The Junior Eurovision Song Contest has been in steady decline in the last couple of years with the most successful editions taking place in 2003 and 2004 respectively. The European Broadcasting Union which is the organising body of the event has been working hard in order to bring back interest within the event following a dismal thirteen (13) competitors last year.

2010 seems to be more successful for the organising body because there has been the addition of one particular country this year who will actually debut in the event. I am speaking with regards to the broadcaster TRM who will be sending a representative of Moldova. The other thirteen countries include Belarus (BTRC), Armenia (ARMTV), Lithuania (LRT), Russia (RTR), The Netherlands (AVRO), Georgia (GEGV), Serbia (RTS), Belgium (VRT), Ukraine (NTU), Latvia (LTV), Malta (PBS) and also the return of the broadcaster SVT for Sweden following the withdrawal of the broadcaster TV4 having exhausted the Sanden Family having selected all three sisters to represent the nation.

The European Broadcasting Union's executive Supervisor said in a statement with regards to the Junior Eurovision Song Contest "Our colleagues from Belarus are preparing an amazing television show for millions of families across Europe. Apart from showcasing the best young talents from all over the continent in a magnificent show, we are also looking forward to an unforgettable week of fun and friendship for the contestants."

With regards to the local selection here in Malta being organised by the Public Broadcasting Services, submissions are to be sent in today and tomorrow at the broadcasters' main site.
