France’s Junior Eurovision Journey
France took part in the Junior Eurovision Song Contest in 2004. Represented by Thomas Pontier singing “Si on voulait bien”, France finished in 6th place earning 78 points. However, the country withdrew from the Contest, citing a ‘Eurovision overkill’. France would not rejoin the Contest until 2018. Since then, France has become a Junior Eurovision powerhouse, finishing in the top 5 in each of their four subsequent participations. France won the 2020 edition of the Contest, with Valentina singing “J’imagine”.
France participated in the 2022 Junior Eurovision Song Contest with Lissandro and the song “Oh Maman!”. They won the contest, achieving a total of 203 points. Lissandro came first in the jury vote with 132 points, followed by third place in the televote with 71 points.
