The Netherlands were present at the Eurovision Song Contest 1986, held in Bergen, Norway, after opting out of the previous year's contest in Gothenburg, Sweden.

The Dutch national final to select their entry, the Nationaal Songfestival '86, was held on 1 April at the Theater De Flint in Amersfoort, and was hosted by the pianist and television host Pim Jacobs. Twelve regional juries across the Netherlands selected the winning song.

The winning entry was "Alles heeft een ritme," performed by the teenage girl group Frizzle Sizzle. The entry was composed by Peter Schön and Rob Ten Bokum, and the lyrics were written by Schön.

At Eurovision

Frizzle Sizzle performed seventh on the night of the contest, following Iceland and preceding Turkey. By the time the song got to Bergen, it was simply credited as "Alles heeft ritme," changing the meaning slightly to "everything has rhythm," from the former "everything has a rhythm."

At the close of the voting the song had received 40 points, placing 13th in a field of 20 competing countries. This placing was identical to the previous time the Netherlands had competed in Eurovision, in 1984.
