Junior Eurovision: Russia opens submissions, national final on 3 June

Russia has open submissions for their national selection for the Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2018. As in previous years, the broadcaster will select their next representative through an open procedure which will see some new features to select the national finalists.



All interested singers aged between 9 and 14 years with or without song should send their applications no later than 25th March by filling the form available on the official website of the organiser company, Igor Krutoy‘s Academy.

When the submission period is closed, the candidates will take part in live auditions and workshops with professionals from the Igor Krutoy’s Academy. This stage of the competition will take place from 1 to 5 April in Sochi.

Following the audition phase, some finalists will be selected to compete in the Russian national final which will take place on 3rd June in Crimea. In addition, the organisers will previously work with the finalists on their songs, stagings and appearance.

The Russian broadcaster hasn’t revealed how the winner will be chosen in the final yet.

Polina Bogusevich represented Russia at the last year’s Junior Eurovision Song Contest with the song ‘Wings’ achieving the first place.

  1. Remember when people started complaining when Russia’s JESC selection took place in Crimea ever since 2016? Seriously people! Russia’s selection is held in Crimea for ECONOMICAL reasons! 😮
