At Junior Eurovision, the online vote opens in advance ahead of the grand final, meaning you can support your favourite act every step of the way. Earlier this week, we asked you who you had voted for during the first phase of voting. And now, the results are in!

Armenia’s Maléna with “Qami Qami” is the act our readers have most voted for to win Junior Eurovision 2021.

If it weren’t for the low jury score, Portugal could’ve actually made the top 10! I told you that song will do better than expected. I guess going last really helped it.

I can see a lot of these kids going the Destiny/Stefania route. Amazing performers who can do well at the adult contest.

While I stand that JESC should have a friendly competitive aspect in terms of winning (that’s something that pushes them further in effort), I think that it would’ve been better if the voting sequence wasn’t public, and we got only top 5 places, with each getting a medal. Other places would be available for delegations to see if they choose so, but nothing would be public, unless they themselves wish to share it (with an agreement with performers and their parents). I don’t believe that anyone should be seen as less successful tonight. Honestly, all of them gave better performances… Read more »

My heart melted 19 times now. They are all adorable, as well as talented, and should do well. 🙂

I went with my instinct tonight, giving my votes to Ukraine (Olena has not only brilliantly performed, but also written her entry), Portugal (his voice is just stellar, and I like the melody), and Serbia (adorable nostalgic melody and lovely staging). Seeing people’s lists and polls, I find Serbia so underrated, and I also think that Portugal could easily be overlooked in the televote, as the song is so vintage. Nevertheless, whoever wins tonight, it will be deserving.

It’s cool that we have a 3/3. In the case of Serbia, I got so emotional, as this is the exact type of children’s tunes which were popular when I was a kid, and even when my parents were. So, it brings me to some older days when being optimistic wasn’t seen as being naive. The lyrics are so cute.

guys no matter what we think of kazakhstan’s song/vocals this year you have to admit that Beknur is a great example of defying adversity

I voted for italy , geogira and NM in the first round of voting ( i based it off what studio version songs i liked the most ) but now i solely based my votes on performance ( vocals , staging ) i voted for Ukraine , Portugal and Serbia! Ukraine bc she performed amazingly , she had amazing vocals and simple but amazing staging , Portugal , cause i think he is an amazing singer and by far one of the best! The staging was amazing and it took me away! And Serbia cause they sounded and looked amazing!… Read more »

I must say that the biggest grower for me was North Macedonia. I didn’t care for this song before the show, but live performance was really good. I also wanted to vote for them.

Sounds about right.

Armenia is clear winner. Poland seems like obvious runner up.

There’re multiple candidates for 3rd spot. Italy, Russia, Ukraine, N.Macedonia, France, Albania even

Malta is way too low. I think it will do better than everyone thinks. I think it might sneek in the top 10.

My top 5 is the following:

  1. Armenia
  2. Poland
  3. North Macedonia
  4. Georgia
  5. France

6 to 10 places:

6.Italy
7.Russia
8.Malta
9.Albania
10.The Netherlands

I don’t like 6 songs: Bulgaria, Portugal, Kazakhastan, Serbia, Ireland and Azerbaijan

I’m not surprised that Armenia is on top of the poll. Malena is a queen and will therefore seek great success for the years to come in the Armenian pop industry.

However, I’m shocked to see Kazakhstan ranking last. Alinur and Beknur are a perfect duo despite the latter’s physical imperfection, and they can be a dark horse and wow everyone in Paris tonight.

‘physical imperfection’ ?! Just wow. Do you know that basically, the human body isn’t biologically perfect to begin with ? Even when one’s have a disability ? It’s disgusting of you to consider Beknur’s body as imperfect. Plus he’s just a child!

I know nobody’s perfect. But behind Beknur’s imperfection, he has talent. He raps in the song, and he speaks English well. Also he raps in French – something nobody from Kazakhstan had done before.

If my comment about Beknur upsets you, I’m sorry.

A song is a musical composition WITH vocals. Vocals matter too.

If only people focused on moral imperfections and not the way other people look. Anyways, it’s time that arts get truly inclusive. It’s a song contest, anyone who can sing well should be allowed to participate and broadcasters should be proactive about that.

It’s so sad seeing Russia ranked so low. Looks like people don’t know she is sick. I heard she suffers from inflamed vocal chords .Anyway I hope she can sing today and good luck to eveeyone:)
