Greece does not return to this year’s Junior Eurovision Song Contest, which will be held in Yerevan, Armenia, on December 11, 2022.
ERT continues its abstention from the Junior Eurovision Song Contest, with its last participation in the distant 2008. The most probable most likely of the national elections in the fall and the change of the mid-summer CEO are the two main factors that led ERT in this decision. In 2023 ERT will reconsider its decision.
So far, ten countries have confirmed their participation in the upcoming Eurovision children’s song contest, which this year celebrates its 20th anniversary:
- Northern Macedonia
Greece at Junior Eurovision
Greece participated in the maiden contest of Junior Eurovision 2003. Five more entries followed until 2008. For the first three years, ERT did well, always managing to be in the top ten of the final standings. From 2006 onwards, however, the follow-up was not proportionate. In fact, in 2007 our country took the last place, something that has never happened in any other EBU competition. All Greek participations emerged through an open selection and a national final. Our best participation was Now Is Our Series, with Alexandros Chountas and Kalli Georgelli, who in 2005 took sixth place!
