Armenia have this morning confirmed their participation in the Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2016, Valletta. Taking part in the contest every year since their debut in 2007, Armenia is one of the most successful countries to participate in the contest; never finishing in a result lower than tenth and with six out of their nine attempts finishing within the top three. After their first and only win in 2010, Yerevan hosted the contest the following year. Last year, Michael Varosyan finished in second place with ‘Love’.
So far, twelve countries have formally confirmed participation with another three countries also suggested to have confirmed. Last year 17 countries participated in the contest, and despite multiple withdrawals the EBU hints towards a higher number still for 2016.
