As with the main Eurovision Song Contest (at least until next year), points at Junior Eurovision were allocated in a 50/50 split between jury and public vote.
The public was once again able to vote for up to three songs via an online platform, permitting fans to vote for any country (including their own).
Lissandro is a 13-year-old performer from Moselle, in north-eastern France.
No stranger to the stage, Lissandro came to prominence in Season 7 of France's version of The Voice Kids, where he made the final alongside last year's French entrant, Enzo. Throughout the show, Lissandro showed his passion for the greats of American pop-rock, from Elvis Presley right up to Bruno Mars. For this reason, he eventually gained the nickname "Elvissandro".
When he isn't singing and dancing onstage, Lissandro has also done voice acting for a number of animated series.
