History[edit | edit source]

Katy Perry, first Penislandic participant in ISC

Pen Island made their debut in the 17th Edition of the Internatia Song Contest.

In ISC 17 Pen Island entered as debutants after surviving all the waiting in the Waiting List. They chose Katy Perry to represent Pen Island with her hit "Unconditionally". That guaranteed their debut qualification as they placed 7th in semi with 70 points and that was enough to make it. In the final Pen Island scored 94 points and reached 15th place.

The edition after, Pen Island held their first national final ever including "Nebo" by Max Barskih, which went to ISC next edition. The winner of national final was Faydee ft. Lazy-J and their song "Laugh 'Till You Cry". Unfortunately, Pen Island failed to qualify by placing 25th (second last) with just 11 points.

Pen Island held yet another national final for ISC 19 consisting just of 2 songs, and Jaymes Young's "Stardust" won the "duel". Pen Island was accused of being unfair because this country "voted in Semi Final 2 a lot of minutes after deadline" and qualified afterwards. Tjärsklanjska and Sockistan became outraged because of this unjustice because they failed to qualify to the final by just a couple of points. Had Pen Island been disqualified for not voting, Tjärsklanjska would've qualified instead.

Next edition, which was ISC 20, Pen Island sent Dawid Kwiatkowski with "Na Zawsze" and guaranteed the outrage of some countries because, as Ova Anova explained, it was just "trying to invent poor man's Bieber". This didn't made Penislandic result better - they placed 24th in the semi with just 18 points and failed to qualify.

For ISC 21 Pen Island sent James Arthur with "Recovery", which came close to qualify, but that didn't upset Penislandians much after it was revealed that Hanzyuki, who reached 12th place in semifinal 1 with just one point ahead Pen Island, gave Pen Island their 12 points.

For ISC 22 Pen Island sent Aram MP3 with "If I Tried". The song qualified but Pen Island reached bottom 3 placing in final. Next edition Adham Nabulsi and "Ossetna Kholset" went to represent Pen Island but unfortunately failed to vote. Had Pen Island voted, they'd either qualify or end up borderline and miss the final.

Pen Island sent Wyke van Weelden to ISC 24 with "World Of Blue" and almost qualified once again, but according to TV, this song qualified the whole time until last set of votes came in. The following edition The Pierces were sent for the 3rd time in ISC with "Kings" and made Pen Island proud because they won that edition, therefore ensuring best Penislandic result ever in ISC and allowing Pen Island to host Internatia Song Contest 27.

The edition before Pen Island's hosting saw fresh new star on the music scene - Kendji Girac - as Penislandic participant which had great chances to qualify with his new uptempo tune called "Color Gitano". Sadly, it did not qualify because PEEN failed to submit votes yet again.

Edition 27 saw a Pen Islandic hosting with some hiccups, but Pen Island managed to pull it off, the joy of hosting totally overshadowing the 26th place on home soil. The subsequent edition Pen Island failed to qualify to the grand final co-hosted by Chruno and Bubblique with Ayneed's cover of "Kiss Kiss".

Pen Island has seen very mixed results since, making the final on a few occasions, with Aminata's 9th place in ISC 36 as a highlight.
