Junior Eurovision 2023 will take place in Nice on 26 November!
Lissandro had won Junior Eurovision last December and when Head of Delegation Alexandra Redde-Amiel soon after said we’re all welcome to France in 2023, speculation started as to where it would take place. Now the answer is here: Nice!
The European Broadcasting Union (EBU) and France Télévisions proudly announced so this morning. The event will take place at the Palais Nikaïa:

It’s the second time France will be hosting this contest, just two years after the 2021 edition took place in Paris. Something Executive Supervisor Martin Österdahl also mentions:
We are delighted to return to France for the 21st Junior Eurovision Song Contest just 2 years after a spectacular hosting in Paris. The team at France Télévisions have the experience, vision, and passion to create something truly magical in Nice this November and we look forward to working with them in the coming months on another exciting show.
Alexandra Redde-Amiel, who next to being the French Head of Delegation, also is Head of Variety and Entertainment at France Télévisions makes us enthusiastic for this coming contest already:
In 2023, the adventure starts again. What an honour to have the chance to organize and produce the one of the greatest European musical shows once again in France alongside the EBU, all the delegations and all the young artists! The Junior Eurovision Song Contest shows how much cultural and musical power our new generations have in the world.
Finally, we are extremely lucky to be welcomed by the City of Nice, the famous and iconic “French Riviera”, with its international aura. We’re incredibly grateful to Mayor Christian Estrosi and his team.
The reason we’re going to Nice is Lissandro’s victory last December with ‘Oh Maman’:
