#ESC21: Remembering Monaco At Eurovision

Over the course of April and May, on the lead up to the 2021 Eurovision Song Contest, we celebrated the countries that participated in this year’s Contest, in Rotterdam. We are now remembering the countries that had previously participated in the Contest – today we remember Monaco.

Monaco debuted at the Contest in 1959, in Cannes, France. Jacques Pills finished in eleventh and last place, with his entry “Mon ami Pierrot”, scoring 1 point.
