Albania made their Eurovision debut in 2004, with Anjeza Shahini performing The Image of You. The country placed inside the top 12 non-Big Four entries that year, meaning auto-qualification for the 2005 Contest. They have participated in every contest since their debut.

The country failed to qualify in both 2006 and 2007, but Olta Boka brought them back into the final in 2008. In 2012, Albania was represented by Rona Nishliu, and not only winning the Barbara Dex Award of that year, she placed Albania inside the top five - giving them their best placing yet.

Albania's worst placing was in 2014, with One Night's Anger.

The country has sent songs in Albanian and English, although more recently has chosen to translate their songs into English in time for Eurovision. The Albanian Festivali i Këngës requires songs to be performed in Albanian.
