Belgium has participated in the Contest 59 times since its debut as one of the Founding Seven nations at the 1956 Contest. Their only win to date happened at the 1986 Contest when Sandra Kim won with the song "J'aime la vie". This was seen as controversial due to the fact that she was 13 years old at the time.

Belgium has been absent only three times in total, in 1994, 1997 and 2001, due to low scores in the previous contests that relegated them from the contest.
