Everyone's second favourite international music competition is back! Finally, after winning the contest three times, the EBU have allowed Georgia to host the contest and it will be more than likely taking place in their capital city of Tbilisi. Presumably, the venue will be the Tbilisi Concert Hall after it hosted a highly professionally produced Georgian National Final a couple of weeks ago.

6 provisional participants already, and these are as follows:
  • Belarus
  • Cyprus
  • Georgia
  • Ireland
  • Russia
  • The Netherlands

Hurrah! Georgia is going to host - I know that their young champion Mariam Mamadashvili was eager that they not pass-up their opportunity and I did enjoy her entry. I hope they do a great job and showcase the best of what Georgia has to offer.

It's a shame that the UK doesn't bother with this competition - I know, I know, zero chance of it happening, but it is a shame. I think it says that we can't be arsed with the adult version. The BBC picking some young teenage talent with an upbeat, fun song, say a kid spotted on Britain's Got Talent or BPI/Musician's Guild/Equity supported competition who we know can deliver on-camera and then letting somebody else stage it would be a nice way to demonstrate that we would actually like to try harder at the adult Contest too at relatively limited expense. It would be a good way to try out a few ideas for styles and staging without risking them in the adult competition and use JESC as a job interview for the adult ESC the way that some of the other countries do like Netherlands and Russia.

As for the Contest itself, there were major issues with Malta's effort. I think maybe kids should be in-charge of deciding who wins - I am not convinced by the idea of adult juries on a kid's competition. I would far rather have a mix of adults and kids on the juries if they have to have adults at all. I also think that there ought to be more emphasis on interval and opening acts being keyed towards the participants and the kind of shows kids want to see, bands and singers who have tween and teenage fan-bases, young dance troupes and that kind of thing. Maybe even look at having teenage presenters who the target audience can relate to rather than people in their thirties. I know that Disney isn't a good label for it, but learning from how children's television works to increase the drama and excitement and make the design more interesting from a young point-of-view. The kid audience should be front and centre of absolutely everything that happens on the day. Also, viewing figures are not great - why watch if you can't vote at home? Given how kids are often early-adopters of new technologies now-a-days, the EBU could use JESC to test out new electronic and web-based voting systems for later use in the adult Contest. What about a Contest outreach program to the participating country's school systems and youth organisations to get more young people involved in music and performing arts projects as well as to watch and dirt cheap family tickets and family-friendly running times to encourage family's participation or cheap tickets for the host cities' schools?

JESC is a great idea - done properly and right now, they aren't doing it very well at all and if JESC doesn't work, the long-term implications for adult ESC could be equally grim.

16 countries for 2017, we've lost Israel and Bulgaria (surprisingly) but we've got Portugal! Looks like RTP are going Eurovision mad now laugh.gif

A form of televoting is returning too including online voting

Only in the participating countries and a few select others, UK viewers will only be able to watch via YouTube! I guess if you are in Northern Ireland you may pick up the Irish signal.

If this was part of Belarus' lot in Super Eurovision, this would be worthy of qualifying!

Controversy time in Junior Eurovision land!

Malta have revealed their quite ~quirky~ entry. Upon listening I thought this sounds like something Armenia would deliver, and then I read the YouTube comments... the song is VERY similar to Armenia's 2014 entry! laugh.gif
