Online voting and where to watch Junior Eurovision 2020
The 2020 Junior Eurovision Song Contest (JESC) will be held at the TVP Headquarters - studio 5 in Warsaw, Poland on Sunday 29 November (Early morning, Monday 30 November in Australia). 12 nations are taking part. Unfortunately this year Australia withdrew due to the global COVID-19 pandemic, but fans of the Contest from Australia can still vote!
Online Public Voting
Online public voting will be open from Saturday 28 November (Friday 27 November 2019 if you're in Europe) up until the beginning of the Contest.
It's super easy to vote!
Step 1: Go to vote.junioreurovision.tv
Step 2: You will get to watch all the performances (you can also see below)
Step 3: You then get the opportunity to vote for 3 of your favourite Junior Eurovision 2020 acts.
Also it is a little different from the main Eurovision Contest, if the country you are from is participating in Junior Eurovision 2020 you can support them by voting for them! In fact anyone from around the world can vote!
The online voting stops just before the show begins and then will reopen after all participants have performed. It will then remain open for only a further 15 minutes.
All the online votes will be converted into points and revealed during the show after the jury voting from each participating country have been announced.
The winner of the Junior Eurovision 2020 will be determined by 50% professional juries and 50% online public voting.
If you need a bit of help a team of 13 Aussievision jurors have ranked all the songs. Check out our Aussievision profiles, song and comments for each country below ranked from 1st to 12th.
