Two broadcasters were once responsible for the Belgium entry at Junior Eurovision - as with in the Eurovision Song Contest, both Flemish broadcaster Vlaamse Radio- en Televisieomroep (VRT) and French broadcaster Radio télévision belge de la communauté française (RTBF) were responsible for organising the Belgian entry for Junior Eurovision.
The two broadcasters shared responsibility, with VRT organising one year, and RTBF organising the following year. In 2003 VRT organised the Belgian entry, sending X!NK to Copenhagen with "De vriendschapsband", while in 2004 RTBF organised the Belgian entry, sending the to the contest in Lillehammer with "Accroche-toi".
2005 marked a change to the format, with both broadcasters organising one national final due to the 2005 Contest being held in the Belgium city of Hasselt. Each broadcaster chose six songs to compete in one national final, with the final winner representing Belgium at the contest. The winner was Lindsay Daenen with "Mes rêves".
2006 returned to the previous format, with VRT organising the entry. Following this RTBF decided to withdraw from Junior Eurovision due to a lack of interest for the contest in Wallonia and in RTBF. This gave VRT total contol of Belgium's Junior Eurovision entry.
Although VRT is a Dutch broadcaster, it has been known for them to include some French songs in their national finals, for example, in 2008. However, since 2006 all Belgian entries have been in Dutch.
In 2010, Belgium sended a duo for the first time since their debut.
Belgium is also the first country who confirmed to participate in Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2011
