The Armenian public broadcaster AMPTV has confirmed that they will be competing in Junior Eurovision 2020 and Eurovision 2021.
Head of Delegation David Tserunyan has confirmed that Armenia will be taking to both the Eurovision and Junior Eurovision Song Contest stage in the coming months. Armenia’s confirmation for Junior Eurovision brings the number of nations expressing an interest or confirming participation in Warsaw to 14.
The fourteen countries are:

AMPTV has not stated how they will select their entry for Junior Eurovision 2020. It is expected due to the short time scale between today’s confirmation and the song selection deadline that AMPTV will internally select its singer and song for the first time since 2017.

Armenia debuted in the Junior Eurovision Song Contest in 2007, and have had 10 entries to date. The country is one of the most successful in the history of the contest, placing in the top 3 on 7 occasions, and winning once in 2010. Their victory came from Vladimir Arzumanyan with his song “Mama”, which received 120 points. Armenia then went on to host the contest on home soil in Yerevan in 2011. Their debut was almost as successful, as Arevik and their song “Erazanq” was just 1 point off the winning score.
