Later this week I’m off to Bulgaria to see the Junior Eurovision for the first time. I’ll be writing for ESC Insight and in anticipation have penned a post for them highlighting what I’m expecting. Those of us who love blogging find it difficult to resist a before and after.
Events over the weekend in Paris have changed my outlook about the trip, especially since learning that the host broadcaster for the Junior Eurovision – Bulgarian National Television – have postponed their opening ceremony as part of the three days of Europe-wide mourning.
According to JuniorEurovision.tv, BNT is also required to not broadcast entertainment shows during the period which may well mean that the Junior Eurovision final has an added poignancy when it goes out live this coming Saturday night from Sofia.
