Norwaymarker has been participating in the Eurovision Song Contest since 1960 and only been absent twice: in 1970, when they boycotted the contest over disagreements about the voting structure, and in 2002, when they did not qualify.

Norway won the contest in 2009, having previously twice won, in 1985 with Bobbysocks' performance of "La det swinge" (Let It Swing) and in 1995 with Secret Garden's mainly instrumental, Celtic-influenced ethno-piece "Nocturne". Despite these successes, the country also holds the unfortunate distinction of having scored the most "nul points" (zero points) in competition history, namely four times. They have also come last ten times, which is also a record. In 2009, it set itself three more records of which to be far more proud, when it claimed the 2009 title with the most votes in Eurovision history winning 387 points, getting the highest amount of twelve points in single contest and the having the biggest gap between first and second place. No one has ever reached such a high amount of points.

Since the introduction of the semi-final round in 2004, Norway's highest placing was Alexander Rybak's first place in the 2009 contest. Their next best finish was in the 2008 contest, where Maria Haukaas Storeng performed the song Hold On Be Strong, which came in 5th.

The Eurovision Song Contest is broadcast in Norway by Norsk rikskringkastingmarker (NRK), which also broadcasts Norway's national selection competition, the Melodi Grand Prix.
