Last night, Luxembourgish Eurovision fans had a party of their own. The Eurovision Gala Night was held in the city of Luxembourg, with several winners attending such as Alexander Rybak, Loreen, and Linda Martin. Conchita, who was expected to appear, pulled out at the last minute.

According to local newspaper Luxemburger Wort, Linda Martin stopped her set in order to pose the all-important question to a special guest in the front row: “Isn’t it time Luxembourg returned to Eurovision?”. That special guest was none other than Luxembourg’s Minister of Culture, Maggy Nagel. Linda went on further, saying how “it’s time to raise the funds to get Luxembourg back where it belongs in Eurovision”. Ms. Nagel nodded her head and said “yes”, leading to a round of applause and cheers from the crowd.

A mini-contest was also held, and was won by Inês Pinto representing Portugal, who covered Vânia Fernandes’ “Senhora do mar” from the Eurovision Song Contest 2008.

Although this is just a simple “yes”, it means a lot! Luxembourg, a top country back in the day and a five-time winner, is one of the most international European countries, representing everything Eurovision stands for. We want to see it return for the contest in 2016, if not 2015.

It would be nice to see Luxembourg back in 2015, especially as they were one of the first countries to participate in the very first edition of ESC, it would seem fitting to see them back for the 60th, even if it was just to come back for 2015 then withdraw again if they wished.

You could have used “Si La Vie Est Cadeau” by Corrine Héres because that was after all the very last winning Luxembourg entry in 1983 … ten years after Anne Marie David. And wanting Luxembourg to be part of it again sounds nice, but still kinda not believable … and sadly from a televoting standpoint I have to agree: every single country surrounding the little Luxembourg would benefit with some points … It shouldn’t be that way but who am I to judge that … Finally: who cares if we have 39 or 100 countries taking part in the 2015… Read more »

Poor Maggy was probably sitting there thinking “Why me?” … But Luxembourg is definitely a nation “what knows how to write a song”, and should be lured/dragged back in, by fair means or foul. So, pretty please, Maggy — let your non-odious little country bring back a quality song or two, to help raise the comp back up above the shoite. You not only hold the ranking of equal second in the greatest number of victories, but — arguably! — those victories were collectively of a higher standard than those of the three other equal-ranked countries (France, Sweden, UK).

Well it is hard to disagree with Linda ‘The GOBSHITE’ Martin. If Maggy disagreed she would probably have called her an ‘odious little woman’ Lol! Seriously though, it’s about time they started thinking about coming back. Luxembourg for 2016 please!!!

I would love to see Linda Martin storm into the offices of RTL, in the Eurosong 2014 style, demanding to see the boss. The slightest whiff of a no – Gobshoite !

The best article would be “Luxembourg: RTL returns to Eurovision 2015 in Vienna!” I wanted 40+ countries this year, but…. we stay in 39. 🙁 So sad!!

If they will return, there will probably be a Benelux voting bloc with Netherlands, Belgium and Luxembourg 🙂

It would be the best day of my life, if I saw an article with the title “Luxembourg: RTL returns to Eurovision Song Contest 2016”. 😀
