The Junior World Hit Festival 7 was the 7th Junior edition of the World Hit Festival and the 57th show to be a World Hit Festival sanctioned event, organised by AS1 and Televisoras del Sur (TVS), and overseen by the World Hit Festival Headquarters. It was held on the 11th April 2020, making it the first Junior World Hit Festival to be held in the Spring, following the successful bid by the Achaean broadcaster. It was held in Auditorio Yamaha located on the grounds of Federal University of Ponce. It was the first time that the nation hosted a World Hit Festival sanctioned event.
A total of thirteen nations decided to take part in the Junior World Hit Festival, with Natanya, Llalta, Grellenbyosha-Ga and Antenovaria all competing when they didn't they edition before. Aloquirbe was allowed to compete due to the withdrawal of Britonisea, who withdrew from Achaean Republic alongside Monaeroglisseurest Pleindaguilles, Darkmania, Kalosia, Axuva, Vartugia, Merecendi and Bayilan alongside last edition's host, Besen and the reigning champion at the time, Polkopia. Togonistan won with 53 points, 15-year old Samaria who performed the song, "Karore" (Immortal) with it being the nation's first win at a World Hit Festival sanctioned event.
Since the introduction of the televote at the Junior World Hit Festival the edition before, it was the first time that the winner of the Jury vote did not go on to win the overall competition. Mercedini won the Jury vote with 28 points, while Togonistan had 21 points. The televote managed to give Togonistan a win, two points in front of Mercedini who was pushed down to second place.
The Festival was hosted by Génesis del Río.
