France has selected! Lissandro will represent France at the Junior Eurovision Song Contest 2022 in Yerevan, Armenia. The announcement was made this morning by the official Twitter Account of the French Delegation. He will be performing his Junior Eurovision Song “Oh Maman!” on the Eurovision Stage. You can listen to the song in the video below:

The song is co-written by Frédéric Château, who also writes for Patricia Kaas, Florent Pagny and M Pokora and Barbara Pravi. We all know her for ending in 2nd place at Eurovision 2021 in Rotterdam with her song “Voila,” but it’s also the third time that she wrote a song for Junior Eurovision (Bim Bam Toi and J’imagine)

About Lissandro

13 year old Lissandro Formica from the small village of Moselle in the East of France is well-known from his participation on season 7 of the French version of “The Voice Kids.” It was at the age of 5 that Lissandro fell in love with music. Thanks to his dad, he discovered Elvis Presley who became his idol. Which also earned him the nickname “Elvissandro”. For his blind audition, he decided to perform “Too Much” from Elvis Presley and ended up in team Jenifer. He made it to the Grand Final of the show, where he got eliminated by the winner of season 7 Rébecca Sayaque.

“ We saw a dozen talents ,” explains Alexandra Redde-Amiel , head of the French delegation of Eurovision, referring to the selection process. ” Lissandro arrived with his universe, and we think it’s interesting to be able to offer something different, to show a new story. He has a real musical culture: his knowledge of American crooners is quite impressive. We really had a huge crush on him! ”

Talking with Junioreurovision.tv, Lissandro describes Junior Eurovision as the adventure of a lifetime: ‘I am very proud and honoured to represent France with my song, from both the pop and rock universe at the same time that I have always loved!

And what a pride to be part of the wonderful Eurovision family. I will give my best to make France’s colours shine.’
