Kazakhstan in the Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2019
Kazakhstan has participated in the Junior Eurovision Song Contest once since their début at the 2018 edition in Minsk, Belarus. Their sole entry was entry was selected through a national final organized by the Kazakh public broadcaster Khabar Agency.
The 2018 contest marked the first time that Kazakhstan has participated in any Eurovision event.
On 25 November 2017, Channel 31 of Kazakhstan revealed their intention to participate in the Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2018. Initial claims emerged on 22 December 2017 from both the Kazakh Minister of Culture and Sports, Arystanbek Mukhamediuly; and the Director General of Channel 31, Bagdat Kodzhahmetov; that Kazakhstan had applied to become a member of the EBU, with the hope of participating both in the Eurovision Song Contest and the Junior Eurovision Song Contest. Kodzhahmetov invited Daneliya Tuleshova, winner of the fourth season of Ukraine's version of The Voice Kids, to take part in the casting process to represent Kazakhstan in the Junior Eurovision Song Contest. The next day, however, the EBU made a statement the following day rejecting the possibility of Kazakhstan becoming an active member of the EBU, owing to the fact that Kazakhstan is neither within the European Broadcasting Area nor the Council of Europe.
Prior to this, Kazakhstan had sent a delegation to the 2013 and 2017 contests and broadcast the latter live. Channel 31 also stated its intention to broadcast the contests in 2018 and 2019. Khabar Agency has been an associate member of the European Broadcasting Union (EBU) since January 2016.
