- Winning song: “Oh maman!” – Lissandro – 🇫🇷 France (2ª)
The Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2022 was the 20th edition of the annual Junior Eurovision Song Contest. The contest took place in Yerevan, Armenia on 11 December 2022, following the country’s victory at the 2021 contest with the song “Qami Qami” by Maléna.[Organised by the European Broadcasting Union (EBU) and host broadcaster Public Television Company of Armenia (AMPTV), the contest was held at the Karen Demirchyan Sports and Concerts Complex. This was the second time that Armenia hosted the Junior Eurovision Song Contest, the first being in 2011.
Sixteen countries participated in the contest. The United Kingdom returned after a sixteen-year absence, while Azerbaijan, Bulgaria, Germany and Russia did not take part, with the latter’s broadcasters having been indefinitely suspended from the EBU due to the 2022 Russian invasion of Ukraine.
France’s Lissandro was the winner of the contest with the song “Oh maman!”. This was France’s second victory in the contest, having last won in 2020. Host country Armenia, Georgia, Ireland and the United Kingdom completed the top five, with this being the highest placement for Ireland to date. Portugal also achieved their highest placement, finishing eighth. Meanwhile, Kazakhstan achieved their lowest placing to date.
1.Location. The contest took place at the Karen Demirchyan Sports and Concerts Complex in Yerevan, the capital and largest city of Armenia. The venue previously hosted the 2011 contest. It was also the third consecutive time the contest is held in a capital city.
1.1.Bidding phase and host city selection. Armenia’s hosting had been confirmed by the EBU on 21 December 2021, following their win at the 2021 contest two days before. Originally, unlike in the Eurovision Song Contest, the winning country did not receive the automatic rights to host the next contest. However, since 2019, each contest has been hosted by the previous year’s winning country. The venue was revealed on 17 February 2022 during a cabinet meeting of the Armenian government, where Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan made the announcement. Pashinyan also mentioned that the government had allocated funds to the venue to prepare for the event. It was already reported earlier in that week that Yerevan would be the host city.
2.0. Presenters. Iveta Mukuchyan, Garik Papoyan and Karina Ignatyan were the presenters of the show. Ignatyan was the Armenian entrant in the Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2019, and Mukuchyan was the Armenian entrant in the Eurovision Song Contest 2016. The hosts were revealed on 18 November. Robin the Robot, a robot with artificial emotions developed by Armenian IT company Expper Technologies, was revealed as the guest presenter on 1 December. Robin was the first non-human host in Eurovision history
2.1.Visual design. The reveal of the contest’s theme art had been delayed due to the September clashes between Armenia and Azerbaijan. In a press release, AMPTV stated that “preparations for the contest are ongoing, and according to the schedule, it was no longer possible to change the deadlines”, while expressing hope that the contest will be held in peaceful conditions. The theme art and slogan for the contest, “Spin the Magic” (Պտտի՛ր հրաշքը), was later revealed on 26 September 2022. The artwork features an Armenian-styled spinning top as the main motif.
2.2.Opening and interval acts. The opening of the show featured the traditional flag parade, with all participants performing the common song “Spin the Magic”. During the interval, Maléna performed her new single “Can’t Feel Anything”, followed by Rosa Linn performing “Snap”, with which she represented Armenia in the Eurovision Song Contest 2022. Closing the interval, ten previous Junior Eurovision winners performed their winning songs, for the occasion of the 20th edition of the event, alongside Maléna: Bzikebi (2008), Ralf Mackenbach (2009), Vladimir Arzumanyan (2010), Candy (2011), Gaia Cauchi (2013), Vincenzo Cantiello (2014), Destiny Chukunyere (2015), Mariam Mamadashvili (2016), Viki Gabor (2019), and Valentina (2020). The other eight winning songs were performed by the Tavush Diocese Children’s Choir.
3.Participating countries.On 26 September 2022, the EBU announced that 16 countries would participate in the contest. After a 16-year hiatus, the United Kingdom returned to the contest, with the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) replacing ITV, who previously organised the country’s participation in the contest between 2003 and 2005. Azerbaijan, Bulgaria, Germany and Russia did not return after having participated in 2021, with the latter’s broadcasters having been indefinitely suspended from the EBU. Prior to the contest, the songs from each of the participating countries were featured on a compilation album titled Junior Eurovision Song Contest: Yerevan 2022, put together by the EBU and released on 30 November 2022 by Universal Music.
As the event began, the United Kingdom’s Freya Skye was unable to sing live for the rehearsal that was filmed before the voting opened due to medical reasons, and playback was used. The issue continued into the jury show, where footage from the first rehearsal was used as a replacement. During the jury show, camera and in-ear device issues were reported for Serbia’s Katarina Savić, who was allowed to perform again after the scheduled final performance of Ukraine’s Zlata Dziunka. On the day of the contest, it was announced that Savić would not be performing live due to medical issues, and that footage from her jury show performance would be used instead.
France’s Lissandro was the winner of the contest with the song “Oh maman!“. This was France’s second victory in the contest, having last won in 2020.

3.Other countries. For a country to be eligible for potential participation in the Junior Eurovision Song Contest, it needs to be an active member of the EBU.
3.1.Active EBU members.
- 🇦🇿 Azerbaijan – In January 2022, Eldar Rasulov, a member of Azerbaijani delegation, stated that the country must participate regardless where the contest is held in response to rumours that they would withdraw due to the upcoming contest being held in Armenia. However, the country ultimately did not appear on the final list of participants.
- 🇪🇪 Estonia – In May 2022, Estonian broadcaster ERR announced that Estonia would not debut in the 2022 contest due to financial limitations, but would not close the door to future participation.
- 🇩🇪 Germany – In August 2022, German broadcaster NDR confirmed that they will not be participating in 2022 due to a “creative break” and partial travel warnings for Armenia issued by the Federal Foreign Office. NDR and KiKa would, however, still broadcast the contest, with a view of returning in 2023.
- 🇮🇱 Israel – In June 2022, Israeli broadcaster KAN confirmed that they would not be participating in 2022 due to focusing their efforts on the Eurovision Song Contest. Israel last participated in 2018.
- 🇲🇪 Montenegro – In May 2022, Montenegrin broadcaster RTCG announced that Montenegro would not return to the contest in 2022, due to lack of funds and focus on the Eurovision Song Contest. Montenegro last participated in 2015.
- 🇸🇮 Slovenia – In May 2022, Slovenian broadcaster RTVSLO initially stated that they were considering a return to the contest. However, the country did not end up participating. Slovenia last participated in 2015.
- Belarus – Belarusian broadcaster BTRC was expelled from the EBU on 1 July 2021, therefore losing the rights to broadcast and participate in the contest unless another Belarusian broadcaster joins the EBU. In August 2021, it was confirmed that the suspension would last for three years, thus Belarus will not be able to compete until 2024 unless the EBU decides to reduce their punishment.
- 🇷🇺 Russia – Despite having initially confirmed their participation on 13 February 2022, all EBU members from Russia announced their withdrawal from the union on 26 February, in response to their exclusion from the Eurovision Song Contest 2022 due to the Russian invasion of Ukraine. On 26 May, the EBU made effective the suspension of its Russian members, causing Russia to indefinitely lose broadcasting and participation rights for future Eurovision events, including Junior Eurovision. The Russian selection process for the 2022 contest was therefore cancelled, with an alternative competition similar in format to Junior Eurovision, called Nashe pokoleniye (English: Our Generation), to be held in spring 2023

In her free time, Chanel designs jewellery, has a passion for reading books, knitting, and enjoys solving Rubik’s Cubes.
