JUNIOR EUROVISION 2020 – The Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2020 will be the 18th edition of the annual Junior Eurovision Song Contest, organised by Telewizja Polska (TVP) and the European Broadcasting Union (EBU).
The contest will take place on 29 November 2020, and will be held in Warsaw, Poland, following the country’s victory at the 2019 contest. This will be the first time the contest is held in the same country for two consecutive years.
Twelve countries will participate in the contest, having the smallest number of participants since the 2013 contest, with Germany participating for the first time.
THE VOTING SYSTEM
The same voting system that was introduced in the 2017 edition will be used, where the results will be determined by 50% online voting and 50% jury voting. Online voting consists of two phases.
The first phase of the online voting will last from 27 November to one minute before the show starts on 29 November.
The second phase of the online voting will take place during the live show and starts after the last performance and will be open for 15 minutes.
International viewers can vote for three countries. Viewers can also vote for their own country’s song.
The other half of the points will be determined by a national jury from every participating country.
Due to the security measures, for the first time since the 2012 contest, the spokespersons will give out the points from each of the participating countries, and not from the venue.
