Junior Eurovision 2021 will finally get underway next Sunday 19 December, with 19 countries hoping to take away the trophy. 

A few weeks ago, we asked you to vote for your favourites based on the studio cuts of this year’s entries. Y’all made your voices heard and cast a total of 20,508 votes.

And now we have the results…

Russia’s Tanya Mezhentseva a favourite in Junior Eurovision 2021

Coming out on top of the poll is Tanya Mezhentseva from Russia. Her song “Mon Ami” picked up 3,358 votes, which is 16.37% of all those cast.

Tanya returns to Junior Eurovision after previously representing Russia in 2019. She topped our pre-rehearsal poll two years ago as well, alongside her duet partner Deberel Oorzhak. It seems Tanya has retained many of her fans from the last time she competed at the contest.

Second place in our poll goes to Armenia’s Maléna. Although she had been selected to represent her country at last year’s contest, Maléna unfortunately didn’t get the opportunity in the end after Armenia withdrew.

However, she’s come back in 2021 with a bang. The fandom instantly went wild as soon as she released her song “Qami Qami”, and this is naturally represented in these poll results. Maléna earned 2,258 votes (11.01% of the total).

The final spot on the poll’s podium is for Niko Kajaia from Georgia. He’s aiming to put a grin on everyone’s face with his entry “Let’s Count The Smiles”. And it seems he’s already succeeding at doing just that, as he encouraged 1,456 of y’all to vote for him (that’s 7.10% of the total number of votes).

While many contestants decide to add some extra English-language lyrics into their songs, Niko instead sings the majority of the chorus in French – making it a perfect song for a contest held in Paris.

Full results: Who should win Junior Eurovision 2021?

  1. Russia: Tanya Mezhentseva – “Mon Ami” – 3,358 votes (16.37%)

  19. Kazakhstan: Alinur Khamzin and Beknur Zhanibekuly “Ertegi alemi (Fairy World)” – 471 votes (2.30%)

Total votes: 20,508

However, these results only tell half the story. Things could all change once we see the final performances and how each country presents their song on stage.

Online voting is set to open at the end of this week. 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.

Do you agree with the poll results? Are you rooting for Tanya Mezhentseva in Junior Eurovision 2021, or will someone else get your vote? Let us know in the comments below!

Wow, didn’t expect Georgia at 3rd! I don’t know why, but even though I like Mon Ami, something makes me wish that some other country would win. I feel the same for Armenia (I love the song). It’s just that they’re so polished and so good, these two songs are so different from what we generally see at JESC. If Italy, North Macedonia or Ukraine win, it will be an absolute shock for me. Actually, ever since Armenia & Russia released their songs, everyone started to forget about Poland, right? I remember that everyone used to have Poland as their… Read more »

Don’t like those songs, and what’s more, I think there’re not JESC at all. Having taste is not a crime.

I’m sooo surprised. I love Georgia’s entry so much and I didn’t expect Georgia could be so popular. I sincerely hope Niko will get a good result, maybe he could win EurovisionJr this year!

I am pretty sure Poland will take it. Which is great news as it is a very good song.

At this point some meaningful entries might not even have the chance to score really great scores by the end of the evening, it’s such a great year! To find all these artists who could be potential entrants even in ESC is always so surreal! I sure will keep these artists on my playlists!

Merry Christmas everyone!

If we look at all those letters that are done like this in italic: ABC, there seems to be something less nice as a hidden message..
