What we know about the 2022 Junior Eurovision Song Contest
Shortly after winning the 2021 Junior Eurovision Song Contest, the EBU and ARMTV have revealed that Armenia will be hosting the 2022 Junior Eurovision Song Contest.
Since then, it was revealed in April 2022, that “Yerevan” will be hosting the 20th edition of the competition, which will take place on December 11, 2022, at the Karen Demirchyan Complex, which can accommodate up to 8,000 spectators. This will be the second time the venue will host the competition, with the first being in 2011.
Spain’s Junior Eurovision Journey
In 2003, Spain was one of the countries to participate in the inaugural edition of the competition with Sergio and the song “Desde el cielo”, and placed 2nd with 125 points. The year after, Spain managed to win the competition with María Isabel and the song “Antes muerta que sencilla”. The nation participated for two more years and took a 12-year break, where it returned in 2019, with Melani Garcia and her entry “Marte” which placed 3rd.
Spain’s recent attempt in the competition saw them internally select Levi Díaz and the song “Reír ”, which saw them finish 15th. They managed to score 77 points from the jury and the online vote.
