The 2018 Junior Eurovision Song Contest, which was held in Minsk, has been won by Roksana Węgiel from Poland with “Anyone I Want To Be”. For the first time in Junior ESC history Poland could win the contest. With the highest votes of the televoting, Poland could overtake Australia, which was the winner of the jury votes.
Another record has been achieved: for the first time 20 countries competed for the Junior trophy. There were two new countries Wales and Kazachstan which were highly appraised. For the second time after 2010 the Belorussian broadcaster BTRC has been hosting the Junior ESC, not the real ESC unfortunately.
The country of Belarus was able to show the country in the best way with lovely postcards from the countryside as well as the city of Minsk, where the contest took place.

About me: As one of the founders of eurovisionlive.com I am responsible for the interviews with the singers and the editorial content. My passion for the Eurovision Song Contest exists since my early childhood. The exotic music, different cultures and languages have given a lot of inspiration to me. Since my very first ESC in Dublin 1994 I particularly appreciate the get together and friendship of all the nationalities and Riverdance was a thrill!
