As the curtain was set to rise at the Grand Final of the Eurovision Song Contest 2023, RTL Luxembourg produced a show-stopper of their own: announcing that Luxembourg would make its long-anticipated comeback to the Eurovision stage in 2024, more than 3 decades since their last appearance in 1993.

Luxembourg is one of the founding 7 countries, and has won the Eurovision Song Contest 5 times.

Their first victory came in 1961 thanks to Jean-Claude Pascal and Nous Les Amoureux (‘We The Lovers’); ambiguous gender references allowed the Parisian to sing about a homosexual relationship at a time when such a topic would not have been discussed as openly as it would today.

Another win followed in 1965, when France Gall took the trophy with Poupée De Cire, Poupée De Son (Wax Doll, Rag Doll) - a song packed with double entendre, wordplay, and puns, and no less controversy than the previous victory. 

Wins for Vicky Leandros and Anne-Marie David in 1972 and 1973 respectively, before a final victory in 1983 thanks to Corinne Hermùs, cemented the Grand Duchy’s place as one of the most successful nations in Eurovision history.
