Lise Darly is a French singer and was selected to represent Monaco in the 2005 Eurovision Song Contest, held in the Ukrainian capital of Kiev. Lise was born in Nice. She made her mark by beating over a hundred rivals to win the Graine de Star Tour in 1999. She subsequently became a professional singer in 2001, and in 2003 entered a casting process designed to find a suitable singer to represent Monaco in the Eurovision Song Contest 2004, Darly came second in the process. She thus became the obvious choice to represent Monaco in the Eurovision Song Contest 2005. In Kiev, Lise sang a love song entitled Tout de moi, written by Philippe Bosco, who also wrote the 2004 Monegasque Eurovision entry, Notre planète, then performed by Maryon. Märyon had ended the 2004 semi-final in 20th place, and because of this modest placing in 2004 Lise started in the semifinal line-up, from which only ten countries would progress to the grand final. In the running order of the semifinal, Monaco sang 6th. Monaco and Lise ended up 24th out of 25 countries in the semifinal, therefore placing 38th out of 39 total countries, beating only Lithuania. Monaco received 10 points from Andorra, 10 points from France and 2 points from newcomers Moldova.
