Sofia -

It's been an incredible show from here at the Arena Armeec, but only one talented performer could hoist the winner's trophy!

Congratulations go out to Destiny Chukunyere from Malta, with the song "Not My Soul"! Winning the contest with 185 points, the 13-year-old from the city of Birkirkara won by a 9-point margin. Tonight's victory marks Malta's second victory in the Junior Eurovision Song Contest in only three years!

Not only did Destiny win the trophy for her homeland, but she did it decisively: Malta's win with 185 points is the highest point total in Junior Eurovision Song Contest history, beating the high-water mark set by Spain's María Isabel in 2004.

Second place went to MIKA from Armenia with "Love", and third place went to Slovenia's Lina Kuduzović with her song "Prva ljubezen".

Trophies will be given out to our three top placed acts in a press conference immediately following the show this evening.

The full results are as follows:

  1. 185 points - Malta
  2. 176 points - Armenia
  3. 112 points - Slovenia
  4. 105 points - Belarus
  5. 093 points - Albania
  6. 080 points - Russia
  7. 079 points - Serbia
  8. 064 points - Australia
  9. 062 points - Bulgaria
  10. 051 points - Georgia
  11. 038 points - Ukraine
  12. 036 points - Ireland
  13. 036 points - Montenegro
  14. 036 points - San Marino
  15. 035 points - The Netherlands
  16. 034 points - Italy
  17. 026 points - Macedonia

The full split of jury and televotes will be revealed in the coming weeks.

In the thirteen years that Junior Eurovision has been running, many performers have grown up to have successful careers in their home countries and beyond, with a few even "graduating" to the Eurovision Song Contest. We would like to extend our heartfelt appreciation to all of the brilliant young artists that we saw on stage tonight, as well as their teams from the seventeen participating nations here in Bulgaria tonight.

    Great little performer and a voice with a lot of potential. Would like to see her at the adult Eurovision song contest in a few years maybe... however, she and her song should have been disqualified. The melody is a complete plagiarism of Cee Lo Green. It's actually so striking and shameless. report to the moderator

    Songs like Malta would be placed to adult festival not to JESC. Many songs was overated like Albania or Armenia. Macedonia to me was one of the songs that were underrated and it was such a song that would represent a children's festival not ballads or type of Tina Turner's music. I admit that there was very strong competition. It was song that received very good reviews in all the interviews or the press konferenciers would be placed in the top 5 not in seventeenth place and they themselves avtors on this song. They would get the chance for that. report to the moderator

    If you look at two highest rated performances, you must notice these are two very different performances. This is a completely new situation, because previously, it was always that the best place were occupied by similar performances. It is possible that Junior Eurovision is less popular than adult Eurovision, and that's why results are more strange and reliable. Here a much smaller number of people decides the outcome. But it is possible here another concept. Recently everyone is focused on the terrorist attacks. This is a topic number one. This could cause that someone could dare to falsify results. Now nobody will notice that, because there are more important issues. report to the moderator

    These are jury results. I did not know that the televoting was liquidated. Probably due to poor sound during the first 5 performances. This is the most rational explanation, because everything must have a strict and rational explanation. report to the moderator
