The Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2022 is set to be the 20th edition of the annual Junior Eurovision Song Contest. It is set to take place in Yerevan, Armenia on 11 December 2022, following the country's victory at the 2021 contest with the song "Qami Qami" by Maléna.[1] Organised by the European Broadcasting Union (EBU) and host broadcaster Public Television Company of Armenia (AMPTV), the contest will be held at the Karen Demirchyan Sports and Concerts Complex. This will be the second time that Armenia hosts the Junior Eurovision Song Contest, their first being in 2011.[2]

Originally, unlike in the Eurovision Song Contest, the winning country did not receive the automatic rights to host the next contest. However, since 2019, each contest has been hosted by the previous year's winning country. On 21 December 2021, it was confirmed by the EBU that Armenia, having won the 2021 contest two days before, would host the 2022 contest.[6]

On 17 February 2022, during a cabinet meeting of the Armenian government, Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan announced that the contest would take place at the Karen Demirchyan Complex. Pashinyan also mentioned that the government had allocated funds to the venue to prepare for the event.[3] It was already reported earlier in that week that Yerevan would be the host city.[7]

Provisional list of participating countries

As of 21 May 2022, the following countries have confirmed their intention to participate in the 2022 edition.

Other countries

For a country to be eligible for potential participation in the Junior Eurovision Song Contest, it needs to be an active member of the EBU.[15]

Active EBU members

  •  Azerbaijan – In January 2022, Eldar Rasulov, a member of Azerbaijani delegation, stated that the country must participate regardless where the contest is held in response to rumours that they would withdraw due to the upcoming contest being held in Armenia.[16] However, the country's broadcaster has yet to confirm their participation in the 2022 contest.
  •  Finland – In May 2022, Finnish broadcaster Yle announced that Finland would not debut at the 2022 contest because they "do not want to create new child stars or feel comfortable with children competing in these types of shows".[17]
  •  Iceland – Icelandic broadcaster RÚV sent a delegation to the 2021 contest to observe the show. They also broadcast the show on a delay of 2 hours and 45 minutes, and had a 96% viewing share despite not participating.[18] However, the Head of Press Rúnar Freyr said that it is "too early to tell" if Iceland will debut in the 2022 contest.[19]

The following countries' broadcasters confirmed their non-participation without providing further information:

Associate EBU members

Non-EBU members

  •  Belarus – Belarusian broadcaster BTRC was expelled from the EBU on 1 July 2021, therefore losing the rights to broadcast and participate in the contest unless another Belarusian broadcaster joins the EBU.[23] In August 2021, it was confirmed that the suspension would last for three years, thus Belarus will not be able to compete until 2024 unless the EBU decides to reduce their punishment.[24]
  •  Russia – Despite having initially confirmed their participation on 13 February,[25] all EBU members from Russia announced their withdrawal from the union on 26 February 2022.[26][27] On 1 March, a further statement from the EBU announced that it had suspended its Russian members from its governance structures.[28] Withdrawal from the EBU causes Russia to lose broadcasting and participation rights for future Eurovision events.
