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.”

Let’s hope that the spinning actually works, unlike the stage in Torino

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.

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 🙂

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.

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)

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.

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.

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 »

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:

  1. 2019
  2. 2021/2018
  3. 2021/2018
  4. 2017
  5. 2016

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 truly looks good. Minimalistic yet spectacular. I’m sure that the producers can make a great show with that many lights and that big LED.
Well done!

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).

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.

Yes for Malena, Rosa Linn and Kalush Orchestra <3

Iveta M seems to be a one poney show that purposefully provoked a “p-oo-li-tical scandal” and *tainted* the experience of artists and delegations and the “reputation* of the contest (2016) and then made another “trick” in 2020 re: Germany’s selection plus the same old story. This time it’s a kids’ show. May she stay out of JESC.
