One of the most important events of the year, is undoubtedly the return of Luxembourg to the Eurovision Song Contest 2024, after 30 years of abscence!
The country’s public broadcaster, RTL, has announced that both artist and song will be selected through a national final, which is set to take place on January 27. Back in July, RTL had commenced the live auditions of artists who are interested in participating in the national final, without having a song in their possession.
The application platform was then opened for artists who already have a song or composers who wanted to submit their songs, which was open until yesterday, October 1 at midnight.
