Moldova made its debut at the Eurovision Song Contest in 2005, placing sixth with its first ever entry, 'Bunica Bate Toba' performed by Zdob și Zdub.

In total, Moldova has appeared in the Grand Final on 9 occasions and, in 2017, SunStroke Project took the country to the top 3 in the Grand Final for the first time ever.

In 2010, Sergey Stepanov, also from the band SunStroke Project, became an internet phenomenon when his solo saxophone performance went viral. He became known as the 'Epic Sax Guy'.
