Our friends at ESC+Plus have revealed this afternoon exclusively that Spain has no plans to return to Junior Eurovision in 2014. The Spanish Head of Delegation told the site in Copenhagen that:
We don’t do Junior Eurovision and we won’t take part in this years contest
There had been hope that Spain would return to the contest this year due to comments made last summer in response to Spain possibly returning in 2013. In December Spain was named as one of the countries which the EBU had been talking to about taking part in the Junior contest.
Spain withdrew after the 2006 contest due to changes in the format, it had been one of the most successful countries in the contest winning the 2004 contest and finishing second in 2003 and 2005.
