50 Days until Junior Eurovision 2021 - What we know so far
There are now just 50 days to go until the 2021 edition of the Junior Eurovision Song Contest, so let’s take a look at what we know so far about the upcoming Contest.
After winning the Contest last year, France will host the Junior Eurovision in their capital Paris.
It will be held at La Seine Musicale. The event will be held on Sunday December 19 (Monday December 20 in Australia).
The slogan of the Contest is ‘Imagine’. A simple and effective slogan, chosen for several reasons. First of all, it echoes Valentina's song that won the Junior Eurovision Song Contest in Warsaw last year.
The logo and stage design for this year’s Contest has also been revealed.
It has also been announced that there will be three possible scenarios for how the Contest will run this year, but which scenario it will be is yet to be announced.
