If you are of my generation, Junior Eurovision will be synonymous with María Isabel and Before death that simple. The singer from Huelva not only managed to win her edition, but with her art and her salt shaker she managed to make the whole country fall in love (and her song is already a classic).
After the great role that Chanel played in the Eurovision Song Contest 2022, you may want more and want to know when the version for boys and girls will take place and if the same feat as in Turin will be repeated.

Unlike the next Eurovision Song Contest for adults, whose Spanish representative will again be chosen at Benidorm Fest, it is expected that the participant in the children’s version will again be chosen via an internal RTVE selection.
We do not know when this selection will be made, but in 2021, for example, it was announced in mid-September, while the song was presented two months later (and a month before the contest was held).
