Moldova has participated in the Eurovision Song Contest 10 times, debuting in 2005. Following the poor result in the 2006 contest, the Moldovan broadcaster, Teleradio-Moldova (TRM) announced that it would withdraw from participation and did not allocate a budget for the 2007 Contest. However, in response to public pressure TRM filed the preliminary documents to compete and sent Natalia Barbu with song "Fight".
In 2008 Moldova, for the first time in 4 years of participating, failed to make the Final, their jazz number, "A Century of Love", finishing 12th place in a field of 19. In 2010 a saxophonist Sergey Stepanov from group SunStroke Project and Olia Tira has become internet phenomenon because of his 30 second saxophone solo.
