    Great news that the UK will have a representative at Junior Eurovision this year. Will Wales be entering a Welsh language song and does this mean the contest will be televised on S4C?

  2. Ewan Spence says:

    Given S4C’s commitment to the welsh language I would be surprised if the JESC song was not in Welsh. And I woudl assume S4C are showing it as well.
