Belgium will not return to the Junior Eurovision Song Contest in 2021. Broadcaster RTBF has confirmed that it will not enter the event this year.
The website eurofestivales.blogspot.com writes that it has received confirmation from the director general of the RTBF content department, Sandrine Roustan, of the absence. Financial reasons were cited, with the cost of the JESC being too high.
Since VRT, the other Belgian broadcaster member of the European Broadcasting Union has also already announced that it will not be at JESC 2021, Belgium is definitely out of the event.
