The northern country of Iceland came onto the Eurovision scene at the Bergen contest in 1986 with ICY. Up until its first of two relegations in 1998, the country placed rather consistently with Stjórnin scoring them 4th place in 1990. However, the year before, Daníel Ágúst scored Iceland their first last-place and the country's first Nul Points score.

Returning in 1999 after their relegation due to having a low average score, Selma Björnsdóttir appeared for the first time with All Out of Luck. This was Iceland's first top-three score, placing second to Sweden. In 2001, Two Tricky saw Iceland joint at the bottom of the scoreboard once again, leading to another relegation.

Since the semi-final era began in 2004, Iceland has qualified 8 times out of 14 appearances, automatically qualifying in 2004 after having placed inside the top 11 non-Big Four songs of 2003. Yohanna placed Iceland second once again in 2009, with the song Is It True?. With 218 points, this is by far the country's best result in terms of points.

However, in recent years Iceland have failed to qualify - placing on the lower end of the semi-final results tables.
