Public online voting for the Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2023 opened Friday night. Unlike Eurovision, you can choose to vote for your country's representative. This year, France won the live broadcast contest for the second time in a row. Estonia came second to last, taking 15th place.
You can vote for your favorite songs on the contest's page after watching a short recap of all 16 songs.
The vote submission window will remain open throughout Saturday and will close at 15:59 CET on Sunday, November 26, shortly before the show begins.
You can vote here for three countries – including your own country.
Voting will reopen the second time 15 minutes after all the artists have finished their performances.
In addition to the public vote the performances will also be judged by national juries.
Estonia takes part in the Junior Eurovision Song Contest for the first time. Arhanna Sandra Arbma from Räpina will perform her song "Staying Together" ("Hoiame kokku") in front of a European audience. In total 16 countries are taking part in the contest.
The Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2023 will broadcast live from Nice, France, at 16:00 CET on Sunday November 26, which could be watched via participating broadcasters and on the official Junior Eurovision YouTube channel.
Zoé Clauzure from France has won Junior Eurovision 2023 in a live broadcast from the Palais Nikaïa in France. Her song 'Cœur' is the third French song to win Junior Eurovision (the jury and online audience vote results).
Estonia's first Junior Eurovision entry, the song "Hoiame kokku," is all about friendship and staying together. Arhanna Sandra Arbma wrote the melody herself, with a little help from a friend. Her best friend Rael Laikre, who has a family band with her 6 siblings and parents, joined her to write the lyrics. Arhanna's song came second to last, taking the 15th place.
"My song is about, if you're feeling alone, there is always hope that a good friend will come soon," he said in an interview. See the official music video below.
