Junior Eurovision 2020: Poland to host the contest for a second successive year
Following the latest ongoing local media reports, the Polish national broadcaster revealed today that Poland will be hosting this year’s Junior Eurovision Song Contest for a second year in a row.
Local media had the previous weeks reported the fact that Poland is likely to host the Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2020 for a second consecutive year. Today the Chairman of TVP, Jacek Kurski, confirmed those reports by announcing that Poland will host the competition this year again.
J. Kurski stated:
Polish Television is honoured to once again embark on this wonderful adventure and to organize this global event. The Junior Eurovision Song Contest is also important because it gives young performers a platform to show their great talent to audiences all over Europe. I am proud that TVP can contribute to their success.
EBU’s Executive Supervisor of JESC , Jon Ola Sand, said:
We are delighted that TVP will be making history once again by hosting the Junior Eurovision Song Contest in 2020. Last year’s event in Gliwice set a new benchmark for the competition. The stunning production brought the Contest to a new level and we are so happy to be working with the talented team at TVP again this year.
However the specific date and place that the 2020 edition will take place haven’t yet been confirmed. Krakow seems to be the favorite city to host the next edition of the competition.
Last year the competition was host in Gliwice-Silesia with 19 nations taking part. Poland won the contest for a second year in a row with Viki Gabor’s entry “Superhero”.
