Romania debuted in the Eurovision Song Contest 1994 after failing to qualify from the qualification round in place for former Yugoslav and debuting Balkan countries in 1993. They have entered 18 times, and when the official semi-finals started in 2004, they have a 100% qualification record including winning the semi-final in 2005 and coming 2nd in the semi in 2014.

Romania was relegated from participation in 1995, 1997, 1999 and 2001 for failing to achieve a good placing for the contests they weren't relegated from. They were not relegated from 2003, as TVR decided to up their game a bit and finished up in the top 10.

On 22 April 2016, the EBU pulled Romania from the 2016 contest due to massive unpaid financial debts owed by TVR dating back to 2007 and withdrew its member services from the channel. However, on 6 June 2016, the Romanian government announced that it would step up and pay back all of TVR's debts, potentially clearing the way for the country to return for 2017.
