Armenia will select its entry for the Junior Eurovision Song Contest through a televised national final, which will be held in 17 September 2011, organised by the Armenian national broadcaster Public Television of Armenia (ARMTV). The draw took place in one of the most attractive places of Yerevan, Dolphinarium. The dolphins kicked the balls with numbers and decided the live contest program.
You can watch the finale on Public TV on the 17th, during which a special song written especially for that day will be performed by all the contestants. On this day, a delegate will be chosen to represent Armenia in the upcoming Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2011 on December 3. As the rules of the Contest dictate, each participating individual or team has written the song they will be performing. However, participants' parents, music instructors, and producers are presented as co-writers. The songs have several different themes, including: childhood, education, dancing, nature, and dreams. We are expecting a very full program on September 17”, says the Head of Delegations JESC 2011 Gohar Gasparyan.
On Saturday evening, 21:30 PM, all the National Selection participants will perform their songs live and the winner will be chosen by sms and jury voting (50/50). During the contest the second special film will be shown made by the Fans of JESC.
On September 17, during Armenian National Selection of Junior Eurovision 2011, 16 songs were presented live on Armenian First Channel. The voting procedure was done traditionally by the Jury and the viewers. Dalita with the song “Welcome to Armenia”
became a leader and will represent Armenia in JESC 2011 in Yerevan.
