YEREVAN. – Ticket prices for Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2011, to be held in the Armenian capital Yerevan between December 2 and 3, will range from 1,000 to 20,000 drams ($2.67-$53.50 US), and more, Junior Eurovision’s Armenian delegation head Gohar Gasparyan told Armenian, during a press conference on Tuesday. She also informed that a meeting was held in Yerevan, on the same day, with heads of the delegations of countries to participate in the contest.         

Thirteen countries have applied for participation in the event, but Turkey and Azerbaijan have not submitted such request. According to the random draw made during the aforesaid meeting, Armenia’s contestant Dalita - with her song “Welcome to Armenia” - will perform in fourth place. Russia’s singer will open and Belgium’s performer will close the event. 

The voting system is the same: 50-percent viewer and 50-percent jury votes, but this time voting will commence once all songs are performed.   

In response to Armenian reporter’s question with reference to the presenters of Junior Eurovision 2011, Gohar Gasparyan said their names will be determined at a later date.  

Twelve-year-old Vladimir Arzumanyan, representing Armenia with his song “Mayrik” (“Mother”), had become the winner of Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2010, which was held in Minsk, Belarus.

Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2011 will be held in Yerevan’s Karen Demirchyan Sports and Concert Complex.
