The Eurovision Song Contest 1971 was the 16th since the first in 1956. It was held in Dublin, Ireland, a city to be used for almost all the competitions in the 1990s. The new voting system that was introduced in this Eurovision did have one big problem: some juries gave fewer points out than others in hope to get their own country to win.

Groups of no more than six people were allowed on stage for the first time at this edition, meaning Peter, Sue & Marc representing Switzerland were the first group to ever perform at Eurovision.

The contest was won by Monaco. Monaco's win was their only victory to date. The song was performed by a French singer, living in France, conducted by a French native and written by a French team.
