Spain to take part in Junior Eurovision after 13-year break
27 June 2019 @ 22:57

SPAIN has decided to take part in the Junior Eurovision Song Contest once again – for the first time since 2006.

National radio and television company RTVE is responsible for selecting and entering candidates, who must be aged between nine and 14, and Spain's entry in the next contest on November 24 this year will be one of 18 from as many countries.

The forthcoming Junior Eurovision will be hosted by Poland, in Gliwice in the Silesia region after the 2018 edition was won by Polish candidate Roksana Wegiel.

Since the contest was launched in 2003, Spain has entered four times and – unlike in the mainstream Eurovision – has always achieved excellent results, with the lowest position being a highly-creditable fourth place, netted by Dani in 2006 with Te Doy Mi Voz ('I Give You My Voice').

Spain came second in 2003 and 2005, with Sergio and Desde el Cielo ('From Heaven') and Antonio José with Te Traigo Flores ('I Bring You Flowers'), respectively.

Few Spanish pop fans of any age will forget the catchy Antes Muerta Que Sencilla ('Rather Dead Than Simple') sung by María Isabel in 2004, which won Spain the Junior Eurovision for the first and only time and almost immediately became a number one hit in the national charts.
