France has participated in the Contest 60 times since its debut as one of the Founding Seven in 1956. It has only been absent twice and has won the Contest five times, including a joint 1st placing at the 1969 Contest.

Along with Germany, Italy, Spain and the United Kingdom, it is a member of the "Big Five", which guarantees it automatic qualification to the final due to its financial contributions to the Contest.
