The representative of Monaco at the Eurovision Song Contest 1967, Minouche Barelli, died last week, on the 20th February. She was only 56 years old. She suffered from a serious disease since last year.
Minouche Barelli sang “Boum-badaboum” at the Eurovision Song Contest in Vienna in 1967. The song, written by Serge Gainsbourg and Michel Colombier and conducted by Minouche's father Aimé Barelli, finished 5th with 10 points.
In 1980, Minouche participated in a semi-final of the French preselection of the Eurovision Song Contest. Her song Viens dans ma farandole finished 6th and didn't make it to the final.
