The day is finally upon us. In just a few hours, all eyes will be on Gliwice Arena in Poland where 19 competing countries will take to the stage for Junior Eurovision 2019. Only one act will walk away with the trophy.

On Friday, we asked you to tell us who you’d voted for through the online voting system of this year’s contest. After counting a total of 7,886 votes, we can reveal that Serbia’s Darija Vračević came out on top with her song “Podigni Glas (Raise Your Voice)”. You awarded her 1,055 votes, or 13.38% of all those cast.

While this poll is perhaps a small sample compared to the number of people who will vote in the actual contest (over one million votes were cast in 2018), it may suggest that Serbia will be a favourite of the public vote. We only have to wait a few hours to find out.

The silver medal in this poll goes to Armenia’s Karina Ignatyan. She picked up 966 votes (12.25%) for her song “Colours Of Your Dream”. Karina has had consistent support over the past few weeks, finishing second in both this poll and our pre-rehearsal poll. No doubt she’ll be hoping to go one better and take home the gold later this afternoon.

The last spot on the podium from these results is for Melani García. Representing Spain with the song “Marte”, she earned 840 votes (10.65%). Spain have never finished lower than fourth when competing at Junior Eurovision. Now, returning to the contest after 13 years, it seems like you think Melani has a strong chance of keeping up this track record.

Just outside the medal placings is Carla from France. Her song “Bim Bam Toi” secured 826 of your votes (10.47%). France were last year’s runners up, but are aiming to go one better and take home the trophy this year.

And rounding out the top five in this poll is North Macedonia. Mila Moskov received 649 votes (8.23%) for her song “Fire”. North Macedonia only finished in eighth position in our pre-rehearsal poll. But, it seems like Mila has been gaining fans over the past week following her fiery rehearsals.

Full result: Who have you voted for at Junior Eurovision 2019?

Of course, the official voting hasn’t actually closed yet. You have until just before the live show, 15:59 CET to be precise, to cast your vote in the first phase. The second round of voting takes place during the live broadcast and will be open for 15 minutes once all countries have performed.

Additionally, the public vote only makes up half of the total score. The professional juries, comprised of children and adults, voted during the jury show yesterday. The jury vote and public vote will then be combined together, counting for 50% of the total each.

All there is do now is sit back and enjoy the show. We wish all of this year’s contestants the best of luck – you’re all champions in our eyes!

What do you make of the poll results? Who do you think will be crowned the winner this afternoon? Where will you be watching the show? Sound off in the comments!

As usual, these polls are totally useless. Spanish and Serbian trolls are present, of course. I didn’t mind Armenia for the win, but I’m glad for Poland, their song was one of the best (even better than in 2018)…

Good show! No-one with a great song absolutely nailed the performance to the extent that Roksana did last year and that is why it is so hard to predict!
It could be any one of 7-8 different songs.

Based on performance, I think the Netherlands should win.
The best songs are Ukraine, France, Spain and Poland.
Good luck to all.

Serbia has a brilliant song so I wouldn’t be shocked if they won, but Armenia and Poland have top quality songs good enough for Eurovision so don’t write them off, and Georgia is great as well so.
Poland
Armenia
Georgia
Serbia
and France should be the top 5

I hope Serbia and Northmacedonia get top 5 but you never know before the crazy online voting. They can be on top by the jury then get and 19th place and 18th place by the online voting. Millions of polish,spanish and dutch voters who ONLY vote for Poland,Spain,Netherlands can make that happen. i dont hope so but we will see.
