Israel is back to Junior Eurovision!

IBA has confirmed participation at this year’s Junior Eurovision, the broadcaster is back after a 3-year absence.

Today the final list of participants for Junior Eurovision 2016 has been announced revealing us the return of Israel. This is the second participation of IBA at the junior contest as they have only taken part in 2012 when they were represented by Kids.il. Unfortunately, the group finished 8th despite being among the favourites to win the competition. Last year, BNT confirmed to ESC+Plus that Israel intended to join the competition in Bulgaria, but they finally decided not to take part.

A total of 17 countries will be competing on November 20 in Valletta (Malta), find more information here.
