We have to go all the way back to Millstreet 1993 to see Luxembourgs last appearance in the Eurovision Song Contest. For the last few years, the enthusiasm to bring Luxembourg back has grown bigger and bigger, and especially after The Netherlands victory in Tel Aviv last May.
The Facebook site “Bring Luxembourg back to Eurovision” has gained almost 2 000 members in a short period of time and even former Eurovision artists have stated their support for a Luxembourg comeback
Luxembourg is one of the countries that won the most in Eurovision. Fans of the contest in Luxembourg are now asking for Luxembourg to return to Eurovision. Let´s mobilize, because this is essential!– Anne Marie David, Winner of Eurovision 1973
Sadly, today RTL confirms that Luxembourg will NOT participate in the Eurovision Song Contest to be held in The Netherlands next year.
Luxembourg was one of the seven countries that participated in the very first Eurovision Song Contest in Lugano back in 1956, and has won the contest five times (1961, 1965, 1972, 1973 and 1983)
Well known artists like Baccara, Lara Fabian and of course Anne Marie David have all represented Luxembourg in the Eurovision Song Contest.
