Luxembourg was represented by the group Park Café, with the song 'Monsieur", at the 1989 Eurovision Song Contest, which took place on 6 May in Lausanne, Switzerland. For the first time since 1978 (and only the third time ever), broadcaster RTL organised a public national final rather than their usual method of internal selection.


The national final was held on 5 March at the RTL studios, hosted by Jean Octave and Manette Dupong. Park Café performed three songs with the winner chosen by a public televote.[1]
