Myhre made her first appearance in the Norwegian heats for the Eurovision Song Contest 1964 with the song "God gammel firkantet vals" which the juries placed second. She also participated in 1966, this time with two songs, "Lørdagstripp" which was placed fourth and "Vims" which came fifth.

Myhre represented Germany in the Eurovision Song Contest 1968 with the song "Ein Hoch der Liebe" where she placed sixth. It would be another fifteen years before she attempted Eurovision again and did so via the German national heat, singing "Wir beide gegen den Wind" with her son. In the same year (1983) she was one of Jahn Teigen's chorus girls in the Norwegian final. When Teigen won, the potential prospect of singing both for Norway and for Germany became too much and she was replaced by Anita Skorgan in the international final in Munich. In 1992 she took the third place in the Norwegian selection with "Du skal få din dag i morgen". She participated in the Norwegian selection again for the Eurovision Song Contest 2009 in Moscow, Russia. Wenche performed the song "Alt har en mening nå" in the second semi-final on Saturday 31 January, but she was eliminated from the competition.
