Last year’s winner and host of this year’s Junior Eurovision has already garnered many views. The official video has 3.8 million views, and the first rehearsal video is already close to 200,000. The singer’s official channel reaches 1.3 million and TVP’s channel reaches 1.4 million! It is expected that there will be great interest in Poland for the contest, but it is a strong song anyway. If that is supported by the jury, it is possible to see a second victory in a row for Poland. In audience voting, it will probably be in the top three if not first.


  • France

The country that returned dynamically last year after winning the runner-up looks determined to continue the good run. The video on the singer’s official channel reached 1.3 million views, while JESC’s official channel is approaching 1 million. The first rehearsal also became quite popular with 120,000 views. France has not won the competition so far.

  • Spain

The video on the singer’s channel has 700,000 views, while the official JESC channel also reaches close to 700,000. The first rehearsal seems to stand out with nearly 120,000 views already. After Spain’s 2004 win, could we see its second win this year?

  • Armenia

With an uptempo song, Armenia reached 900,000 views on the official JESC channel, while its first rehearsal also went well with 80,000 views. After winning 2010, the country has been close to winning several times.

Who will the winner be?

The above countries are almost certain to be in the top ten (possibly in the top five) of the public vote. The unexpected factor is the vote of the jury.
