Lise Darly (born 27 December 1981) is a French singer and was selected to represent Monaco in the 2005 Eurovision Song Contest, held in the Ukrainian capital of Kiev.

Lise was born in Nice. She made her mark by beating over a hundred rivals to win the Graine de Star Tour in 1999. She subsequently became a professional singer in 2001, and in 2003 entered a casting process designed to find a suitable singer to represent Monaco in the Eurovision Song Contest 2004, Darly came second in the process. She thus became the obvious choice to represent Monaco in the Eurovision Song Contest 2005.

In Kiev, Lise sang a love song entitled Tout de moi (All of me), written by Philippe Bosco, who also wrote the 2004 Monegasque Eurovision entry, Notre planète (Our planet), then performed by Maryon. Märyon had ended the 2004 semi-final in 20th place, and because of this modest placing in 2004 Lise started in the semifinal line-up, from which only ten countries would progress to the grand final. In the running order of the semifinal, Monaco sang 6th (between Latvia and Israel).

Monaco and Lise ended up 24th out of 25 countries in the semifinal, therefore placing 38th out of 39 total countries, beating only Lithuania. Monaco received 10 points from Andorra (who were using a jury due to an insufficient number of televotes made in the tiny principality), 10 points from France and 2 points from newcomers Moldova.

A CD single has been released in Monaco and the southern region of France, with the following tracklisting: 01. Tout de moi (version symphonique) – 02. All of me (version symphonique) – 03. Tout de moi (version pop-rock) – 04. All of me (version pop-rock) – 05. Tout de moi (version symphonique; CD-ROM video)

A new single was released in January 2008 called "Quand nos coeurs s'attachent". The song is available on iTunes and French music site Fnac, but does not appear to have made the French charts.

Now she is living and working in Monaco. Lise Darly was one of stars on New Year Party in Monaco.
