Junior Eurovision 2023: The results of the Press and the Audience Poll | France is the winner!

In less than 24 hours from now will know the winner of the 21st Junior Eurovision Song Contest. Following the conclusion of the technical rehearsals and the beginning of the Online Voting’s first phase, the first Dress Rehearsal as well as the Jury Final took place today. During the Jury Final, the 50% of tommorow’s results was decided with the remaining 50% to be decided by the online vote.

Press poll

Since the first and second technical rehearsals were not open to press, today it was the first time that the accredited journalists were able to watch the full performances of the sixteen participating countries. Hence, as it is used in Eurovision, a press poll was held within the accredited journalists and was organized by ESC Insight, ESC Discord, That Eurovision Site and L’Eurovision Au Quotidien.

56 accredited members of the press voted, with each one of them awarding 1 point to their top three entries.

The results of the Junior Eurovision’s 2023 press poll were the following

At the top of the poll stands France with 27 points, followed by The Netherlands with the margin of just a point. France and The Netherlands were by far the favorites of the press with United Kingdom finishing third with a six-point margin.

Audience Poll

Along with the usual press poll, an audience poll was also held this year. The results of this poll were decided by the audience attending the Jury Final. It was requested of the audience to select a winner.

The results of the Junior Eurovision’s 2023 audience poll were the following

At the audience poll, France wins by landslide and is followed by Armenia and Spain.

As a result, we can see that France with Zoé Clauzure and “Coeur” easily topped both of the polls conducted today and is a clear favorite for winning the 2023 Junior Eurovision Song Contest. In case the aforementioned scenario comes true and France wins on home soil, it will be the second time in Junior Eurovision history that a country wins in two consecutive editions, with the first being Poland(2018-2019).


The 21st Junior Eurovision Song Contest will be held tomorrow afternoon at 16:00 CET live from Palais Nikaïa in Nice, France. Meanwhile, the online voting is still open and you can cast your votes until 15:59 CET. The show will be also broadcasted live via the official Junior Eurovision YouTube channel
