The editors of the magazine have looked at the budget of the state and it can be read that the government is making 100,000 euros available to allow Monaco to return to the European song contest after seventeen years.
You read that right: there is a plan on the table to get a Monaco entry in the 2023 Eurovision Song Contest. L’Observateur de Monaco, which has been in existence since 2005, bases this on the budget report of the principality.
There may be plans, but that does not mean that the state is certain of participation. EBU, among others, will have to examine and approve the candidacy of the Monegasque broadcaster.
If that return comes, we will discover an entry from the principality for the first time since 2006.
Monaco won the Eurovision Song Contest in ’71 with Un banc, un arbre, une rue. In addition, the state was still good for silver and bronze, but the eighties and nineties let the tax haven pass by.
In 2004 and the following two years, the broadcaster was present again, but the entries flopped.
