FRANCE – Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2021, a success? Seems not. The preliminary TV rating report shows a big decrease with only (at the moment) exception, that of the host country.
On the other hand, EBU and FRANCE TV should be proud that JESC hit social media, and especially Twitter. #JESC2021 was in the top five in most countries, but more impressive was that the hashtag was #9 in the world and also appeared at the top of the UK and Sweden.
