On 26 September, the national selection will be broadcast live on Khabar TV.
Kazakhstan in the Junior Eurovision Song Contest
The first time the country participated in the Junior Eurovision Song Contest was in 2018, when Daneliya Tuleshova represented the country. She sang Өзіңе сен (Òzińe Sen) and placed 6th. One year later, Yerzhan Maxim represented Kazakhstan in Gliwice-Silesia with the song Armanyńnan Qalma and finished in 2nd place.
