Since Sunday fans of Junior Eurovision have been humming Maléna’s winning entry “Qami, Qami”. And now, following Armenia’s second win at JESC, the country’s team says it is ready to host the contest.

Writing on Instagram, Armenian Public Television’s Eurovision boss David Tserunyan made it clear the nation is ready to embrace fans once again following their last hosting in 2011.

David, who is also the producer of the domestic hit Masked Singer Armenia, punctuated his message with a series of high-impact emojis, including the “heart eyes”, “celebrate” and “red heart” icons. His love for JESC is real and Yerevan is ready to unleash its passion once more.

The Armenian delegation has been riding a high ever since their victory on Sunday. They topped the televote and came third with the professional juries, showing there was widespread agreement on the quality of their song and stage show.

Despite weeks of whispers that they were in contention to take the crown, the delegation looked truly shocked (and maybe a little relieved!) when Maléna was confirmed as the new JESC queen.

As you can see in the video gallery below, particularly the second slide, both adults and children were overwhelmed by the enormity of what was unfolding.

The men in suits are happy too.

Hovhannes Movsisyan, CEO of Armenian Public Television said:

“From the very first day we released Qami Qami we believed in Malena’s victory and were looking forward to hosting this major event. Armenians are very excited about our comeback into the Eurovision family, and even more thrilled to host this spectacular event next year. Welcome to Armenia!”

Martin Österdahl, Executive Supervisor of the Junior Eurovision Song Contest, said:

“Armenia’s cool, classy, contemporary winner set a new standard for the competition. Their enthusiasm for the event is unmatched and we are excited that AMPTV want to host the 20th edition of the JESC next year. We look forward to working with them on planning a very special anniversary edition of the show.”

EBU Director General Noel Curran said:

“We were thrilled to see Armenia win their 2nd Junior Eurovision in Paris this weekend and congratulate Maléna and AMPTV’s hard working delegation on their stunning victory. We welcome the enthusiasm from our Armenian member for hosting the 20th Junior Eurovision Song Contest and are anticipating a great collaboration between the EBU and AMPTV over the coming months.”

I was reading comments and didn’t want to reply, but here people are commenting something without really having enough information about how the things are. Armenia has never prohibited people entering the country of ANY nationality. Anyone from Azerbaijan could take part in any cultural, sport or any other event. That was Azerbaijan who was blocking citizens of any country of Armenian origin entering the country. Like sport journalists with Armenian names were not allowed in. Even in rare cases when people were allowed in, they were under serious danger to be attacked and harmed. Budapest murder was very indicative.… Read more »

I just hope that all this talk about Azerbaijan withdrawing next year would lead to something. Why is the EBU not paying attention to this Azerbaijan-Armenia problem?? Did the EBU impose a fine on Armenia for withdrawing from ESC in 2012? Since they took part in JESC that very year, they shouldn’t have had any problem with participating in Baku. When will these two countries have diplomatic relations with each other? I’m just so tired of them being so petty each year. (Please excuse me for my anger and I apologize if I am offending anyone. Peace out 🙂

Actually EBU did impose a fine on the Armenian broadcaster ($120,000) to be exact and forced the Armenian broadcaster to air the entire show uninterruptedly which they did, including the part where Azebaijan’s postcard titled Karabagh was aired. But let’s start with all of Azeri violations with no consequences. I’ll let you start since you’re so angry.

Everyone here is talking about whether Azerbaijan will withdraw or not. My opinion? Let them out. And ban them for some years. They need a serious lesson after cheating all these years and sending plastic entries. I’m talking mostly about the Adult Eurovision, but I suspect that their behaviour is the same in Junior Eurovision too. Azerbaijan never learns…

“Why” was the song for Junior Eurovision 2020, this comment talking about Armenia’s hidden 2021 entry and claims that Qami Qami was to represent Armenia at Eurovision 2021 if they didn’t withdraw.
there are only claims because nobody actually knows what happened in 2021. They were supposed to participate it and we don’t know what was their plan/song For Eurovision 2021. The details were never revealed officially.

I’m sure that, were it to be Athena, who writes her English lyrics with DJ Paco producing her songs, she would submit any ideas to David etc rather than having them foisted on her, though David etc could provide Armenian lyrics in the same way that an external songwriter called Annemarie Eisfeld provided Athena’s German lines in OMG.

I think Azerbaijan will withdraw, but on the other hand what they did (once again) on JESC as well as what they’ve done at ESC has shown that the broadcaster doesn’t care of any fine. I’d like them to get banned for a year of two to learn their lesson. Besides, musically they’re not bringing any value to either contests? Always bought out songs.

This should have been done when Azerbaijan bought votes or tried to bribe juries, the broadcaster IctimaiTV still buys prepaid cards for Azeris abroad for them to vote for their own home country to the final. EBU should be more strict and show that rules are for a reason.

When Armenia hosted JESC in 2011, it was just coming out of the economic recession and JESC was on its last legs. No country wanted to host it. Armenia is far my democratic, stable and economically stable today. Also, the political tensions are in Karabagh and not in Armenia.

We all knew Armenia were eager to host Eurovision, however, the problem of safety may arise in the coming months. Let’s not forget that Armenia was at war with their neighbour less than a few months ago, and tensions regularly arise every few months.

If escalations occur between Armenia and Azerbaijan, the EBU will be forced to relocate the contest. The EBU make safety their number one concern, as we’ve seen from Rotterdam 2020. I’m delighted Yerevan may host again, but I don’t want to get my hopes up.

There are plenty of interesting questions to ask beyond politics: 1) could Armenia be able to attempt to do the double? (as they are high up in my list for nations I want to win due to Athena and Chains On You.) 2) given Athena once partook on the Greek JESC selection of 2008, and placed 7th/10, surely she should be involved here? But Chains On You would probably not be the most appropriate for this even though Athena has some songs which could be. 3) Would the event be moved to early November due to the Qatar World Cup… Read more »

I don’t think Spain or Italy would as they are big markets, but viewing figures were surprisingly low there, and viewing figures drive many participations, like the UK’s withdrawal from this level. Even with a better result this year, Azerbaijan haven’t been too interested in JESC, so they will quit anyway, hopefully quietly with a view to returning in 2023.

Excuse me, but don’t confuse Armenians with Azeris. We are not like that. In the past, Armenia has had no issue voting or giving points to Azerbaijan. The question you should be asking is what are the Azeri spokespeople going to talk about for 2 hours nonstop cuz they surely will talk over everything Armenia does or says and thus ruin the show.

1. That’s not true and 2. ARMENIA WAS NOT VOTING THAT YEAR! Do you see the difference? How are viewers going to vote for an entry when the spokespeople talk during the entire performance non-stop. And, I have watched Armenian broadcasters’ airing of the Azeri entry in 2012 and they did not talk at all over her singing, even after Azerbaijan’s postcard was titled “Karabagh”. Honestly, the amount of lying and deception among Azeris is just staggering.

Azerbaijan postcard being titled ”Karabakh” could be wrong , not defending that.But you talk like Armenia didn’t include politics to ESC only Azerbaijan did. You also included Karabakh stuff when you present your votes in 2009 and not even talking about 2016 scandal.

The purpose of uninterrupted programming is to ensure the viewers can watch the performance and vote based on that.

Sona (Azerbaijan’s JESC 2021 singer) didn’t congratulate Maléna when the rest of the singers were around her at the stage after winning. She was just waving her little Azerbaijani flag some meters away from the rest.
No Azerbaijan entry for 2022 I’m afraid, despite Yerevan 2022 could be a very good chance to build a bridge between both countries with music.

I think it’s unlikely Azerbaijan would participate but I do think it’s lovely Sona congratulated Malena. To be honest I’d rather Azerbaijan decide to sit next year out without a fuss on their own terms, rather than have a volatile “will they or won’t they” period which ends up in a singer and song being withdrawn a month before the contest.

I appreciate that the broadcasters are in difficult positions due to geopolitical tensions, but temporary withdrawals can be done in a classy and relatively diplomatic way.

Azerbaijan’s desire to ruin Armenia goes this deep: wanting the world to know it was the Armenia girl who came closer to hug the Azeri one and not the other way around … cause it goes against the Azeri will and understanding of the world that even in a hug between two minor girls … Armenia is the monster that shall roten in hell … I feel sorry for all the kids in Azerbaijan and Armenia learning at school how to hate each other as they grow up …
