It might be summer, but the news continues to keep on rolling for the Junior Eurovision Song Contest. Germany, who will be participating in the Junior Eurovision Song Contest, for the second year in a row, has revealed the three contenders competing to represent Germany at this year’s competition in Paris. The contenders were condensed to three after an online vote took place. Germany’s representative for the 2021 Junior Eurovision Song Contest will be selected on September 10, where the viewers will decide their representative.
Five become Three, but who will represent Germany in Paris?
Before we even got to this position, a whole selection has been taking place for some time. Over 100 entries were received by KiKa on June 25. After this, a jury of seven members (which consists of representatives of NDR, KiKA, and music industry experts) chose the top five, where fans from Germany, Austria, and Switzerland chose the remaining three participants, which consists of Marta, Pauline, and Emilie.
At the time of writing, the songs which the contenders will be singing is yet to be revealed, with KiKA project manager Marko Thielemann describing the songs as “rather cheerful – from pop anthems to good-mood songs”, and that the songs have been written specifically for the Junior Eurovision Song Contest.
The final of Junior ESC – Wer fährt nach Paris? will take place on September 10 (19:30CET) at the Central Club Music and Event Hall in Erfurt, and will be broadcasted live on KiKA.
