In just over a month’s time, all eyes will be on Gliwice Arena in Poland, where the Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2019 is set to take place. A total of 19 countries will compete on 24 November, but only one act can walk away with the trophy.
Amongst these 19 competing countries, Spain makes its return to the contest after 13 years away. Kazakhstan and Wales return for only their second time, and will be hoping to use the experience from last year to improve on their placings.
Reigning champions Poland will be aiming to be the first country to win the contest in consecutive years. Meanwhile, 2018 runner-up France has its sights on going one better in 2019.
But, before the professional jury and public have their say, we want to know who you’re rooting for. All 19 competing songs have now been released, so it’s time to see who the early favourites are.
Click on the links below to listen to all the songs, or check out the playlist. Then head down to the poll and vote for your favourites.
You can vote for as many countries as you like, including your own country (just as the public will be able to do at this year’s contest). However, remember that you can only vote once, so make it count!
