There are many good songs and it’s great, but Armenia is just perfect, and most probably it will win.

Forgot to list along my comment that I am a little concerned over the live performance the Georgian singer will deliver as there’s a fair amount of autotune in the song (especially in the first chorus you can hear it well, as the instrumentals haven’t built up and for some reason I think it gets more obvious when she sings in English) but I think they will deliver as always.

I can see why people from other countries like it, but as a Dutch person myself I hear this kind of music on the Dutch kids pop music scene all the time so it’s pretty uninteresting to me

Agree. I personally don’t really like that EDM/club-ish sound and it gets a little repetitive to me. I can see why people like it though.

I actually like North Macedonia for a pure child-friendly song. It’s uplifting and incredibly catchy. Georgia has raised the bar this year…..their song is easily good enough to be entered into the adult version. Armenia is also very good, even though many may think that it’s a little grown-up for a junior contest…..I disagree !!

Definitely agree on North Macedonia here, it is child-friendly while still staying true to the country and as far as I can estimate it probably won’t get older fans to cringe either 🙂 Very unique (Georgia too)

UK is hugely overrated. When I heard a snippet I thought it was good, but on hearing the whole song, I thought it was very ordinary and typical of the soul-less up-tempo sons that litter the UK charts at the moment. Top 10 for sure but no way the winner.

Ireland just gets better with each listen. The performer has an amazing voice and presence. If the staging is magical along the lines of the video it could be a winner.

I usually don’t watch or get involved with JESC, but I have listened to all 16 songs this year. All I can say, I am happy that there are so many good songs, which I would not mind to listen a few times more! My TOP-5 would be (though the battle between the first and second places is very tight):

  1. Kazakhstan (David Charlin – “Jer-Ana”)
  2. United Kingdom (Freya Skye – “Lose My Head”)
  3. Spain (Carlos Higes – “Señorita”)
  4. Ireland (Sophie Lennon – “Solas”)
  5. France (Lissandro – “Oh Maman!”)

I think there are a lot of good entries, will be interesting to see how they come alive on stage. My personal favourite is Freya Skye.

I must admit I haven’t listened to JESC before and I am impressed with the standard of performance by all the entrants but at the moment the Polish song is stuck in my head so I will vote for that one.

I can’t get over how stunning Georgia’s entry is. It’s too good for JESC and I don’t think it’ll be appreciated there as much as it would be in Liverpool.

Ireland’s song is amazing too. I think TG4 should do joint collaborations with RTE for Eurovision. TG4 constantly bring Celtic ballads that would dominate normal Eurovision.

The UK & Armenia are also deserving winners, but not as much as Ireland & Georgia.

What’s so stunning about it? She’s sining a tragic song in a pelican costume. It’s pretentious and too mature for JE. Hilarious too.

I think Kazakhstan and Georgia will be the top 2 with the juries, probably with a landslide.

Armenia might get massive results in online voting since the contest is extremally popular in Armenia after Malena’s victory. I think the UK will also get a lot of online votes.

The winner will probably be the one getting a landslide victory in either jury votes or in online voting. Let’s see. It will be an exciting voting sequence!

I think Kazakhstan and Georgia are the two clear quality songs and deserve to be in their own tier at the top. However, I think seven songs are in with a realistic chance of winning and I actually really like ALL the songs in my current top ten.

Should be a great year!

Those two for sure. Armenia, UK, Netherlands and Spain will be in with a shout, too.
I also don’t think Ireland can be completely counted out either.

One of those songs will have to be a terrific live performance to beat La Festa though. That is going to get a load of points.

Ireland is the best this year for me. Enchanting and beautiful. However, I said this about Ireland in 2019 that had a similar sounding ballad. Very good studio version, but her live performance was very bad and I instantly knew it wasn’t going to win.

People forget that in the jury of this contest there are 2 KIDS per country each years and what is the kind of songs that is jury winner 3 years in a row, kid friendly songs, so before coming to say that the children don’t listen and don’t like this kind of song, only to justify your own mature taste, check the facts.

Armenia is the only country that is already organizing mass voting for itself. In addition, the vote will skip the favorites, which you can be sure of! So maybe look around what’s going on – you’re looking at the Poles when the Armenians took over the baton!

I don’t like to be argumentative online, but believe me I didn’t see any JESC related news till now, so what I wrote was purely a first reaction and based on my subjective taste in music; so of course i will go for an upbeat song over a sleepy balled at any day. As for Armenia or Poland mass voting that the last thing I care about, knowingly how hard I go for a supporting a song I won’t be “disappointed” when it flops. I have been watching the contest since 2016 and it was just for fun and nothing… Read more »

Difficult question. I don’t have a clear favorite and I don’t think there is a clear winner compared to last year when Malena and Sara James were clearly the only two strong contenders for the win. This year I would say that at least 5 countries could make it to the top. -United-Kingdom come back with a strong song but it doesn’t fit the junior spirit. This being said, Malena’s song didn’t fit the junior spirit either. I think UK result this year will depends on how they manage to make the performance kid/teenage friendly (hope we won’t have a… Read more »

Would be great seeing Netherlands as winner. Great song, kid-friendly and great live performance. Besides that, NL is the only country to have participated in all 20 editions. Luna deserves it.

I also really love Spain and Kazakhstan. They have been sending a-ma-zing songs these last years, could they take the win?

UK is a great song and you see Freya is a great live performer. But it misses something for me.

Overall a really strong year!

my faves in no particular order:
-Armenia (strong K-Pop vibes; replace the Armenian lyrics with their Korean equivalent, and it could become another Blackpink/Itzy hit single)
-Georgia (powerful instrumentation, powerful voice and powerful message)
-Ireland (the beauty of Celtic/Gaelic ballad; I hope Ireland will also bring something similar to the adult contest)
-Netherlands (fun kid-friendly bop)
-United Kingdom (solid pop song that could become another hit single of Ava Max or Dua Lipa)
