The wait is almost over. Next Sunday 24th November, the Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2019 will take place in Gliwice, Poland. A month ago, we asked you who you think should win this year’s contest based on the studio cut of all 19 competing songs. Now, we can reveal that Russia, Armenia and Serbia came out on top of the poll.

We received a total of 25,369 votes. Earning the highest number of those were Russia’s Tatyana Mezhentseva and Deberel Oorzhak with “A Time For Us”. The duo received 5,041 votes, which is 19.87% of all those cast. Russia last won the contest in 2017. Will they be taking the trophy back to Moscow once again just two years later?

Armenia’s Karina Ignatyan came in second place. Her song “Colours of Your Dream” picked up 4,256 votes, or 16.78% of the total. It’s been nine years since the country won Junior Eurovision, but it seems you think 2019 could be the year they have a chance of returning to the very top of the scoreboard.

In third position is Serbia. Darija Vračević asked you all to “Raise Your Voice”, and y’all did so in support of her. She received 2,942 votes, which is 11.60% of all those cast.

Just missing out on a medal finish is Viki Gabor, who is representing the host nation with the song “Superhero”. Poland are hoping to become the first country to ever win Junior Eurovision in consecutive years and you seem to think they have a reasonable chance of doing so, awarding her 2,806 votes (11.06%).

Finishing off the top five is Spain. Melani García picked up 2,085 votes (8.22%) for her environmental-themed song “Marte”. Meanwhile, France’s Carla secured sixth position in the poll, after receiving 1,813 votes (7.15%) for “Bim Bam Toi”.

Full Results: Who should win Junior Eurovision 2019?

However, these results only tell half the story. Things could all change once rehearsals begin this week and we see how each country represents their song on stage.

The online voting system is set to open on Friday 22 November after all countries have had their second rehearsal. When it does so, we’ll also open a flash poll and ask you to choose who you’ve officially voted for. This might be able to give us an insight into where the votes will be heading come Sunday afternoon.

Junior Eurovision 2019 Poll Results: Geographical Breakdown

This poll was conducted using Polldaddy software and the system isn’t sophisticated enough to identify which countries votes originate from. However, our website analytics provide some insights. Listed below are all 19 participating countries and the percentage of total page views for the poll from each one.

While not everyone who viewed the page voted and not everyone voted for their own countries, these figures may give some idea as to which entries are popular across the board and which ones are overly reliant on local support. However, it should be remembered that, unlike in May’s Eurovision Song Contest, viewers can vote for their own countries at Junior Eurovision.

  1. Russia — 49.84%
  2. Armenia — 14.48%
  3. Serbia — 5.03%
  4. Belarus — 3.51%
  5. Poland — 3.04%
  6. Spain — 2.09%
  7. United Kingdom (incl. Wales) — 1.85%
  8. Netherlands — 1.25%
  9. France — 1.08%
  10. Georgia — 0.96%
  11. Albania — 0.74%
  12. Australia — 0.69%
  13. North Macedonia — 0.57%
  14. Ireland — 0.56%
  15. Italy — 0.43%
  16. Ukraine — 0.42%
  17. Kazakhstan — 0.41%
  18. Malta — 0.43%
  19. Portugal — 0.25%
  20. Other Countries — 12.37%

I knew Russian hackers did that magic, my people need to stop messing up with votings abroad , and to create real and fair voting in Russia. That way the country will steer develop and get rid of crazy leaders

Russia won’t win because of jury. I do not like Russia song 2019, but to be honest it’s still better than most winners of JESC.

I have a sneaking suspicion that Ireland is really going to slay in Poland along with North Macedonia and Spain, and even though I think France is good i just see it flopping

People be trippin’! Take these results with a pinch of salt. In this poll, voters could vote for any number of entries. I am sure that many people just voted for their own country alone (and honestly, can you really blame someone for wanting to support their country?). At JESC, you can vote for 3-5 countries, and this evens out the playing field. To highlight this point, let’s look at the performance of the nation’s who get the most slack for having high viewership numbers, over the past two years in which online voting was used. Russia only came out… Read more »

Wow! Finally! I thought that only I and Dawid think rationally about all that situation with voting, but no! There are more of us 😀

Hehe, I think that what it boils down to is sour grapes. Ukraine had a viewership of 2.5 million for JESC2018. Belarus had a viewership of over 1.3 million. France had 1.16 million viewers. So, just like Russia and Poland (which FYI only had a viewership of 419,000 last year), they are among the nations with the highest JESC viewership, which according to many people here, would equate to more votes for their country. So why then does Poland and Russia only get the slack, with people saying “Polish fans will make their points soar” and “Russia will over-hype their… Read more »

Great analysis! But you lost me with the Daz Sampson reference.

After he performed his song at the grand final of Eurovision 2006, he said “Thank you, vote for the music!”. Apparently, he said this due to the negative perception the UK received at the time, brought about by the invasion of Iraq three years earlier, which potentially had contributed to the poor Eurovision results of the UK during that period (People, please don’t annihilate me for saying this… I am just telling what I heard through the grapevine… The views expressed in this statement do not necessarily reflect mines. Lol). Oh, and one of my favorite comments that I read… Read more »

The most interesting part is those that voted for their own country. We’re 9th so now when I will say to people I know that the contest (Junior or adult version) is not popular in my country (not the fans just the people in general) they may believe me. ‘^^ Interesting to see that Spain and UK are the most patriotic of the Big 5 and Italy and France the least (I don’t know about Germany since they aren’t competing). My bet is on a Spanish or a Polish victory. The only good thing is we don’t have pressure and… Read more »

I predict the Netherlands manage to get near to or into top-5, cause their song is different from most of them and Matheu usually nails it live.

The Serbian performance promises to be interesting because the person responsible for the success of Montenegro in 2015 is to help

It’s the choreographer for Montenegro’s JESC2015 performance… In all fairness, the 13th position they achieved that year is their best result to date, so I guess it was a “success”. Lol
