Talents from 14 nations to gather at Junior Eurovision 2010
Geneva, Switzerland -

Young talents between 10 and 15 from fourteen nations will gather at the 2010 Junior Eurovision Song Contest, to be held on the 20th of November in Minsk, Belarus. It's the eight time the younger brother of the Eurovision Song Contest shall take place. Moldova is represented for the first time, Lithuanian broadcaster LRT, Latvian broadcaster LTV and Swedish broadcaster SVT return. The European Broadcasting Union (EBU) announced that today.

Apart from host broadcaster BTRC from Belarus, broadcasters from Armenia (AMPTV), Belgium (VRT), FYR Macedonia (MKRTV), Georgia (GEGT), Latvia (LTV), Lithuania (LRT), Malta (PBS), Moldova (TRM), the Netherlands (AVRO), Russia (RTR), Serbia (RTS), Sweden (SVT) and Ukraine (NTU) signed up to send in their best young singing talents. Compared to last year, one more country is being represented.

"Our colleagues from Belarus are preparing an amazing television show for millions of families across Europe. Apart from showcasing the best young talents from all over the continent in a magnificent show, we are also looking forward to an unforgettable week of fun and friendship for the contestants," says Svante Stockselius, Executive Supervisor for the Junior Eurovision Song Contest on behalf of the EBU.

Last year, 13 nations were represented at the Junior Eurovision Song Contest in Kyiv, Ukraine, which was won by Ralf Mackenbach from the Netherlands with his song Click Clack. Unlike the Eurovision Song Contest, where the winning country hosts the next event, the Junior Eurovision Song Contest is being awarded through a bid procedure. Belarusian broadcaster BTRC was awarded the competition in the summer of 2009.

    NO ROMANIA!!!!!!

    Why???? :-(
    Now I got no countries to cheer for.
    Denmark out since 2006.
    Now Romania, for the first time, why.

    (Maybe because of the last place, last year), that I still disagree with, Belarus was worst last year.
    I guess that a 3rd place in the ESC, diden't help after last year's JESC 2009 result.

    But the worst is that Romania just had to withdraw, the year Moldova debut's.
    Then no 12 to Romania or Moldova.

    Or maybe it is because of Moldova they withdrew, I don't know?

    Hope for, that Romania and TVR changes thier mind in time, if it still possible. report to the moderator
