Germany’s Junior Eurovision Journey
Germany was originally due to join the Junior Eurovision family in the initial edition of the Contest, but unexpectedly withdraw. This also happened in 2004, when Germany withdrew ahead of the Contest in Lillehammer. It wasn’t until 2020 in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic that Germany first participated in a Junior Eurovision event. Germany has participated on two occasions, the first being 2020 – when Susan performed “Stronger With You”, finishing 12th in a field of 12.
Germany’s most recent participation came in 2021 when Pauline represented the nation in Paris with her song “Imagine Us”. Performing first in the running order, Germany would finish in 17th place out of 19 performers. Germany received a total of 61 points, 15 from professional juries and the remaining 46 from the online vote.
