Kazakhstan at The Junior Eurovision Song Contest
On July 25th 2018, Kazakhstan announced they would be participating in Junior Eurovision 2018 and this marks the country's debut not only at Junior Eurovision, but in any Eurovision event. Prior to this, Kazakhstan has previously sent a delegation to Junior Eurovision 2013 and 2017.
In November 2017, Channel 31, a Kazakh television station, revealed their intentions to participate in Junior Eurovision 2018; however, these intentions were soon rejected as Kazakhstan is not a full member of the EBU, and only an associate member.
All the team at Eurovoxx would like to wish this young, talented singer a big іске сәт in Minsk!
