Denmark made its debut at the 1957 Contest and has won the Contest three times - in 1963, 2000 and 2013. Their first win saw the country become the first to win with a duo representing it. Following this the country failed to score a Top 5 finish for two decades and during the 1990s it was eliminated from three Contests due to poor results.

Since the 2000s, they have fared better overall, achieving a further two wins and to date have finished in the Top 5 fourteen times in total.
