Slovenia has participated in the Eurovision Song Contest fourteen times, debuting at the 1993 contest, and competing in every year since, with the exceptions of 1994 and 2000, after poor results prevented Slovenia from competing.

Slovenia's best position was 7th, when Darja Švajger sang "Prisluhni mi" at the Eurovision Song Contest 1995, and in 2001 when Nuša Derenda sang "Energy". Darja Švajger has represented the country twice, in 1995 and 1999.

However, since the introduction of semi-finals at Eurovision in 2004 Slovenia's record at Eurovision has been poor; for 4 years the Slovene entry was relegated to the semi-finals. However, in 2007, Alenka Gotar progressed Slovenia to the final for the first time with the song "Cvet z juga". At the final she came 15th.

Slovenia had previously been represented at the contest as Yugoslavia between 1961 and 1991. 4 of the 27 entries were from Slovene artists.

The Slovene natioanl final to select their entry is EMA, broadcast, along with Eurovision, by Radiotelevizija Slovenija (RTV SLO).
