Monaco joined the Eurovision Song Contest in 1959. The city-state won the contest in 1971 but did not host the event the following year. It remains the only microstate to have ever won the Eurovision Song Contest.

Despite finishing last with its first ever entry in 1959, Monaco went on to have a successful history in the Eurovision Song Contest. Monaco finished in the top three during the 1960s on three occasions and was only outside of the top ten once. 

Following Monaco's victory in the Eurovision Song Contest in 1971, the contest was held in Edinburgh, Scotland. Monaco continued to have a number of top five placings before withdrawing after the 1979 competition.

Following the introduction of the Semi-Finals in 2004, Monaco returned to Eurovision but after failing to qualify for three contests running, the country withdrew and has not participated in the Eurovision Song Contest since 2006.
