The summer may be nearly over which is disappointing for many but that means that Junior Eurovision season is about to begin! There are just over 12 weeks until the final of the 2017 Junior Eurovision Song Contest! What can you expect over the coming weeks? 

So far 16 countries have confirmed participation in the 2017 Junior Eurovision Song Contest which will be held in Tbilisi, Georgia on Sunday 26th November. To date, five countries have selected their artists:

What's next?

Over the next month there will be a flurry of activity as the remaining participating countries select their entries for Junior Eurovision.
