The country's best performance at the contest has been 5th place, achieved twice to date - in 2007 when North Macedonia was represented by Rosica Kulakova and Dimitar Stojmenovski with "Ding Ding Dong"; and again in 2008 with Bobi Andonov and "Prati mi SMS". Their worst performance at the contest has been the last place, achieved three times to date in 2006, with Zana Aliu coming 15th, in 2013, with Barbara Popović coming 12th and in 2015, with Ivana Petkovska & Magdalena Aleksovska coming 17th.

On 13 July 2012, MKRTV confirmed to that North Macedonia would withdraw from the contest due to issues with the voting process in the contest and the lack of budget available for participation. However, in 2013 North Macedonia announced its return to the competition to be held in Kiev. On 4 September 2014, North Macedonia announced its withdrawal from the 2014 event in Malta. North Macedonia returned again in 2015.

North Macedonia has placed 12th eight times.
