Luxembourg

A small, landlocked country, Luxembourg has won the Eurovision Song Contest five times and was one of the founding participants of the Eurovision Song Contest in 1956.

Luxembourg was one of the original seven participants in the Eurovision Song Contest in 1956 and over the years they achieved five victories. The journey was not always smooth though as the country finished last in 1958. Having previously sent French language entries, they opted for an entry in Luxembourgish in 1960 only to finish last again. Luxembourg's fortunes changed in 1961 when they returned to French and achieved their first victory.
Luxembourg entered Eurovision’s Hall of fame with their second victory achieved in 1965: Poupée De Cire, Poupée De Son, performed by France Gall,was the first pop song to win the contest.
Luxembourg won the Eurovision Song Contest in 1972 and again in 1973 on home ground. Spain had already won back-to-back contests in 1968 and in 1969 when they shared first place with three other countries, but 1973 was the first time that the same country won on home ground exclusively.
By the turn of the 1980s France had five Eurovision victories to Luxembourg's four but that all changed in 1983 when Parisian singer Corinne Hermès lifted the trophy. Corinne gave a powerful performance of Si La Vie Est Cadeau which was also performed last in the running order in Munich. Luxembourg hosted the Eurovision Song Contest for the fourth and last time in 1984.
The country was relegated in 1993 following their low score that year. Despite 37 appearances and five victories, Luxembourg never returned to the Eurovision Song Contest.
