionals are Christer Björkman, Mads Grimstad, and Jedward.
Poli Genova who represented Bulgaria in the Eurovision Song Contest in 2011 and in 2016 and also hosted the Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2015, will be part of the interval acts such as Jedwards!
It seems that Russia, Malta and Bulgaria are the favorites! Tomorrow we will see the result!

This will be the first time that the Bulgarian national broadcaster, Bulgarian National Television (BNT), are organising an Eurovision event after reaching the second place last year in the junior contest.
Seventeen countries will participate, with Australia and Ireland making their debut at the 2015 contest. Albania and Macedonia will return while Croatia and Cyprus withdraws. Sweden, the winner of the senior Song Contest this year, will be withdrawing for the first time since 2008.
Participants and running order:
Georgia, Malta and Slovenia seemed to be the favourite to win.
Norway: an internal product
Last week, Universal Music Group released the CD containing all the songs of Junior ESC. Interesting fact is that the CD from the Melodi Grand Prix Junior from Norway is number 4 in the official Album Charts of the scandinavian country.
The Melodi Grand Prix Junior was the anual event and format used to select the entry for Junior Eurovision when Norway took part on it Between 2003 and 2005, before NRK decided to withdraw from the contest.
Also interesting is the fact that MARCUS & MARTINUS, the winners of MGP Junior from 2012 hitted the album charts at number 1. Definitely, Norway adopted the supposed national final of Junior for internal consumption.
Bulgaria placed second last year and Italy was the previous winner.
