Saint Eva & Lepland first participated in the Internatia Song Contest in the first edition, being one of eight countries to do so. It originally participated under the name Dysprosia, as an overseas territory of the Kingdom of the Dysprosian Islands. Saint Eva & Lepland has chosen most of its entries through internal selections, due to a lack of available funds, although a national final called Island Voices has been used occasionally.

Early on in the contest's history, Saint Eva & Lepland generally received favourable results, finishing in the top 10 each time of its first four participations, with the latter two being chosen by the national final. However, the tables would soon turn, as Saint Eva & Lepland would finish third-last and second-last with their next two (internally selected) entries. Following these unfortunate results, SBC revived Island Voices with a new format. This resulted in a victory at the Internatia Song Contest 7, where Saint Eva & Lepland was represented by Slovak singer Kristína with the song "Life is a Game".

Internatia Song Contest 9 was held in the Leplandian capital, Woodchester. The venue was the Royal Concert Hall. This was also the host arena of Internatia Second Chance Contest 12, after Gregorian feat. Amelia Brightman won the previous edition with the song "Heaven".

Prior to the results of ISC 15, the head of SealTV said that Saint Eva & Lepland would withdraw from the Internatia Song Contest should Yazminia win. On October 3, a national final was held. Shortly after it began, SealTV confirmed Saint Eva & Lepland's participation in ISC 17. Interest in the Internatia Song Contest, which had been at an all-time low, began to increase after Tangerine Kitty finished 8th in ISC 21.

After initial reports of Saint Eva & Lepland was to be represented by Birds of Tokyo with "Lanterns" at ISC 24, it eventually transpired that SealTV internally selected Helen Trevillion with "The Last Unicorn", a cover of America's song from the film of the same name. Birds of Tokyo eventually represented Saint Eva & Lepland in ISC 64 with their song "I'd Go With You Anywhere", finishing in 4th place.

NOTES:
1. ^ Saint Eva & Lepland participated in the first edition of ISC under its former name of Dysprosia.
2. ^ Due to a mistake in the tallying of the ISC 17 semi-final, Spirevo was accidentally recorded as awarding itself 12 points, rather than giving 12 to Tashkveny. This allowed Saint Eva & Lepland an unmerited qualification.

Voting System[edit]

Starting with the first edition, Saint Eva & Lepland's points were decided by a televote and jury combination. The jury consisted of 5 music professionals and 5 regular citizens from different demographics. The top ten of the televote were given 36-30-24-21-18-15-12-9-6-3 points, and the jury top ten were given 12-10-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 points which were then added to the televote points (i.e. the televote-jury split was 75%-25%). Televoting figures were generally close, with the winning song usually receiving around 2000 televotes and the runner-up receiving 1500-2000 votes. A one-vote-per-song-per-phone rule was also used. This method was used up until the semi-finals of ISC 7.

Following Saint Eva & Lepland's semi-final votes being announced, there was much controversy regarding perceived 'friendly' voting. Therefore, a new system was implemented to determine Saint Eva & Lepland's points, which would give the televoting and jury equal share. The ten jury members would be asked to give each song a score out of 10, and the total of all jurors would be that song's jury score. The televoting score would be more complicated; songs receiving at least 2000 votes would receive 100 televoting points; songs that failed to reach 2000 votes would receive a percentage score rounded to the nearest whole number (for example, a song that got 1000 votes would receive 50 televoting points). The televoting and jury points would be totaled to determine which songs received the most points from Saint Eva & Lepland.

SealTV introduced a new voting system, in which viewers could vote both for songs and against songs. Following controversy regarding high points given to Kosma in ISC 15 and ISC 16, bringing in accusations of vote rigging, SealTV adopted the system of the public and jury's full rankings being combined to determine the points given, while still allowing viewers to vote for and against songs.
