After a week of rehearsals, the stage is finally ready for Junior Eurovision 2019 this Sunday. The online voting platform is now live ahead of the contest and you can finally have your say about who you think should win this year’s contest.
There are 19 countries taking part in this year’s competition. Reigning champions Poland are hoping to be the first country to win the contest in back-to-back years. However, there are many others who are itching to take the crown off them.
Like the past two years, the public vote for this year’s contest is done online. After watching a clip of the rehearsal footage from each act, you can vote for between three and five countries (including your own country should you wish to).
But, since the result of this voting is kept behind closed doors until the contest, we thought we’d run our own poll to see who you’ve voted for. Hopefully, this should give us some insight into where the points may be going at the end of Sunday’s show.
Russia came out on top of our pre-rehearsal poll. Armenia and Serbia followed closely behind in second and third respectively. Meanwhile, Poland and Spain rounded out the top five. But, have you had a change of heart after watching the rehearsal footage?
If you haven’t already, be sure to go and vote over at junioreurovision.tv here. Then, come back here and vote in our poll for the exact same countries.
As with the official voting, you’ll be limited to a maximum of five countries and will only be able to vote once. The poll will stay open until Sunday morning (although you have until 15:59 CET on Sunday to vote in the actual contest).
