Armenia at Junior Eurovision

Armenia joined the Junior Eurovision family in 2007, and have since cemented themselves as one of the most successful countries in the contest, having always finished on the left hand side of the scoreboard.

In their 15 participations, Armenia have finished in the top 5 on nine occassions, wracking up an impressive two wins (2010 and 2021), four second places, two third places and one fifth place.

The country has only been absent from the contest once, in 2020. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and the situation in the country at the time, Armenia withdrew from the contest. Their representative, Maléna, was invited back by the broadcaster for the 2021 contest.

Following on from Vladimir Arzumanyan’s win in 2010 with “Mama”, the Junior Eurovision Song Contest came to Armenia for the first time in. The final took place at the Karen Demirchyan Sports Complex in Yerevan on December 3rd, 2011, and was won by the group “Candy” from Georgia.
