I gave my votes here bases on either great live vocals or stagings I really liked 😛
In terms of staging, I want to notice Albania and France for bringing something really great
In terms of vocals, I mean, they’re all basically talented and accurate but one’s gotta appreciate Armenia, N. Macedonia, Ukraine and Azerbaijan 🙂
I think everyone was fantastic and did a great job and I wish them all the best of luck ?

You can’t deny that Olena’s vocals are by far the best, I’m definitely voting for her!

I’m so impressed by all rehearsals they are all beautiful the only one I was disappointed in was Ireland and Malta from yesterday I am very intrigued about Bulgaria though it looks really beautiful and seeing the picture it looks beautiful Malena did amazing Serbia surprised me a lot Albania is here to win with that staging it’s so cool I’m just hoping it does not look messy on the night France expected but still really well done Tanya I know she did not actually sing in the clip for health reasons but I believe she could do it live… Read more »

Hello everyone! Only three days to go! Whoo! All the stagings are awesome, France, Russia and Ukraine are amazing! Totally didn’t expect Serbia’s staging to be like that, it’s very different and I love it. Love Sona’s dress so much, but no one’s talking about Kazakhstan, Alinur’s vocals were superb! And Armenia, I was expecting the staging to be polished and everything, but I don’t know why, I just don’t like Málena’s outfit. I was thinking they were gonna use an outfit similar to the one in the music video. Anyways, hope Tanya feels better soon, and I wish luck… Read more »

Tbh, many adults watching Armenia’s performance, rotting for her, hearing that high note, saying she is slay are making me tired… Junior Eurovision is a competition for children. So sometimes, imperfect is perfect, I want to see those innocent and adorable children on stage, not some rebellious teenagers on the verge of maturity. Malena is about to celebrate her 15th birthday in January 2022, Isn’t there a rule that contestants have to be under the age 14 to participate in this contest? Anyway, good luck to all contestants.

the rule is ages 9-14, malena is allowed to participate. JESC is more than just cute, childish songs, you can’t expect every single song to be like j’imagine. I also find it quite rude that you’re going to extent to quesiton her eligibility to participate and calling her a “rebellious teen” you dont even know her.

I think it’s more that people just hate hearing the ‘too mature’ sentence, and I can’t blame them

Say what you want, but 14 is the maximum age to participate in the Junior Eurovision Song Contest. Malena already screams “WINNER” in our ears because her song’s quality is way beyond Junior Eurovision – and this is a contest for kids and early teens.

I think that Jesc should be 10-15 like it used to be , In my opinion , Having it 9-14 leaves out the 15 year old’s

Ofcourse armenia got the most votes, getting pretty bored with everyone hyping up armenia, its a good song but saying yes slay queen winner performance everything is just a bit overhyping it. Tbh i really hope macedonia winning in the end

I think Azerbaijan was the best while Bulgaria’s entry was the worst singingwise, on the style of the staging Ukraine really flopped! It’s good that atleast some countries are bringing their best to the stage.

I’d say France got me the most. Armenia is on point but I was expecting it. Armenia reminds of some past winners, specially those from Poland. So this could be the winner this time. I’d prefer something less mature tbh.

I like the Armenian song, but now that you say that it’s a copy of past winners it makes it a bit bad if Qami Qami would end up winning. Copycats should just stay at home!

so u don’t have your own brain that ur influenced by what others say? armenia is out of this world and the only thing it has in common with past winners is that it has that winner vibes. get a grip for real.

I am very surprised by the level of the junior, I keep my fingers crossed the most, for North Macedonia they must be high after being surprised by Mila’s performance in 2019, they deserve success and it shows

France, Armenia and Russia all gave me possible winner vibes but Albania and North Macedonia are my guilty pleasures, they could definitely make top 5. I have a soft spot for Enzo though, he’s really charismatic and I wouldn’t mind another French victory, they’ve been killing it for years now and Poland managed to do it two years in a row, so why not France too.

Albania has been so timid with staging in the adult competition, so it was a great surprise to see what they got for JESC. France, Russia and Armenia are also taking it very seriously.

Azerbaijan sounds like that entry that does well with the jury even if the audience is ignoring it. On a silly ending note: I wish I was as cool as Olena when I had her age! Love both the haircut and the clothes.

This was such a great day of rehearsals! We got Azerbaijan, Ukraine and Kazakhstan serving simple stagings with fantastic vocals, Albania, France and Russia with killer stagings, Armenia and North Macedonia giving great choreographies and finally Serbia and Bulgaria elevating their songs with perfect stagings! I can’t wait for Sunday, I’m still rooting for Armenia and North Macedonia.
