V made its debut in the 8th Edition of the Outernatia Song Contest and has taken part in every edition since. The country had previously voted in OSC 7 as part of the international jury.

V has alternated between a national final (Melodi Grand V) and internal selection. As per the rules of selection implemented by national broadcaster VTV, every single song entered by V to the Outernatia Song Contest must begin with the letter "V".

The best result for the country is 3rd place, achieved three times: in the 9th edition of the contest with "Vultures" by Vaults, in the 14th edition with "Vlasy" by Fallgrapp and in the 17th edition with "Verbovaya doschechka" by Illaria.

V is known for its eccentric voting patterns, mostly notably in OSC 11 when they gave a total of 6 points to the entire top ten.
