RUV the national broadcaster of Iceland have confirmed to us that they will not be taking part in Junior Eurovision 2014. Their previous statement of Iceland “most likely” taking part in the contest was incorrect due to an error on RUV’s side. The person responding to our enquiry misread our enquiry about Junior Eurovision to be about Eurovision.
So far a total of 9 countries have confirmed that they will be taking part in Junior Eurovision 2014, with Greece returning to the contest. It is also now expected that Italy will be debuting this November in Malta.
