JESC 2017 | Australia confirms participation

July 31, 2017


Australia has confirmed that they will be taking part in Junior Eurovision 2017 in Tbilisi, Georgia. This will be the third appearance of Australia in Junior Eurovision.


In contrast to previous years, Australia will broadcast the contest on ABC ME, instead of SBS. This decision was made as ABC ME is more targeted at children and families. Grace Koh, host of ABC ME, will be joined by Pip Rasmussen and Tim Matthews during the broadcast of the contest. Australia will be broadcasting the contest on Monday 27th November at 7.30pm.


David Anderson, ABC Director had this to say:


“We are delighted to be with be working with SBS, the European Broadcasting Union and production partner Blink TV on such an incredible event. By utilising all of ABC ME’s internal productions (News to Me, BTN, Spawn Point) and online and social platforms, the channel is able to maximise the reach of the extraordinary contest, while introducing our audience to incredible performers and cultures from across Europe, as well as encouraging them to get behind our Australian contestant.”
