Italy wins Junior Eurovision 2014!
Minutes ago, the voting concluding in Malta, for the 2014 Junior Eurovision Song Contest.
A combination of jury and televotes crowned Italy and Vincenzo Cantiello with the song “Tu Primo Grande Amore” as the winner, Italy’s first entry in Junior Eurovision!
The final results:
Italy and Armenia kept battling for the first place through the voting, until Malta and Bulgaria joined the fight, but Italy ultimately pulled ahead.
The interest in the online voting for the countries unable to televote, to find the online winner, was so great that the voting system crashed. Restart attempts were unsuccessful and the online winner had to be cancelled.
It is not yet known if Italy will host the contest next year.
