The EBU and its member France Télévisions are proud to announce that Paris, the City of Light, will be the official host city for this year’s Junior Eurovision Song Contest (JESC).

After Valentina’s victory as the representative of France at JESC 2020 in Poland – France’s first victory in the competition – France Télévisions will organize the competition at the Seine Musicale on Ile Seguin in western Paris.

The 19th edition of the competition for talented 9- up to 14-year-olds will take place on Sunday, December 19th.

The 2020 edition reached 32 million viewers and was hosted in Warsaw by the Polish broadcaster TVP.

The slogan of the 19th JESC in Paris is “Imagine “, chosen for his echoes of Valentina’s winning song – J’imagine – in 2020 and also for the fact that the imagination is infinite, especially for children and something that is needed now more than ever.

Martin Österdahl, Executive Supervisor by JES C, said: “We are pleased to announce that Paris will be the host city of the Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2021. It’s exciting to be returning to the French capital for the first time with a Eurovision event over 40 years. The France Télévisions team has the passion, commitment and energy to create a fantastic show in December where talented young artists can shine and imagine they will win the Junior Eurovision trophy. “

Alexandra Redde-Amiel, Head of Variety and Entertainment at France Télévisions, said:” Next December France will host a Eurovision event for the first time in 43 years! A wonderful project! The Junior Eurovision Song Contest is an incredible new challenge for us to produce an authentic show, and especially for me as an Executive Producer! The Junior Eurovision Song Contest represents the cultural diversity of our young audience in Europe and that means a lot to me. We will go out of our way to deliver a great, unique and ambitious show in Paris. “
