The Eighth Edition takes place on the 20th November, and with 14 countries entering, there’s only one way to preview the songs. It’s time to call up the Juke Box Jury back into service!
The National Finals are under way, and Ukraine is first on our screens as Sweden’s Web Joker final is up next. The stage is under construction for Junior Eurovision and the ConSong 2010 winner is announced.
