    After Roksana W?giel won the Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2018 in Minsk last month, it was finally announced that Poland will definitely be the host of the next edition a few minutes ago!



    I'm so happy for Poland. Even though it's "just" the Junior Eurovision it will be a nice opportunity to get a sense of meeting EBU standards and the Polish broadcaster TVP can already practice when it comes to hosting the Eurovision Song Contest someday.
    + it's a nice thing for kids.

    I hope it will have at least the same 20 countries competing.
    This year's edition seems to be a success, ever since jESC youtube channel has gone from 133k subscribers to 190k already (the biggest monthly increase ever).
    Roksana's performance has a good number of views (getting closer to 7M views), which is significant.
    I guess, jESC now needs at least one of the Western countries to come back (maybe Sweden?) to balance out a predominantly Eastern European contest.
    And also some tweaks to the online voting system might help.

    It really feels like the Junior Eurovision Song Contest gets a bit "more popular", like people getting to know that such a thing exists.
    Anyway, Roksana is quite popular in Poland... I am pretty sure that did help this process (at least among Polish people).

    I don't like this Western VS Eastern European countries thing.... I mean,most people still count countries such as Poland and Czech Republic to be part of the "Eastern block" even though they are unmistakably Central European.
    + "Eastern European" countries do outnumber "Western European" countries (number of states, territories) anyway.. that's why I do think that a "balance of such factor" is highly subjective and misleading... but of course, a "well-received long-time player" of the Eurovision Song Contest like Sweden, Austria, Germany wouldn't harm.

    Also I remember Spain being so successful on jESC before quitting, at least some sort of a retreat for all of the Spanish eurofans.

    my "prediction" was right. Spain even might receive some form of a payback for their current Eurovision misfortunes.

    The last couple of Spanish Eurovision entries were way more suitable for JESC anyway

    The abscence of Azerbaijan and the return of Spain means it's gonna be a bit more balanced between Western Europe and former Soviet Union States
