PanARMENIAN.Net – Armenia will be participating in the 19th Junior Eurovision Song Contest on December 19, according to information shared by the European Broadcasting Union (EBU) and France Télévisions.
The event will take place in Paris at La Seine Musicale – a spectacular concert hall located on Île Seguin in the River Seine – with 19 countries set to participate in total.
France Télévisions will stage the Contest following their first win in Poland last November with “J’imagine” by Valentina. 11 of the broadcasters who took part in Warsaw will return in 2021 together with 8 who last took part pre-pandemic.
Armenia’s public broadcaster AMPTV withdrew from previous edition of the contest, as well the Eurovision Song Contest (ESC) in May – in the aftermath of a devastating war unleashed by Azerbaijan against the people of Artsakh (Nagorno-Karabakh).
