They will be joined by Germany which is competing for the very first time.
The show, hosted for the second year in succession by TVP, will take on a different form this year due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
The 18th Junior Eurovision Song Contest will be hosted live from Warsaw in a studio with all presenters and necessary crew socially distancing. Interval acts will also perform live from Warsaw.
To protect the health of the artists and ensure the competition can still take place in a fair and safe way, all the competing songs will be performed in a studio in each participating country.
The Eurovision Song Contest was been canceled in March because of the coronavirus pandemic. The final of this year’s contest, which would have involved acts from 41 countries, was scheduled to be held in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, on May 16.
