Notes[change | change source]

  1. Two songs tied for third-highest score with 99 points, and two other tied for lowest score with 31 points, but the official scoreboard [1] ranks Belarus as third, Russia as fourth, Macedonia as twelfth and Latvia as thirteenth placer. This is consistent with the tie-breaking rule that the song that received points from the most countries ranks higher in the case of a tie.
  2. 2.0 2.1 2.2 2.3 2.4 The official song list published on the official website [2] lists Russia, Latvia, Bulgaria, Ukraine and the Netherlands with English variants of their song title. Other sources [3] [4] list them with their original title.

Even though rules of Junior Eurovision do not allow participation of returning artists - EBU issued special permission for Russian entry 2011 performed by participant of Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2009 Ekaterina Ryabova, which is first similar case in history of the contest. According to Sietse Bakker, EBU coordinator - EBU may also drop this rule completely, starting from 2012.[4] Notably, Ekaterina had also already applied to national preselection in 2010 as well, but was disqualified following the existing rule.[9]
