Andorra’s Eurovision Journey
The micronation of Andorra made their debut in 2004 with the song “Jugarem a estimar-nos” by Marta Roure. They have participated on six occasions, until 2009. They have not been present in the competition since. Andorra’s best result was in 2007 when the nation sent Anonymous to the competition with the song “Salvem el món”. Their last Eurovision entry was “La teva decisió (Get a Life)” by Susanne Georgi in 2009.
