"Sense tu" ("Without you") was Andorra's entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 2006. Performed in Catalan by Jenny, the song had to qualify from the semi-final, due to Andorra's failure to make the top ten in the previous Contest.

On the night, the song was performed fourth, following Slovenia's Anžej Dežan with "Mr Nobody" and preceding Polina Smolova of Belarus with "Mum". At the close of voting, the song had only received 8 points (from neighbours Spain) and finished in 23rd - last - place, thus forcing Andorra to qualify through the semi-final in their next Contest appearance.

The song itself is a dramatic ballad, with the singer describing herself as being "at the end of the road" without her lover. She sings that she has no reason to live without him, in fact.

The performance of the song was somewhat criticised by fans and commentators, as Jenny was surrounded by a number of dancers wearing white lingerie and Jenny herself performed in what looked like a black nightgown.

It was succeeded as Andorran representative at the 2007 Contest by Anonymous with "Salvem el món".
