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.
