The preparations in Nice for the 21st Junior Eurovision Song Contest are on fire and it is now a wrap for the fourth day of this year’s technical rehearsals. Following their first rehearsals on Tuesday, the representatives from nine out of the sixteen participating countries, took the stage of Palais Nikaia today for their second rehearsals.
The second rehearsals gave the opportunity to the delegations to fix any mistakes spotted on the first rehearsals as well as to help the young artists feel more safe and familiar with the big stage. Meanwhile clips from this rehearsals’ stage will be used in the recap video for the first phase of the Online Voting, which is conducted before the show.
The first and second rehearsals were not open to journalists and we could only take a glimpse of what the young artists have prepared via photos. EBU has just uploaded through the official Junior Eurovision channel in YouTube a recap of today’s rehearsals. Specifically, we will have the chance to watch exclusive TV footage of today’s rehearsals.
The countries that had their second rehearsals today were the following:

Tomorrow, the seven remaining countries will have their second rehearsals. Following the conclusion of tomorrow’s rehearsals, the first phase of the Online Voting, which will determine 50% of Sunday’s results, will begin. The voting will remain open throughout Saturday, will then close just before the show and will reopen shortly after the final performance of the show for approximately fifteen minutes.
The 21st Junior Eurovision Song Contest will take place on November 26 in Nice, France, following Lissandro’s win last year in Yerevan with “Oh maman!”. It will be the second time in just three years that France will host the big event, with the first being in 2021.
