Iceland made its Eurovision debut at the 1986 contest in Bergen. Since then, it has only missed two contests (1998 and 2002) due to relegation. It is the only nation in northern Europe not to win the contest.

Despite not having won yet, Iceland has managed two second-place finishes within 10 years of each other: 1999 with Selma and 2009 with Yohanna. In the semi-final era, Iceland has maintained a fairly good track record, qualifying for the final in all but five contests (2005-2007, 2015-2016) and finishing in the top 10 twice.
