A brewing comeback

Back in August 2023, RTL, the Luxembourgish national broadcaster, confirmed that the country would not be returning to Eurovision in 2023, due to the broadcaster’s intention to news features rather than music and entertainment. However, later that year, RTL reported that the government may be putting Luxembourg’s participation at Eurovision on the table.

Mostly due to financial restraints, Luxembourg has not participated since 1993 but then-Prime Minister Xavier Bettel made statements that warranted excitement. Given that he also held the role as Minister for Communications and Media, he addressed the subject of a Eurovision return in a 2022 council meeting. He stated that if Luxembourg were to return, participation would come at a high price, yet also explained that were the country to boast a win, the positive impact would yield a substantial return.

Luxembourg at the Eurovision Song Contest

Luxembourg has boasted an impressive track record at Eurovision since their debut in 1956 and have participated 37 times between 1956 and 1993. However, they have not returned since.

Despite this, the landlocked nation has seven top 3 results to its name, where 5 of those saw them take home the top prize. Luxembourg first won in 1961 with Jean-Claude Pascal’s “Nous les amoureux”. Corinne Hermès brought the last win to the country in 1983 with her song, “Si la vie est cadeau”. Their most recent entry in 1993 was “Donne-moi une chance” and was sung by Modern Times. It finished in 20th place and was awarded 11 points.
