The representatives of the Junior Eurovision Song Contest (JESC) released a special statement on the reasons for the delay in voting system.
“After a first assessment of the voting platform, it appears that one of the security features responsible for ensuring that only one vote per user could reach the system caused a delay.
While we constantly received votes on our platform, unfortunately there were delays for some users, which resulted in them not being able to reach the voting website. In total we received nearly 330,000 votes, from more than 100 countries, which is a great indication of how popular this year’s show was around the world” – the statement reads.
Polina Bogusevich from Russia won the 2017 Junior Eurovision Song Contest (JESC), with the entry song Wings. The 15th annual JESC was held at Tbilisi Olympic Palace on November 26.
