Winning song Italy
"Tu primo grande amore"
2013 ← Junior Eurovision Song Contest → 2015

A total of sixteen countries participated, with Italy, Montenegro and Slovenia making their debuts. The winner of the contest was Vincenzo Cantiello, who represented Italy with the song "Tu primo grande amore". Bulgaria and Armenia finished in second and third place, respectively. This was Italy's first victory in a Eurovision competition since the last edition of Jeux Sans Frontières in 1999, and also marked the first time since the inaugural 2003 contest that a country had won in its débutante year.

LocationEdit

The venue for the contest was Malta Shipbuilding in Marsa

On 18 December 2013, the Maltese national broadcaster Public Broadcasting Services (PBS) and the European Broadcasting Union (EBU) announced that the Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2014 would take place in Malta. During the winner's press conference, representatives of the Maltese broadcaster showed their desire to host the event, following the Malta victory at the 2013 contest. Vladislav Yakovlev, the executive supervisor for the Junior Eurovision Song Contest, announced that there would be no host city for the contest, but that the island of Malta would be a host island instead. This was the first time Malta had hosted any of the Eurovision-related events.[1]

On 16 June 2014, the EBU confirmed that the 2014 contest would be held at three large former shipbuilding sheds of Malta Shipbuilding. The middle shed would be the main audience area and stage, while the two side sheds would be used as audience entrances and exits, restrooms, and refreshment stalls. In total, there was capacity for 4,000–4,500 people inside the buildings.[2]

FormatEdit

Graphic designEdit

On 9 May 2014, Anton Attard, CEO of the host broadcaster, revealed the Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2014 logo and slogan.[3] The slogan was "#together", while the logo was inspired by the Maltese cross.[3] Each of its coloured segments represented a feature of Malta: Sand, Sea, Stone, Grass, Sky, Dusk and Sunset.[3] The postcards included a theme of "extreme sports", and were partially filmed at the SmartCity Malta complex.[4]

The stage design was presented during the Heads of Delegations meeting held on 30 September 2014.[5] Gio'Forma, a Milan-based design company, was given the task of designing the stage for the 2014 contest. The stage used an origami-like appearance, inspired by the triangle-shaped 2014 Junior Eurovision logo.[5] The venue itself was approximately 30,000 m2 (320,000 sq ft) in size, and the production team moved into the venue on 21 October.[5]

HostEdit

On 10 September 2014, it was announced that Moira Delia would host the 2014 contest. She is known in Malta for presenting editions of Malta, Malta's national selection for the Eurovision Song Contest. She was the first presenter to host the contest single-handedly.[6]

Running orderEdit

During the Heads of Delegations meeting in Malta on 30 September 2014, the broadcaster PBS along with the production team sought permission to change the running order rule, which was to allow the artists to randomly select their position number (a system used in 2013).[7] The agreed change was for the host country, Malta, to pick their position at random, followed by countries that were to open and close the show to be picked randomly. The remaining countries would then select at random whether they were to perform in the first or second half of the show. This draw took place during the opening ceremony, at the Verdala Palace on 9 November 2013.[8] A pre-draw to decide the order in which countries would select their running order halves, took place on 7 November 2014, hosted by Moira Delia, Vladislav Yakovlev, and Gaia Cauchi.[9] PBS and the production team then decided the running order so that they could avoid similar entries performing consecutively. This method has been used in the senior contests since 2013. The Executive Supervisor along with the Steering Group presented the finalised running order shortly after the opening ceremony.[7]

RehearsalsEdit

The national broadcaster, PBS, decided at the Heads of Delegations meeting on 30 September 2014, that all participating countries would not have their rehearsals in running order; allowing for school visits and personal trips of the participants to be carried out uninterruptedly, something which had not been done in previous years.[7]

VotingEdit

The voting system for 2014 was reverted to a system previously used in both the Junior and Senior contests prior to 2013. Both the national juries and televoting awarded 1 to 8 points, 10 and then the maximum 12 points to their ten favourite songs. The way the votes were to be announced remained unchanged, the first seven points appeared on screen; whilst spokespersons from each of the participating countries read out their top three points (8, 10, and 12).[7]

On 30 October 2014, the EBU announced that a new online voting system would be introduced for the 2014 contest, to allow countries from around the world to vote for their favourite entry. The votes were not used in the official voting results, but the country who received the most online votes was presented with the new "Online Voting Winner" award, during the winners presentation conference after the show. In order to prevent vote-rigging, the online results were published via the Junior Eurovision website, after the show has concluded.[10] Due to the website crashing the online voting award was not awarded.[11]

Participating countriesEdit

On 30 September 2014, it was confirmed that sixteen countries would be taking part in the contest.[12] This was the highest number of entries since 2007. Débutante countries included, Italy, Montenegro, and Slovenia.[13][14][15] Four countries returned to the Junior Contest, including Croatia after a seven-year absence,[16] Cyprus who last took part in 2009,[17] Serbia and Bulgaria after a three and two year absences respectively.[18][19]

Other countriesEdit

For a country to be eligible for potential participation in the Junior Eurovision Song Contest, it needs to be an active member of the European Broadcasting Union.[26] It is unknown whether the EBU issue invitations of participation to all 56 active members like they do for the Eurovision Song Contest.[26] Sixteen countries confirmed their participation in the 2014 contest. The following EBU active members announced their decisions as shown below.

Active EBU MembersEdit

  •   Azerbaijan – On 30 September 2014, it was revealed by the official list of participating countries that Azerbaijan were not participating at the contest in Malta.[12]
  •   Germany – The German broadcaster Norddeutscher Rundfunk (NDR) announced they would not début at the 2014 Contest as they believed the contest would not be a success under the German television marketing standards. They did, however, observe the 2014 Contest.[27][28]
  •   Greece – It was previously reported by Esc+Plus that Greece were going to participate in the 2014 Contest. However, on 7 July 2014, the Greek broadcaster New Hellenic Radio, Internet and Television (NERIT) confirmed to the same web site that they would not be participating.[29][30][31]

However, they would be working harder to ascertain such funding with high hopes to participate in the 2015 Contest. TG4 managed to debut at the contest in 2015 for Ireland. [38][39]

  •   Romania – Bianca Dinescu, a representative of the Romanian broadcaster Romanian Television (TVR), had stated in an interview that Romania were considering a return to the contest, after being absent since 2009.[42] However, on 2 August 2014, it was confirmed that Romania were not returning in 2014, but TVR said that they have high hopes to return in 2015.[43]
  •   Spain – During the Eurovision Song Contest 2014 in Copenhagen, the head of the Spanish delegation, Federico Llano said that Televisión Española (TVE) was not planning to participate in the 2014 Contest.

The following broadcasters publicly declined to participate in the contest without providing any further explanations:

  •   Spain – According to the Junior Eurovision official Twitter account, the European Broadcasting Union were negotiating with Spanish private TV channels to manage the return of Spain to the contest.[64][65] On 28 September 2014, it was announced that a decision about allowing private TV channels to take part hasn't been taken in time for this edition.[66]
