The Netherlands’ Junior Eurovision Journey
Being one of the countries that participated in the first edition in 2003, The Netherlands is the only country to have competed in every Junior Eurovision Song Contest. They managed to win once in 2009 with Ralf Mackenbach and his entry “Click Clack”, and finished second in 2011 with Rachel and “Teenager”.
In 2021, The Netherlands selected Ayana to represent them in Paris with the song “Mata Sugu Aō Ne”, where they placed 19th with 43 points from the Jury and the Online Vote.
