SPAIN AT THE JUNIOR EUROVISION SONG CONTEST

Spain participated in Junior Eurovision for the first time in 2003, being one of the 16 countries that opened the festival in Copenhagen (Denmark). In this first edition, Sergio with his song Desde El Cielo placed 2nd with 125 points. The following year, in Lillehammer (Norway), with 171 points, María Isabel with her song “Desde El Cielo” won the only Spanish victory so far “Antes Muerta Que Sencilla” (Before I’m Dead Than Simple) won the only Spanish victory so far

A new 2nd place in 2005 and a 4th place in 2006 were the end of a successful first stage for Spain in Junior Eurovision. In these first four consecutive editions, the contest gained great popularity among the Spanish public, thanks to a large extent to the pre-selections with which RTVE chose its representatives, such as Eurojunior. They were also the starting point for the musical careers of many of the singers who are now present in the Spanish music market, such as Blas Cantó (who represented Spain in 2021), Dani Fernández and Antonio José

Despite the festival’s resounding success, the public corporation decided to withdraw from the event in 2007, claiming that it “promoted stereotypes that were not shared”. During these years of absence, public interest in Junior Eurovision continued and the EBU tried, albeit unsuccessfully, to bring Spain back to the contest. Finally, on 25 June 2019, RTVE announced its long-awaited return after 13 years of absence. In this second stage, the public broadcaster opted for internal elections and managed to maintain the good level of previous years. Both Melani y su canción “Marte in 2019 and Soleá y su “Palante” in 2021 achieved a great 3rd place.

In the last edition of 2021 held in Paris (France), Levi Díaz with “Reír (Laugh) reached 15th place with 77 points
