Online voting and where to watch Junior Eurovision 2023

The Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2023 will be held at the Palais Nikaïa in Nice, France on Sunday November 26 (early morning of Monday November 27 in Australia).

The show will be hosted by France Télévisions presenters Olivier Minne and Laury Thilleman. Minne hosted Junior Eurovision in 2021 and presented the French votes at the Eurovision Song Contest in 1992 and 1993, as well as providing broadcast commentary from 1995 through 1997. Thilleman is a French journalist, model, presenter, actress and was crowned Miss France 2011.

A total of 16 nations will participate, including the host country and defending champion France, as well as Estonia who are making their debut in the competition this year.

Unfortunately Australia will not be participating. Previous broadcasters SBS and ABC Me confirmed earlier this year that they will not be sending a representative nor broadcast the Contest.

Online Public Voting

The good news is that everyone can participate in voting for the Junior Eurovision Song Contest. You can even vote for your own country if they are participating!

Online public voting is now open and ends up until just before the Contest begins. Voting is incredibly easy! Step 1: Go to Step 2: Preview all of the performances Step 3: Vote for your 3 favourite acts

Voting will temporarily close just before the commencement of the live final and will reopen later in the show for approximately 15 minutes after all 16 songs have been performed.

The public votes will make up 50% of each song's total score with the other 50% being decided by a professional jury. As always the song with the most points wins!
