Sweden: To Take A Year Off From Junior Eurovision

SVT To Take A Break

SVT of Sweden are to take a year off from the Junior Eurovision Song Contest according to the Junior Eurovision twitter account.

SVT earlier this year announced that Lilla Melodifestivalen was to take a break, SVT and their children’s channel are instead going to focus on a new youth project. This is not the first time that SVT has taken a break from the contest, from 2006-2009 the Swedish national broadcaster instead participated in MGP Nordic, with the commercial channel TV4 taking over in 2006, 2007 and 2009.

Sweden may still yet participate in the contest with TV4 also being an EBU member in Sweden.

  1. Buhuuuuuuuuuu! Why SVT! Please TV4! TV4, anmΓ€l Sverige snΓ€lla! Jag klarar inte ett Γ₯r utan Junior Eurovision. Aaaaaah! πŸ™

  2. I just talked to a spokesperson of TV4, and she said that they currently have no plans on participation, but will ask the reference group on the channel to think it over. If we’re not in it, this will be the first time I’m watching a Eurovision contest without my own country. πŸ™

    1. Same here, and the first one I can’t televote(unless try with the online voiting, and no one knows how happy I would be if it worked)
