Der kleine Song Contest was a one-off music competition in the Eurovision format, organised and broadcast by the Austrian broadcaster Osterreichischer Rundfunk.

The competition consisted of three semi-finals between 14 and 18 April 2020 and a final on 18 April 2020, and was hosted by Andi Knoll. All shows were broadcast on the television channel ORF 1, as well as on the streaming platform ORF-TVthek.
