Jean-Claude Pascal (b. 24 October 1927 in Paris, France as Jean-Claude Villeminot. d. 5 May 1992) was a French singer.
After surviving the Second World War in Straßburg, Pascal first studied at the Sorbonne-university and then turned to fashion-designing for Christian Dior. On his work for costumes for the theatre-play Don Juan he came into contact with acting and made his first cinema-movie in 1949 with Quattro rose rosse. Many movies should follow, among them La Belle et l'empereur ("Die schöne Lügnerin", 1959) (aside to Romy Schneider) or Angelique and the Sultan (Angélique et le sultan, 1968) aside to Michèle Mercier.
Pascal won the 1961 Eurovision Song Contest for Luxembourg singing "Nous les amoureux" (We the lovers) with music composed by Jacques Datin and lyrics by Maurice Vidalin. He later represented Luxembourg again in the 1981 contest and finished 11th of 20 singing "C'est peut-être pas l'Amérique" (It may not be America) with words and music he composed along with Sophie Makhno and Jean-Claude Petit.
