‘We are delighted to return to France for the 21st Junior Eurovision Song Contest just 2 years after a spectacular hosting in Paris. The team at France Télévisions have the experience, vision, and passion to create something truly magical in Nice this November and we look forward to working with them in the coming months on another exciting show.’

Delphine Ernotte-Cunci, President of France Télévisions and President of the EBU added:

‘France Télévisions is proud to welcome young artists from all over Europe and beyond to celebrate the unifying power of music. I am very happy that this second edition of Junior Eurovision organized by France will be held in Nice, a city of history and culture emblematic of our country. Once again, this year, the Junior Eurovision Song Contest will delight young and old alike, who will follow this festive and popular event at the Palais Nikaïa and on the EBU’s public media channels.’

It is France’s second win in three years! Previously it was in 2021 after Valentina’s victory with the song “J’imagine”and it took place on 19 December at La Seine Musicale in Paris.

And now following Lissandro’s victory at Junior Eurovision 2022 in Yerevan with the song “Oh Maman!”, France Télévisions will organize the Contest at the Palais Nikaïa in Nice.
