Armenia’s state broadcaster AMPTV has published photos of the Junior Eurovision 2022 stage and they are SPECTACULAR!
Commenting on our Instagram post below, one user described the design as “clean and spotless,” while another said it was on the “Eurovision level.”
Producers and stage designers have done their best to carry over the energy from this year’s slogan “Spin the Magic.”
As you can see in the gallery below, the circular stage is the focal point from which light, lines and the contestant’s voices will radiate outwards to the audience.

Photo 5 shows the stage cast in darkness. But a crown or halo seems to float above it all thanks to a dramatic light fixture. This is not your grandma’s chandelier.
As it turns out, those lines are actually meant to represent strings, as this year’s executive producer David Tserunyan explained.
“The stage is a creative visual representation of the official artwork. The centre stage is the spinning top surrounded by strings of light that represent the ‘spinning’. These colourful strings are also reflected above the stage and radiate the energy from every single performance. While being minimalist, yet technologically advanced, the stage design offers multiple staging possibilities for all of the performers.”
What do you think? Are you loving it? Let us know down below!
It’s better than Eurovision 2022 stage for sure…
Let’s hope that the spinning actually works, unlike the stage in Torino
Talk about boring, this is terrible!
Let’s be clear. As an Armenian I don’t want us to win either junior or adults contests. I just want peace and Azeris and Turks leave us alone (alongside Russia- their strategic partner). We get exterminated and are almost on the edge of extinction.
Reminds me a lot of the stage in Düsseldorf 2011, I like it!
I definitely see it, but Yerevan 2022’s looks better!
Amazing design. I love those renders ??
the ?? is a heart emoji, it seems like wiwibloggs doesn’t show it on my phone
It’s beautiful, I like it very much
I think the simplicity is really good. A lot of LEDs mean that delegations can truly create their own imagery in the background, and no weird structures like the hilariously failed kinetic sun in Turin ir the weird arch in Kyiv, makes it so that they don’t get in the way either. Looking forward to how the entries will be performed here in two months 🙂
Let’s hope it actually spins, unlike “the sun”. lol
JESC stages and even winning songs have been much better than the adult ESC. Yikes.
This is very adult-like. They could totally repurpose this design for the time they win Eurovision.
This is basic af. Just like R’dam 2021. It’s LED and…LED.
Like an IT conference. Apple event.
I don’t know what to expect from stages nowadays when the last good and innovative one was in Copenhagen 2014 (!!!).
Yeah, I know that this is a kids contest, but man, these stage designers nowadays seem to have been schooled from the same book.
Gays and their telenovela drama, downvoting.
I almost forgot the toxicity of this fandom.
please don’t bring gay people into this
it’s really basic, which is fine for a kiddie contest that won’t have any elaborate stagings (altho it used to in the 00s)
Not the JESC stage being better than the ESC stage
Comparing it to Turin’s stage is like comparing a star to a matchstick. Literally any Eurovision stage was better than Turin’s
Wow, it’s simply perfect.
To think a country that’s literally at war and hosting a junior edition can pull off a better stage than Italy did is interesting, to say the least.
Thank you , ??Peace for Armenia
They learnt a thing or two from Turin, and didn’t include a ‘kinetic’ spinning top. They kept it simple, but very effective. I also really like how the stage and artwork go together.
This is probably going to be the best JESC stage together with Poland 2019.
!? Ok… and what about the stage where Malena has won? At least it got personality. But whatever it’s not a stage contest neither.
I didn’t say Paris was bad. In fact it’s probably my third favorite along with Belarus 2018 but Poland 2019 was much better.
It’s subjective, and it depends on some criteria.
Yes, the stages are like are subjectively my opinion. LOL I never said they were objectively the best. People can disagree all they want, I’m fine with that.
As I can never say something without being downvoted….I just meant that there are not better stages than another they have all something good and different, Tbilisi 2017 was the coolest stage, Minsk 2018 was good but nothing more, in 2019 it was the first time a Jesc was made on the same scale as the adult contest, it’s a choice, for sure the stage was the bigger certainly but it lacked warmth. Paris 2020 stage was iconic as we have never seen a green rooom like that which was part of the stage, the sad thing is that it… Read more »
*2019 the biggest
Thanks for sharing your opinion. I don’t think the 2017 stage was “cool”. To me it was really forgettable. If I had to rank the stages of the last 5 years (minus 2020), my ranking would be:
This is why we need for Armenia to win and then the adult contest if they are gonna pull concepts like this out.
How are Italians feeling knowing that Armenia is doing a better job then they did?
No 0ne is talking about jesc and the stage so 99.99% of the Italians don’t know or don’t care about it.
About the kinetic sun???
At least Rai tried to do something different. It didn’t work??? OK but it wasn’t dramatic. The show was enjoyable
The critics are always welcomed but pushing constantly on that kinetic sun argument seems a bit too much.
Maybe Italy does not know to make a good stage but does know how to present good songs. So we don’t have to feel nothing compared to other nations.
Good luck to Armenia
It looks like Florian designed this. And that’s not a compliment.
My thoughts too. It looks an awful lot like a Florian Wieder set design, but he’s doing something right if broadcasters keep going back to him, almost every year. I personally really like his set designs (2015 wasn’t so good, but the others were. Rotterdam’s set design was the best).
This was actually produced by an Armenian stage producer.
I approve it, then.
I loved this stage being related to the logo and the slogan
Btw who is the designer?
It’s Rudik Ter Galistyan. He is an Armenia based stage designer who works with AMPTV.
Oh thanks. By the way , any information or guesses about the presenters?
No information on that but Iveta Mukuchyan had indicated that she wanted to host the show. Dalita (Armenian representative in JESC 2011) is also very involved with AMPTV so she might be in the running too.
It’s very likely that Rosa Linn and Kalush Orchestra will perform. Malena will for sure perform.
Looks good! 🙂
