Luxembourg was one of the countries that participated in the first Eurovision Song Contest in 1956. From their debut to 1993, Luxembourg competed frequently in the Contest, being absent from the contest once during this period. However, since being relegated from taking part in the 1994 Contest the country withdrew from the contest indefinitely after a run of bad placings in the late 1980s and early 1990s.
Despite winning five times, none of their winners are from the nation at all: four of them were French while one was Greek.
In 2016, Luxembourg equaled the record of 24 consecutive non participations set by Monaco.
When scoring changed to the 12-point system in 1975, Luxembourg got the honor of being the very first recipient of the "douze points", receiving it from the Netherlands.
