Poland have won the Junior Eurovision Song Contest the last two years. Roksana Wegiel won in 2018, in Minsk, Belarus, with “Anyone I Want To Be”, while Viki Gabor won last year, in Gliwice, Poland with “Superheroes”. Roksana reprised her winning entry as part of the interval last year.

Q is for NOTHING. We could not find a Q for our A-Z, but if you can, let us know in the comments below or on our Social Media streams.

R is for…

“Réalta na mara” was the debut entry from Ireland in 2015 – when the Contest was held in Sofia, Bulgaria. Aimee Banks carried the flag for Ireland during their first participation.
