Poland: Positive to host Junior Eurovision 2020 again if it wins

The general manager of Polish Public Television, TVP, has revealed that he is also positive about organizing Junior Eurovision next year, as long as the forecasts are verified and won in a few days in Glivice.

The Eurovision Children’s Contest will be held on November 24 in Gliwice, Poland. 19 countries will claim the victory, with the hosting country to be considered as the favorite by many.

Viki Gabor‘s “Superhero” has surpassed more than 2 million views in less than a month,  enjoying herself a lot of popularity in her own country, a very important element of online voting, as in  Junior Eurovision we can also vote in favour of our  own country.

Since 2017, EBU has changed the way the hosting country of Junior Eurovision is being selected and has removed the winner’s right to have the first say on hosting or not the competition, as it was until then. A system of nominations was introduced, through which the EBU chose the nomination it seemed most appropriate. That’s how Minsk was chosen in 2018 and Glivice this year. By the way, this year’s hosting country also happened to be the winner of the previous contest.

So it remains to be seen if EBU will give the next event in Poland, if “Superhero” wins Junior Eurovision 2019 in a few days.
