Performances. Due to the Corona Pandemic a new way had to be found to stage Junior Eurovision 2020. This will be the first time that the contest will be held remotely, with each artist performing from a television studio in their country of origin. To give smoothness and confidence to the competition, the 13 participating broadcasters committed themselves to giving equal conditions to each of the participants, using a similar scenario and the same technical resources. The opening protocol, interval acts and voting will be broadcast live from Warsaw.
Hosts. Ida Nowakowska-Herndon, Rafał Brzozowski and Małgorzata Tomaszewska will present the 18th edition of the Contest on 29 November 2020.
During the live show on Wednesday evening (2000 - 2300 hours CET) we enjoyed a very active chatroom resulting that many requests were also played on the show this week.
