Morocco could again participate in the Eurovision song contest, said the director of this artistic competition, Jon Ola Sand, indicating that talks are underway on this subject with televisions in the region.
“We are having discussions with Morocco,” said Jon Ola Sand in an interview, believing that the participation of countries in North Africa and the Middle East, such as Jordan, Algeria and Lebanon, would make the contest more varied.
Morocco’s only participation in the Eurovision song contest dates back to 1980. It was represented by Samira Said with the song “Bitaqat Houb (Love Card)”. To date, this is the only song that has submitted to the contest in the Arabic language.
The kingdom of Morocco is also the first African and Arab country to participate in this competition. Samira Saïd’s song finished penultimate in 18th place.
