Will France take part at Junior Eurovision 2016?

The Maltese national for Junior Eurovision 2016 took place yesterday with the head of delegation of France, Edoardo Grassi, announcing the winner at the end of the show. Does this mean we will see France competing at Junior Eurovision for the second time?

Three heads of delegations were invited by PBS to decide the 75% of the final result of MJESC, Nicola Caligiore from Italy, Joana Levieva-Sawyer from Bulgaria and Edoardo Grassi from France, who was responsible for the announcement of the Maltese representative Christina Magrin. The last one was also introduced as the head of delegation of France for the Junior Eurovision Song Contest at the beginning of the show:

A total of 9 countries, out of the 18 expected ones, have officially confirmed participation at the upcoming edition of the Junior Eurovision Song Contest until the date. Poland is highly rumoured to take part in the competition after an absence of more than a decade, but an official confirmation hasn’t been made yet.

France’s only appearance at Junior Eurovision was in 2004 with Thomas Pontier and the song “Si On Voulait Bien”, they reached a 6th place.

Would you like to see France competing in Valletta? Which countries do you want to enter this year’s competition?
