Morocco: No return for 2014!

It's been confirmed that Morocco WON'T be returning to Eurovision next year! :-(

The only Moroccan representation was in 1980, when they debuted with Samira Said - she only managed a disappointing 18th place (second to last). And because of this, the president (apparently) called for the country to withdraw... Plus I don't think it helped that Israel returned a year later - Morocco saw on reason to return and just haven't bothered since. SNRT have said that they still may return one year - so there's still hope although that does look unlikely. SNRT are the only broadcaster in Morocco which are part of the EBU, and hence the only broadcaster that can send an entry to Eurovision.

Take a look at the only Moroccan entry ever to grace the Eurovision stage...
