Draw Position 11, Final Position 1, Points (Final) 129

"Tu te reconnaîtras" ("You'll Recognize Yourself"), sung in French by French singer Anne-Marie David representing Luxembourg, was the winning song at the Eurovision Song Contest 1973 – on one of the rare occasions when a country has won the contest two years in succession. Vicky Leandros had won the 1972 Contest for Luxembourg with "Après toi" and the 1973 edition was consequently held in the Luxembourgish capital. Performed eleventh on the night it was awarded a total of 129 points, placing it first in a field of 17.

David recorded her winning entry in five languages; French, German (as "Du bist da"), English ("Wonderful Dream"), Spanish ("Te reconocerás") and - very unusually - in two entirely different Italian translations, entitled "Il letto del re" ("The King's Bed") and "Non si vive di paura" ("You Can't Live By Fear") respectively.

In 1974 Turkish pop singer Nilüfer Yumlu brought out a Turkish-language version of the song, entitled "Göreceksin Kendini".

Anne Marie David is one of the very few Eurovision winners to return to the Contest; in 1979 she represented France singing the song "Je suis l'enfant soleil" in Jerusalem and then finished third after Israel's "Hallelujah" and Spain's "Su canción". David was also one of the artists participating in the Congratulations special of late 2005.
