After a long-awaited return to the competition, Luxembourg is about to reveal its Eurovision 2024 selection process. The country will be choosing the first artist or group to represent the nation at the contest since 1993.

Gudden Owend Lëtzebuerg! These are the words that many international fans, or simple Luxembourg enthusiasts, have been longing to hear for 30 years. This moment has now never been so close, as broadcaster RTL has announced that on Monday 3 July they will reveal the details of Luxembourg’s selection for Eurovision in Sweden next year.

“After 30 long years, RTL is delighted to announce that the Luxembourg media is now responsible for selecting the person or group who will proudly represent the colours of the Luxembourg flag in May 2024 in Sweden. Three minutes that will leave a lasting impression on the lucky candidate! [… ] Pre-selection process to be launched on July 3, 2023.”

Internal selection, national final, language, nationality?

Luxembourg’s 30-year absence from the competition leaves all questions open as to how broadcaster RTL will decide to select its representative. Preference could be either for internal selection or for a national final.

During their previous appearances at Eurovision, Luxembourg was often represented by artists of various nationalities, particularly singers from France. This raises questions as to whether, for its return, the country will decide on new rules to prioritise local artists, or whether it will continue to uphold its tradition of showcasing talent from all over the world.

This subsequently brings up discussion of which language the broadcaster will favour in its artist selection. Luxembourg has three official languages: Luxembourgish, French and German. Luxembourgish is the national language, spoken by the majority of the population. German is used for administrative purposes, while French is widely used in business and the media. These three languages reflect the country’s cultural and linguistic diversity. Or, like many other countries, will English be the preferred option?

Luxembourg at Eurovision

With five victories to its name, Luxembourg is one of Eurovision’s most successful countries. The country owes its first victory to Jean-Claude Pascal, who won in 1961 with “Nous les Amoureux”, a song with an avant-garde subtext about forbidden homosexual love.

The nation went on to top the rankings in 1965, 1972 and 1973. Their final gold medal came in 1983, the year when Corinne Hermès shone with her song “Si la vie est cadeau”.

Luxembourg’s Eurovision success is not limited to victories alone. They achieved another eight top-five finishes during their 37 appearances at the contest. The nation’s commitment to musical excellence and artistic innovation has been hailed by critics and Eurovision fans alike over the years, who have eagerly awaited the country’s return.

Are you excited about Luxembourg’s return to Eurovision? Would you prefer an internal selection or a national final? Let us know on the comment section.

I hope not, as I wish for a country that hasn’t won the contest yet to win it in 2024. Or some countries, which joined from the 1990s and onward to win. Except for Ukraine, which won in 2022, 2016, and 2004, the other times Eurovision was won by newly joined countries were only in 2011 (Azerbaijan), 2008 (Russia), 2007 (Serbia), 2002 (Latvia), and 2001 (Estonia) in a timespan of 30+ years. We need more diversity as the winning countries are now predominantly from Western and Scandinavian countries, especially after the re-introduction of the jury system in 2010.

I’m with you there. I’m really aching for somebody to win Eurovision for the first time next year or in the future. It’s been too long. Say what you Will about eurovision in the 2000s, I really like that eight countries won Eurovision for the first time in a row during that decade. It’s really sad We’ve only had two new winners in the 2010s, and we haven’t had a new winner yet for this decade. Of course, we should always be mindful of what gets sent for the contest, and sometimes a country that had previously won before might… Read more »

  • Monaco won’t participate
  • Serbia getting 26th in a grand final is highly unlikely. Minimum would be 24th.
  • San Marino getting in to the top 10 is a fever dream.
  • Luxembourg winning after its return is unlikely
  • Poland getting top 10 is only possible with a televote carry.

It’s yet to be announced, whereas Australia will get another invitation to participate in the contest as an EBU associate member. Their current invitation has expired, so it’s up to EBU to decide if Australia can even take part. I heard there are rumors Canada might be joining Eurovision 2024 since the Australian viewership was not the most inspiring, taking only half a million viewers from a country with a population of 25,7 million, making it attractive to less than 2% of its population. After all, it’s all about the numbers for a TV show.

Yes, absolutely – and breaks have to be decided beforehand so they cannot manipulate that way. A stage that needs longer to set up is not allowed.
No backing vocals and auto-tune as well.

Highly unlikely that Luxembourg will be bottom 2 – they have so many neighbours and, thus, will do well in the televote I suspect. It’s also extremely unlikely that we’ll ever see back to back wins in the contest ever again due to the number of entries. If Sweden however gets the most votes again, then they’ll win – that’s the nature of the competition. They hardly rule the world to be fair, they just put a huge effort into Eurovision, and take it very seriously. We’re not talking world domination here or a life/death situation.

Germany had eight neighbours competing in the contest this year and still finished last in the grand final. Traditionally, of course. Luxembourg has three neighbours at best. Unless you believe former Holy Roman Empire countries will massively vote for Luxembourg due to linguistic similarities. Again, it didn’t help Germany. Or Switzerland for that matter, as Remo Forrer finished in 20th place. I wouldn’t be optimistic about Sweden’s victory next year either. Unless EBU changes the voting rules (according to the Norwegian broadcaster, the decision regarding changes will be made by January 2024), people won’t forget the selfless act of Sweden… Read more »

You can talk about it bit you absolutely can not say it was cheating. She won according to rules. Käärija knows the rules, the fans know the rules.
Turn their backs? If audience likes a song they will vote for it. If not they will not vote for it. Simple as that. You see casual viewers do not care about outrage nor are they as petty as fans are
As for streaming, maybe people just like the song and stream it? Simple as that.

This is exciting news to see Luxembourg participate again and hopefully make an impact on the Eurovision stage like before! Seeing as TVMONACO will be launching on 1 September, fingers crossed that Monaco will join as well. Bulgaria, Montenegro, and North Macedonia haven’t confirmed their 2024 participation yet but they aren’t likely to withdraw indefinitely.

Hopefully for 2025, some countries will return (Andorra, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Slovakia, Türkiye) or debut (Kazakhstan, Kosovo, Liechtenstein, Vatican City maybe??? XD).
