After many years of speculation and in a surprise move, Germany has announced it will make its debut at this years Junior Eurovision show in Warsaw.
The show will be broadcast on the KIKA network; a dedicated children’s channel, in collaboration with NDR AND ZDF.
Levent Geiger, a finalist in last year’s Dein Song (Your Song); a long running children’s talent show, will compose the German entry. He will also be involved in the casting, and will accompany the young performer on every step along the way to the big night in Warsaw.
From August, the KIKA show ‘Kika Live’ will show regular updates on preparations for the contest.
