Bidding phase and host selectionEdit

The European Broadcasting Union (EBU) invited broadcasters to bid for the rights to host the Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2009; three bids were received from Belarus, Serbia, and Ukraine.[6] TV4 of Sweden had originally sent in a bid during summer 2007, but soon withdrew its bid after deciding to completely withdraw from the contest.[7]

On 6 June 2008, after deliberations by the EBU, the National Television Company of Ukraine (NTU) was granted the rights to the 2009 contest and confirmed they would host it in Kyiv.[8] Ukraine also hosted the Eurovision Song Contest 2005 at the same venue.

On 12 November 2009, Ukrainian Deputy Prime Minister Ivan Vasiunyk declared that the contest would not be postponed; (earlier) Party of Regions member of parliament Hanna Herman had called on Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko to cancel the song contest because of the 2009 flu pandemic in Ukraine.[9]

Edit

Logo of the contest titled "Tree of life" is based on the artwork "Sunflower of life" by Maria Primachenko, a well known Ukrainian folk art painter.[10] Creative design of the show was based on the logo of the contest, works and ideas of Primachenko as well as on the concept of the show, titled "For the joy of people".[11]

ParticipantsEdit

The EBU announced the complete list of participating countries in the 2009 Contest on 8 June 2009. 13 countries competed in the contest. Sweden returned after missing the previous year's contest, while Bulgaria, Greece and Lithuania withdrew from the contest.[4]

According to the rules of the contest, participants must sing in one of their national languages, however they are permitted to have up to 25% of the song in a different language.[citation needed]
