JESC 2018 Rankings!

Junior Eurovision is basically Eurovision’s annoying little sister. The contest gives aspiring musicians under the age of 16 the chance to perform on one of the world’s biggest stages. This year a record twenty nations will compete in Belarus’ Minsk-Arena. The show will see the debut of Kazakhstan and Wales and is the sixteenth edition of the contest.JESC has served as a launch pad for some of the artist who have gone on to represent their nation in the main Eurovision Song Contest a few years later. Most notably this has included dutch sibling girl band O’G3NE (JESC 2007, ESC 2017), Russian twins the Tolmachevy Sisters (JESC 2006, ESC 2014) and San Marino duo Michele Perniola and Anita Simoncini who competed at JESC solo in 2013 and 2014 and represented San Marino together at ESC 2015.
