"J'ai déjà vu ça dans tes yeux" (English translation: "I've Already Seen That in Your Eyes") was the Luxembourgish entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1979, performed in French by American-French singer, actress and former Playboy model Jeane Manson. Manson was born in the United States but relocated to Paris in 1974. "J'ai déjà vu ça dans tes yeux" was included on Manson's third studio album Fly to New York City.

The song is a blues influenced ballad, with Manson describing a series of romantic visions (including one of a family) to her lover before telling him that "I've already seen that in your eyes" - that is to say, she can see their future together; "tous les deux—si tu veux" ("The two of us—if you want to").

The song was performed thirteenth on the night (following Belgium's Micha Marah with "Hey Nana" and preceding the Netherlands' Xandra with "Colorado"). At the close of voting, it had received 44 points, placing 13th in a field of 19.

It was succeeded as Luxembourgish representative at the 1980 Contest by Sophie & Magaly with "Papa Pingouin".
