This year’s Junior Eurovision Song Contest is simply too close to call. The quality of songs is, in our opinion, stronger than some of the recent editions of the adult Eurovision. But, as always, we’ve attempted to look into a crystal ball and provide some kind of forecast for who will win JESC 2015. After combining the results of our JESC 2015 fan poll and the results of the Wiwi Jury, we are pleased to announce that Malta’s Destiny Chukunyere has emerged as our winner.

This comes with several caveats. First of all, all of the songs were reviewed by the Wiwi Jury using official music videos. Our fan poll was also open long before anyone saw the acts live. Therefore these rankings and assessments do not account for rehearsals (which you can watch here), staging, or live vocals. Russia, for instance, blew many of us away the moment we heard it live. Had we reviewed these songs after rehearsals these results may have been significantly different. In any event, here is how things panned out.

Combined Fan Poll-Wiwi Jury vote

The act that placed first in each category received 17 points. The act that placed second received 16 points and so on. Ties were broken using the results of our international jury.

My full top 17 1. Armenia (A danceable song) 2. Russia (Unique song, in a positive way) 3. Georgia (As many of those who like it would say: it looks like they are having fun and when they are having fun, I think it’s fun) 4. Slovenia (It is a good song in the same style as “Let it go” and “Verjamem”, I like it) 5. Serbia (Go Mini-Bojana, this song is awesome) 6. Malta (I like it, because I’ve never heard a similar song in JESC, but I still hear similarities with “Forget you” by Cee lo Green) 7.… Read more »

My prediction for TOP 5 in final
1. Australia (thanks to overrated juries votes like Sweden 2015 in adult contest)
2. Armenia
3. Georgia
4. Malta (thanks to juries)
5. Russia (thanks to televote, many points from ex URRS, plus huge votes from Bulgaria, Serbia, Montenegro)

My TOP 5 before rehearsals was
1. Armenia
2. Georgia
3. Australia
4. Serbia
5. Albania

But after rehearsals I change my TOP 5
1. Georgia
2. Ireland
3. Armenia
4. Australia
5. Serbia

San Marino is definitely underrated, as well as Russia. And I think it’s pretty obvious that nobody outside of Georgia would give so much to Georgia..

If you would like to read what I wrote yesterday before the JESC jury final here’s the link, (it’s quite long though) :- https://www.eurovisionfamily.tv/blog/read?id=320127 This is my TOP 10, (in Alphabetical order of course) :- ARMENIA AUSTRALIA BELARUS IRELAND MALTA RUSSIA SAN MARINO SERBIA SLOVENIA UKRAINE In the 12 year history the first NINE 9 songs were all uptempo, but the last 3 have been ballads!! 2015 is a very heavy ballad dominated year of course. So will it be Uptempo or ballad this year? Its wide open and to be honest any of the 10 above could win really!!!… Read more »

Any of the first four wins and I’ll be happy. I also like San Marino, Russia and Ireland. Georgia is really bad. Only made it up there because of Georgian fanatics…. from Georgia.
