Andorra La Vella (Andorra)

The last time we saw Andorra grace the Eurovision stage was in 2009, the country decided to withdraw from the competition in 2010 and has not returned since.

The Andorran broadcaster has confirmed to ESCToday that it has no intention to partake in forthcoming the Eurovision Song Contest in the Netherlands. RTVA will be absent from the contest for 11th consecutive time, this year marks the 10th anniversary of their last Eurovision participation.

Thus Andorra joins Slovakia in the list of countries who have confirmed their absence from next year’s Eurovision edition in the Netherlands.

Andorra in Eurovision

Andorra is a quaint and beautiful landlocked country nestled between Spain and France in the heart of the Pyrenees.

The country debuted at the Eurovision Song Contest in 2004 in Istanbul and has only competed 6 times in our beloved contest. The tiny principality hasn’t ever qualified to the Grand Final. We got to hear songs in Catalan thanks to Andorra’s participation in Eurovision, 3 of their entries were entirely in Catalan whilst the other 3 were in Catalan/English.
