Andorra chose their entry for the Eurovision Song Contest 2007 using an internal selection called Projecte Eurovisió. Radio i Televisió d'Andorra (RTVA) confirmed that the Andorran representative at the 2007 Eurovision Song Contest was the young punk-rock band Anonymous with their song "Salvem el món" (Save The World). Anonymous beat off competition from over eighty other candidates, and were unanimously selected by a 10-member jury.

The song was premiered on March 1 on a special gala broadcast by Andorra Televisió from the Auditori Claror del Centre Cultural i de Congressos Lauredià in the town of Sant Julia de Loria.

Anonymous took part in the semi-final of Eurovision on May 10. They performed in the 21st spot. Despite being one of the favorites, they just missed the final with a 12th position. It is suggested they failed because of political voting, as only songs from Eastern Europe progressed to the final. It led to rumours of an Andorran withdrawal in 2008.

This entry was the first from Andorra to contain lyrics in English.
