Viki Gabor Junior Eurovision 2019 Winner Poland

Junior Eurovision 2019 saw 19 countries take to the stage in Gliwice Poland. France’s Carla took us inside a comic book. Spain’s Melani Garcia brought nautical realness. And Serbia’s Darija Vračević warned us what could happen if we don’t raise our voices against climate change.

Unfortunately, and despite all the immense talent on display, only one act could win. This year’s honour goes to Viki Gabor from Poland with her song “Superhero”.

Junior Eurovision 2019 Winner — Poland’s Viki Gabor with “Superhero”

Seven point one million. That’s the number of YouTube views Viki had amassed for “Superhero” across her national final performance, the studio cut and the official music video. Going off those figures alone, it was safe to say that Poland was never likely to fall victim to the notorious host nation curse.

“Superhero” is a contemporary dance-pop number which calls upon young people to fight to protect the environment… a battle that’s much more pressing than any tiffs the Avengers might have with Thanos. Melting ice caps and a giant countdown made sure the message wasn’t lost on anyone. Some sign language enhanced the universality of the entry’s themes.

Poland becomes the first country to win Junior Eurovision on back-to-back occasions.

Read the lyrics of the Junior Eurovision 2019 winning song.

Junior Eurovision 2019 Voting Method

Keeping with the voting mechanism from the 2017 and 2018 contests, JESC 2019 officials opened the voting a few days before the show began.  On Friday, after all countries had completed their second rehearsals, fans all over the world were invited to cast their votes.  After sitting through a short recap of all the performances, fans were able to vote for either 3, 4 or 5 entries of their choice.  If they needed more convincing, longer snippets of each participants stage-show were available.

The first wave of voting lasted up until the live show began, during which fans could vote once per device for their favourite acts.  As soon as all countries had had their performance, the voting was open for a second round for 15 minutes, giving fans another opportunity to voice their opinion on the contest.

All of the results were announced during the show with the jury results revealed first followed by the online votes.

However, with Poland’s seeming dominance of the online vote, will it need to be revised for 2020?

What do you think of the results? Were you surprised by the jury or the televote? Let us know down below.

And she wasn’t finished there. Just a year later Lanberry succeeded once again in the competition, co-penning Poland’s second Junior Eurovision winner in two years with “Superhero”  sung by Viki Gabor. […]

if EBU will have online voting in ESC , Poland will have a lot of wins to. If i was polish i would hate the online sistem in JESC. How fun is it to win 4-5 times in a row when you know the biggest audience who votes and watching is polish ? 7 million people. I would think that was unfair if i was polish but i guess polish dont think like i do.

Here my thoughts on this Junior Eurovision: – The best JESC stage ever and one of the best in all Eurovision editions. It was amazing! – Awful hosts, specially the man. Roksana could’ve done it all alone better. The English they spoke was very difficult to understand, is the way all Polish people speak English? – Bad graphics, the scoreboard with the comets looked very amateur. – Bad postcards. There is only one city in Poland? They wasted the chance to show Warsaw, Krakow, Gdansk… I wanted to see more of that beautiful country at the first time they host… Read more »

I’m from Poland and I do agree that allowing to vote for your own country is extremely stupid idea. They will probably fix it next year. Please keep in mind that JESC isn’t that popular in Poland normally, none TV show is these days, as fewer and fewer people watch TV. That massive audience comes from the fact that we hosted JESC and it was widely advertised over here in Poland.

There’s an interesting article from a Spanish TV reviewer about what TVE could learn from Melani’s third place for the senior Eurovision. I’ll leave you some quotes from it: – “Melani García hasn’t just shone at Junior Eurovision finishing third with ‘Marte’, she has also taught a lesson to [Spain’s] latest candidacies for the senior Eurovision: coherence.” – “Melani wasn’t disguised as something she was not, as did happen, to varying extents, to Miki, Alfred and Amaia or Manel Navarro. With ‘Marte’, they designed a solid entry, with an impeccable wrapping, focusing the staging, lighting and realization in the child’s… Read more »

That’s a very good article. Connecting with the camera is more important than people usually think it is. It can be the difference between being absorbed by a performance or losing interest, especially now that we live in a short attention-span world. Miki had the potential to do what Melani did, because he’s extremely likeable, but they gave so much for him to do on the stage, that it was hard to connect with him.

I feel like you just want Poland to do terrible or withdraw from ESC/JESC when I see what you write here:
-Poland does well on JESC – “only because they vote for themself and no jury votes doesn’t matter”
-Poland does bad on JESC – “whatever”
-Poland manages to get to final in ESC – “hurr durr DIASPORA hurr durr”
-Poland stays in semi final on ESC – “whatever”

I can already imagine amount of hate we would get if we ever won ESC. I’ve never realised how toxic this community is.

You shouldn’t take it personally. That’s what most countries would do (rig the running order, massively vote for themselves etc.) under the same set of rules, so Poland has just jumped on the bandwagon, nothing more. And – that’s the attitude quite a number of countries gets in the 4 cases you mention, Poland is no exception. What I’m trying to say is – no-one has anything against Poland as Poland, to me it seems as if everybody (including Poles who are not too absorbed in their own victory) is enraged by the half-baked EBU rules for JESC.

We are not getting out of Poland unless the “public” voting changes. It doesn’t make any sense to vote for your own country.

I’m aware my country, Spain , also received a lot of points from self voting, but it is on a different scale. I would dare to say Kazakhistan is the real winner. Also, “Superhero” was no more than a pop superstar reject transalated into Polish with some lyrics change to fit… Read more »

Here are my comments on some of the results / performances: 1. Poland – For the 3rd year in a row, the online voting has gone heavily for an upbeat, teen-pop sort of song. The old televote, in contrast, tended to go along with the juries. My feeling is that teen/pre-teen fanbases are driving the online voting, whereas the old televote was parents and adult ESC fans. Poland’s song this year was low on my personal ranking, but I see why it would be popular, and as I said before, all of the elements in the package (composition, lyrics, staging,… Read more »

How can you blame the spots? Spain finished 3rd, France 5th, so they didn’t end up in the bottom 5 as everyone expected and lamented about. Please remember that there can be only one winner so is the top 5 placing really that bad? If the song is good it will defend itself from any spot, no matter drawn or determined.

Poland was a deserved winner and was the entry that bridged the gap between televoter preferences and jury preferences the best. However, it was not 62 pts better than the rest of the pack and the online vote really needs to go. It’s getting to the point that a Polish entry that finishes 8th or above in the jury vote becomes the favourite to win going into the public vote (bit like Russia in the ESC contest at times). As for the rest of the results, I was really pleased! The top three was correct and the next three (although… Read more »

This song ended up 2nd with juries and unless you think that Kazakhstan would get more voted than Poland if “voting on your country” wasn’t allowed, you have no basis to trash talk.

Have to agree with Dawid and with you Rasmus (because I see your point) – fact is, that the online voting system works great and the people voted over 3.7 Million times (if I remember that correctly) – but on thing is for sure – the EBU has to “revamp” that system and make sure that you can’t place a vote for your own country. When they can fix that, it is a fair voting system (and people from all over the world are able to vote).

To all those saying that Poland got 40% of the online vote, they didn’t. They got 15%. I agree that the system needs to be revised, but do people have to take it out on the winner and others that did well? I’ve seen on wikipedia people spamming the page and calling the girl from Poland “Piggy Gabor” and the Kazakh boy “The chinese kid”, It’s really uncalled for. These are children just trying to show off what they can do and have a good time and people think it’s okay to bully them like that? It disgusts me. It’s… Read more »

What should Malta, Ireland, Wales, Portugal, Serbia, North Macedonia, Albania, Georgia, Belarus do now? With this sistem ONLY big countries can win with over 10 million people. i think all should quit. They will never win with online voting. Never

They’ll probably change the vote system under the pressure of the public. Tbh I don’t care because all my favorites finished high or at least in the top 10.

My ultimate takeaways from the show: – Overall, the show was really good. The stage was fantastic and the LED was perhaps the best we’ve seen Adult or Junior. It was all so sophisticated. – Interesting how the juries did not like Poland and Kazakhstan last year (with better songs) and then come 1st and 2nd with the juries this year. – This Kazakh entry is now their best placing entry. I feel a little disappointed that this was their best placing entry and not last year. I feel like both songs were jury bait. – Talking further about Kazakhstan,… Read more »

Love it when I read “Worst JESC ever” from people who can’t stand the voting system… those people don’t understand anything about what’s important in this contest. The voting system is not fair? I agree with you. But it doesn’t mean the whole contest is bullshit. This JESC was by far the best I’ve ever seen because of the quality of the songs and singers. Today we saw really talented boys and girls. They showed their art and that’s what matter 😉 Plus all the best countries received good points except for Malta who deserved so much more. The results… Read more »

I hope Poland won’t host next year. The allocation draw made by TVP was a huge mistake. I also expect the online voting to be deleted or changed. Because it is simply just catastrophic. JESC voting needs to change to be fairer, or countries will withdraw from it. I’m really disappointed by this edition of the JESC. The visuals were incredible but the results were unfair.

If Poland hosts next year, DEAL WITH IT! 😉

I would like Poland to host again. The scene the show’s producers offered this year was really good. But the allocation draw made by TVP was really unfair for all of Poland’s challengers, especially France, North Macedonia and Spain. Don’t deny it.

you are very bias when its concerning JESC. you know online voting isnt good then Poland gets 40% of the votes from mainly polish. And the other songs was not that bad

TVP didn´t make the running order…

They had like two representatives out of at least 10 in a specialised group of producers from across Europe. The same number of reps as France ironically

If Poland won’t host next year, does that mean it will be in Kazakhstan? I’m sure they’d jump at the chance to show they could do a good job, and I’m sure they would do just that.

Spain has said before the results came out, that they would like to host 2020 if Melani wins. Kazakhstan has the problem, that they have to be invited to the show by the host ( because they are no member of the EBU) – so if they want to host they have to ask themself for permission to take part in JESC 2020 ? Mmmmmmh , that sounds strange.

Just watched on Youtube and it was a great show. All countries should be proud of what they’ve done, especially Poland who hosted it beautifully. It’s obvious that the voting system needs to be reviewed. Unfortunately it creates distortions (it’s absurd that you can vote for your own country) and with it any final result will get under suspicion, even a fair one. But let’s remember that the artists are just doing their job, they’re not the ones to blame. Those kids are brilliant and I would love to see them getting to adult Eurovision someday.

Notice that I took the “Purple Mask’s no comment road” about the result I disagree with. 🙂 I had a good time watching a bunch of talented kids having fun on the stage. I guess that’s what the Junior competition should always be about. And I honestly believe every single one of them did a great job today.

Yes, they did do a good job. And yes I noticed the no comment approach, haha. 🙂
As for child labour and all those things we can’t talk about… I try to be supportive of JESC, but the truth is I would scrap it in a heartbeat if I were Executive Producer. Kids under that much pressure just doesn’t work for me as good TV. So while I always admire your positive sentiment, it is taken along with some salt this time around.

I understand the feeling. I’m also a little uncomfortable about kids on talent/singing shows, even if some of them were born to do that. I hope at least they have the right support by their family and the broadcasters.

Congratulations to Poland.
It’s a good song, and I understand why it won the junior title.
The bigger story is perhaps the online social media language? Europe: The kids are not alright. Or are they actually just being adults? It’s confusing. Not long until the 2020s next. Share the joy.

First of all congratulations to Poland. The song was really deserving to win. Of course the voting procedure should be revised as it is not pretty fair, but at the same time good song won. As for me, I would be happier for French victory or for Macedonian. However, seeing Poland winning is much more pleasant than Kazakhstan because it was really for kids, really for fun and with the message. And we need to admit that juries loved it either. I am sure no one will recall the melody of Kazakh song or even the song at all while… Read more »

The Kazakh boy is a fantastic vocalist, so I actually don’t mind he winning the jury vote. Though the juries, both in the kids’ and in the adults’ competition seem too attached to vocal skills and production values. Songwriting sometimes feels like the last of their concerns, which only reinforces that we need more diversity between jurors.
