Azerbaijan made its debut at the 2008 Contest and have appeared in every final as of 2017. Three years after its debut, they scored their first ever victory with the song "Running Scared", performed by duo Eli & Nikki. This made them the first mixed gender duo to win the Contest since 1963.

They reached the Top 5 in five consecutive contests, from 2009 to 2013, and finished as runner-up at the 2013 Contest.

At the 2018 Contest, they competed in the first semi final but for the first time since their debut they failed to qualify for the final.
