Europe united on Sunday for Junior Eurovision 2023. Young singers from 16 countries took to the stage and wowed the audience, but at the end of the show it was France’s Zoé Clauzure who emerged as the winner with her song “Cœur“.

Zoé Clauzure took the trophy from her predecessor Lissandro, who won the competition in 2022 with “Oh Maman!”. This gives France back-to-back wins in the competition, and their third victory in four years.

With three wins under their belt, France is now the joint most successful country in Junior Eurovision history, alongside Georgia.

The show was hosted by Laury Thilleman and Olivier Minne from Palais Nikaïa in Nice.

I think It would be nice that they gave each and every country 20 points just for taking part that way there would not be any country/kid with 0 points after a few countries have voted.

The overall event monies situation from before and after the show would make a fascinating read.

Three countries won within the space of a few short years of which two back-to-back victories. And that despite the much more equal field of much less participants as compared to the big event.

I don’t know if people are ready for that conversation but: is the voting system really fair? I agree France has had fantastic entries these past years. But 3 wins in four years + Poland’s back-to-back win not so long ago… It’s a lot. We also see that France and Spain are almost every year in the televoting top3. Are the same countries destined to always win at JESC? Or is it just a coincidence?

I am not saying France, Spain and Poland are not sending quality entries every year but it’s obvious voting goes in favour of a few but on the other hand, if they go back to standard voting, I am not sure if they would be able to keep the audience and voting figures…

Clearly not a fair voting system. It isn’t hard to track down IPs and just make the voting Eurovision style: 5 votes to freely give out to anyone you wish except for your own country (very few people will bother with VPNs anyway), 1-12 set of points to give out, and one set of “rest of the world” votes for non-participants. It would be much fairer. Right now the jury has too much power.

Agree with overs below they really over did the French, at the end when France had won they dropped English all together. We didn’t have 55% Armenian last year, main esc won’t be 55% Swedish next year.

France had a good song but Netherlands, UK, Spain, Armenia and Ukraine were all better in my opinion.

Honest opinion is that, this year, the talent level of the performers themselves was right up there. Just off the top of my head, Yulan, Viola or even Melissa (from Italy) are ready to compete at an adult Eurovision level right now. However, this was probably one of the weakest years recently in terms of the songwriting in the entries. When taking these two things together, I don’t think there was a huge gap between the best entry and the weakest, so the results could’ve been anything. Really enjoyed the show, I think, song-wise, it’s not a winner that’s going… Read more »

I don’t get how Spain got so many televoters. It was an okayish entry, nothing catchy or memorable. But I am happy for them because I love Spain and I want to see them win and host JESC soon! I thought the UK would do better in public vote, their staging was clearly the best. Albania was overrated by juries, Ireland and Germany were underrated by juries but thanks to the public, Germany entered the Top 10 (4th in televoting!) that was one of the best things of the show. I also expected more points for the Netherlands, it was… Read more »

I voted for it, as a non-Spanish viewer. It was one of the more “Junior” songs (happy vibes and stuff), but I mean this in the best way possible. It got stuck in my head after the first listen and the staging and performance seemed very professional to me.

I liked Ukraine for the very same reasons, but I can get that the melody of the chorus might get a little annoying to some people.

If we ever manage to organize the adult edition, I think Stéphane Bern will fall ill if he is not the host. He has been doing commentary for France since 2015 (JESC commentary too), he has eaten all the editions, all the songs, all our defeats, he has hosted twice “C’est vous qui décidez!”, every year he is hoping , the guy if you deprive him of Eurovision in France he is KO.

Even if he is an host in France (and also an excellent actor, whom I saw in the theater in the role of Sherlock Holmes), Olivier is Belgian and lives half the year in the United States. All this means that his English is solid, and with his caring personality, he is perfect for hosting a show with children.

When you’re organizing a Eurovision event in France, you know for sure that most of the audience is going to be French people who don’t speak English, so you need someone to take them through the whole show, and this person certainly doesn;t have to speak English if there are two other hosts doing that already

I totally agree that an eight-year-old doesn’t need to be fluent in English, but I’m pretty sure that most children understand English better than French. speaking French is only to consider the French people which is arrogant and selfish in my eyes. English is the primary language that most people communicate when they talk to people from other countries, and these are facts. Therefore the show should not be spoken in 50/50

It’s not a legacy of British imperialism. It’s a very recent change. The big growth of English language education in primary schools didn’t really start until the late 20th century in response to the globalization of media and business, largely from the U.S. 40 years ago, few people in France spoke English.

I feel like The Netherlands deserved a better result. Unfortunately Sep was sick and had a sore throat and those pre-recorded vocals (that wasn’t even Sep?) mixed with Jasmijn’s perfect live vocals sounded weird and didn’t really work well. Sad that this got in the way of them getting a better result, their performance and staging was winner worthy! 7th place felt unfair. Sad that Spain didn’t catch the trophy but Zoë deserved it too! France had the full package.

North Macedonia 12th… some things never change. Pretty predictable results, all the ballads ate themselves up, wish Spain won, so it could finally host after so many great results, but France’s song was worth the victory.

Keeping of suspense for final score was brutal really, has it ever lasted that long?

Either they had some technical issues when France’s score was supposed to be announced, or they wanted to stall it long enough so the French fans would be happier when they won
They took WAY too much time there, even ESC doesn’t do that

I think they went way too fast with the previous scores and it turned out they had too much time left to fill.

Thank God this sh!t is over and we can focus on the real Eurovision now. Can’t wait for the EBU to axe this cr4p. What’s even more cringy is full grown adults reveling in this junior sh!t meant for kids.

I am somewhat shocked wiwibloggs allows such comments about a children programme. They should be a little more on point when filtering the comments.

wiwibloggs is the X of Eurovision. Even far-right comments are allowed, there are no guidelines and no rules…wiwibloggs should shut down the comments

Congratulations to France, a well deserved victory! My favorite French JESC winner by far
I’m very happy Poland did this well, expected Netherlands and Germany to do better, Albania and Malta in top-10 is a nice surprise
Not a single ballad made it to top-5, goes to show how we need to reduce the amount of ballads in JESC, it’s just unacceptable to have this many slow songs in a field of 16 contestants
It’s also about children, I wouldn’t expect them to vote for ballads too much

So now again y’all will stop with your running order thing in jesc, cause Spain is runner up performing at the first place, so everything is possible, again a proof. Never somebody performing first got a top 3 result, Spain did it, brillantly, they broke this “malediction”. Sandra should be so proud! The UK top 5 again and even 4th this time! Germany, Malta, and Albania top 10 top and Albania even top 5 jury! Best result for Germany ever! Ukraine top 3 public! Germany 4th public! A bit surprised for The Netherlands I really thought it was the one… Read more »

There were 7 up tempo songs ranging from mid to really fast up tempo, and 9 ballads. Online votes ranked ballads bottom 9 (frome 8th to 16th). Kids Are really not into ballads, and they are the biggest voting group for this contest, so those who want to do well with online votes, don’t send ballads lol

Agree but it depends also.
Germany was a ballad and did much better with Online than juries. A ballad and performer need some personality and convey some feeling tho

Bravo France! Very well deserved and a brilliant singer. I noticed the Malta swap vote – 12 points go to Armenia, and 12 points from Armenia to Malta! I was not expecting Netherlands to fall so far down. All in all happy with the result

honestly Junior Eurovision has been absolutely amazing since like 2014. Eurovision was always able to keep up, but since 2020 Junior Eurovision has become SO MUCH better than the adult version which is nowadays filled with people who cannot appreciate good music like ballads, but only appreciate weird songs (especially now with this new producer who removed juries from semis). Again, Junior Eurovision was sublime! Such a great spectacle, everything from the intros, performances, interval acts, were fantastic. Glad to see Amir again, and the We Are The World performance was astonishing! As for the performing acts, I really liked… Read more »

No boos when the winner was announced or about to perform? No talks about rigging?
Imagine if grown up adults had the same mentality when it came to ESC….
Worthy winner though! Obvius from the start she would win. It had the package

A nice moment, but kinda strange to have a Michael Jackson song. The man who was a shining example of how childhood stardom can mess up a life in very serious ways.

I do think that something needs to be said about the voting system though. Mostly how countries that score well with the online vote not making much of a difference to their ultimate result, Germany for example coming 4th in the online vote and coming 9th overall because coming 4th in the online vote doesn’t give as much points as if they were to finish 4th in the jury vote. We saw the same thing last year with Freya Skye winning the online vote but not even coming close to winning the whole contest because of a Jury result that… Read more »

The online vote takes place before the contest even starts, and is based on about 30 seconds of rehearsal. Kinda stupid anyway.

I feel like there are similarities to Melodifestivalen in terms of online voting not making the impact versus juries.
