On Sunday 11 December, Junior Eurovision 2022 will get underway live from Yerevan, Armenia. There’ll be 16 countries represented by their best young singers, all hoping to lift the trophy.

We asked you to vote for your favourite entries from this year’s contest. In the end, there were 9,526 votes cast and you made sure to share your thoughts.

After counting everything, we can now reveal the results…

Armenia’s Nare tops our JESC 2022 pre-rehearsal poll

It’s clear from the poll results that our readers are in the mood to “DANCE!”. Home girl Nare rose to the top with an impressive 2,595 votes, which is 27.24% of the total.

Armenia secured their second Junior Eurovision victory last year, and it seems y’all think they could make it two victories on the trot. Nare will no doubt have the entire audience up and dancing next week.

In second place is a country that returns to Junior Eurovision after 17 years — the United Kingdom. The country saw a massive reversal of fortunes at Eurovision in May, and now they seem set to continue the success in December.

Freya Skye is bringing the polished pop track “Lose My Head”. Ever since the song first dropped, many fans have been tipping the British star for success. She picked up 1,500 votes in the poll — that’s 15.75% of all votes cast.

The Netherlands are the only country to have participated at every edition of Junior Eurovision since its creation in 2003. They’ve secured one victory in that time, but some believe they might finally make it two at this year’s 20th anniversary contest.

Luna is bringing the party spirit with her fun and joyous song “La Festa”. She earned the final spot on the podium in our poll, climbing to third place. Luna secured 984 votes (10.33%).

However, these results only tell half the story. Things could all change once we see the final performances and how each country presents their song on stage.

Online voting is set to open at the end of this week. When it does so, we’ll also open a flash poll and ask you to choose who you’ve officially voted for. This might be able to give us an insight into where the votes will be heading come Sunday afternoon.

Do you agree with the poll results? Will you be rooting for Nare at Junior Eurovision 2022, or do you have another favourite? Let us know in the comments below!

Of the pop songs, I’d love to see a total kidz bop come out on top, like the Netherlands or Spain.

My top:
1) The Netherlands
2) Armenia
3) United-Kingdom
4) Georgia
5) Kazakhstan
6) Ireland
7) Spain
8) France
9) Serbia
10) Poland
11) Italy
12) Portugal
13) North Macedonia
14) Malta
15) Ukraine
16) Albania

In other words, I have really common and basic tastes. At least I’m rarely disappointed by the final results. If the winner could be anyone among the first 3-4 I would be happy. I also would be really happy if Ireland manages to end in the top 5.

Nothing stands out! Last year’s “Qami Qami” was the best winner in the history of the contest.

Ireland is underrated, once again.

I feel as though Celtic ballads don’t get half the respect Balkan ballads do.

Melody, song and the complete orchestration, it is Georgia which stands out and this song should be the adults version of the contest. I ask why doesn't Georgia send a song like this in the ESC? As for a winner this year it will be The Netherlands, because it has that football vibe and the world cup is on at the same time. Ukraine ,UK. Armenia and France top 5.

Hey Wiwi, you wrote this list upside down. You accidentally put your political winner dead last – that’s funny. 😀

I saw the leading songs in the cart, for me it’s an easy choice – The Netherlands, with another wonderful, catchy, well staged pop song. Lovely lovely girl. I would tone down her choreo a bit so she can sing with more ease. Good luck!

Opinions of Wiwibloggs readers who are in their bubble hyping the minidivas acting like adults, it’s predictable but outside this bubble the reality will be different. Armenia first in the wiwi polls is more than a tradition now, however the real results are always different… A poll with not even 10 000 voters compared to the millions of people watching and voting the D-day means nothing but it’s still fun, predictable but fun. I repeat but this jesc voting system exacerbates too much the unhealthy patriotism, some people are like mad and I don’t like that, it brings a so… Read more »

There’s a lot of similarly sounds songs that’ll probably cancel each other out. I still Georgia has the edge on message even if I don’t love the song as much as other people seem to. It’ll likely be Georgia or a song that will stand out for being different.

If Armenia’s poll rating here were translated into online vote points it would be 253! As if! The song’s good, but there’s no way it’ll be anywhere close to that. Malena last year got 109, and that was with 19 countries. Nobody has ever got close to 200 OV points.

I just hope there will be some element of surprise on top of the table and it won’t just turn out to be a battle of some two most viewed songs on youtube (Armenia/UK, UK/Netherlands) like last year with Armenia/Poland

Spain is the worst, with the UK only slightly ahead of it. Both performers are very good. Portugal is the best.
