Barcelona wants to host the next edition of the Junior Eurovision competition

On the 20th anniversary of María Isabel's Junior Eurovision win with her song “antes muerta que sensilla”, Spain will organize the festival in 2024. This news comes after France, winner of the previous edition with Zoe Clouzor and her song “Cœur”, decided not to host the tournament for the second year in a row. As a result, the European Broadcasting Union (UER) had to award the position to another country, and since the Spanish candidate, Sandra Valero, came in second place in the last edition, the Spanish country was chosen.

RTVE has not yet confirmed which city will host this TV show, but the mayor of Barcelona, Jaume Colboni suggested that Barcelona would be the host of the 21st edition of the competition. Colboni said in a message on his Twitter account, “There is no place like Barcelona to celebrate the Junior Eurovision 2024.” He argued this by pointing out that the city is capable of hosting great music events, taking into account our great theatres, such as the Olympic Stadium or the Palau Sant Jordi. In addition, he added that Barcelona has the ideal conditions to be able to make this edition “the best yet.”

After Spain's Maria Isabel won the second edition in 2004, the third edition was not organized in Spain, but in Belgium. In reality, This year will be the first time that Spain hosts this competition. That's why it's so exciting. Even Martin Junior Executive Supervisor Osterdal expressed his enthusiasm. “After twenty years of winning, we are delighted to finally bring the competition to Spain, and we are grateful to RTVE for agreeing to host this competition, which gives young European artists the opportunity to showcase their talent.”
