Junior Eurovision will start at 16:00 CET, as the contest moves forward one hour after changing for the 2020 contest.
The Junior Eurovision Song Contest is moving back to its usual time slot of 16:00 CET, having been moved back 1 hour in 2020. Last year TVP was given permission by the EBU to delay the final until 17:00 CET, however, for 2021 the contest is back to the time slot it has occupied since 2016.
The Junior Eurovision Song Contest has had a number of different start times since it was first held in 2003. Between 2003 and 2015 the contest began at 20:15 CET (excluding 2011 when it started at 19:30 CET). The contest was moved in 2016 to a timeslot that was deemed more suitable for the age group targeted by the contest.
