Australia will not broadcast or participate in Junior Eurovision 2020

| September 16, 2020

Back in July, Australia confirmed that they would not be participating in Junior Eurovision 2020 in Poland due to the COVID-19 pandemic. And now they have confirmed that they will also not be broadcasting the show on any network.

"Due to restrictions and the ongoing uncertainty surrounding the pandemic, SBS informed the EBU in July that Australia would not be competing in the Junior Eurovision Contest 2020."

Australian broadcaster SBS, who was responsible for their participation in 2015 and 2016, and ABC, who took over from them from 2017 onwards, have both confirmed that they will not be broadcasting the contest.

Instead, any Aussie’s wanting to catch the show will need to tune into the live stream on the official Junior Eurovision YouTube account. The show will be live in Australia in the early morning of Monday 30th November.
