The EBU has confirmed that the voting system for Junior Eurovision will remain the same as seen since 2017, but with small changes to the online vote.
Voting will remain 50% online voting and 50% jury voting for the Junior Eurovision Song Contest. As seen since 2017 there will be two chances to vote for your favourites, one from November 27 to 1 minute before the live broadcast on November 29. A small change has been made to the online vote, you can now select only 3 countries to vote during the contest, this compared to between 3 to 5 countries at previous contests.
Currently the EBU is debating changes to the way in which the votes will be presented during the show. Due to the low number of countries taking part this year it is being discussed whether the spokespersons will announce 8, 10 and 12 points instead of just 12 points.
It has already been confirmed that spokespersons will be presenting their nations jury results from their home country. This is the first time since 2012 that a live link back to each country will be used at Junior Eurovision.
The Junior Eurovision Song Contest takes place on November 29. Thirteen countries are competing in the Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2020. They are:
- Belarus – Arina Pehtereva – “Aliens”
