After failing to appear in the first two contests, Liechtenstein made their debut in Moscow, just missing out on a spot in the final by two points in their semi final. While this was an encouraging debut, the microstate failed to make an appearance in the following contest - before returning in triumphant style in Stockholm, with 77 Bombay Street managing to come in second place, only missing out on victory by four points this time. The group would not have as much success in Manchester, however, as they lost a considerable number of votes from their quarter final to the semi final.
More success would come though in the next two contests, with Kerstin Merlin's "Himmel & Hölle" making it in to the top ten (achieving a 3rd place in the semi final) in Tórshavn - the song now being regarded as one of the strongest in the entire competition by some members. Girl group Dreieck would also have success in Madrid, achieving second place in both their quarter final and semi final before finishing 8th in the final itself. But in Bratislava, the country would fail to make it out of the quarter finals for the first time, a result that may have led to their withdrawal for the tenth contest.
