Germany returns to the Junior Eurovision Song Contest by confirming its entry for this year’s Junior Eurovision 2023 contest.
Germany returns to Junior Eurovision after a year’s absence. Until now, its return was simply expected as KiKa, the broadcaster responsible for the Junior Eurovision project, had stated that they planned to participate in Junior Eurovision 2023. With today’s announcement, the country’s presence was officially confirmed.
Last year the country had decided not to participate in the competition held in Yerevan, Armenia, stating that they would take a creative break. One of the reasons for the absence were the travel warnings of the German Ministry of Foreign Affairs to Armenia due to the war tension with neighbouring Azerbaijan, regarding the status of the breakaway region of the Republic of Artsakh.
Germany has participated twice so far, in 2020 with Susan and “Stronger With You” finishing in last place with 66 points, and in 2021 with Pauline and “Imagine Us” where they placed 17th with 61 points .
As announced today, the upcoming Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2023 is going to take place on November 26th in Nice, France.
