The Spanish Public Broadcaster, RTVE, has announced that Spain is not going to return to the Junior Eurovision Song Contest. Although Ana María Bordas, the Spanish Head of Delegation, said that ‘the spanish participation was still undecided’, Spain taking part in the Contest would be quite surprising.
We do not know why Spain is not participating this year. Spain withdrew in 2006, when RTVE’s manager said that they were not supporting the base of the Song Contest. Nowadays, RTVE might not want to participate due to the corruption accusations and the bad results of the country at Eurovision, like the last place of 2017.
