For the duration of the actual World Cup, some of the best Eurovision artists old and new will be battling it out in a series of matches that mirror the World Cup itself. By the end, we will know the first winner of our Eurovision World Cup!
On each competition day of the World Cup, all of the matches for that day will be posted here on Eurovision Union. For a full 24 hours, a poll will be open for each match and it will be up to you to pick which of the representative songs will win the match.
It is Day 5 of the World Cup, and we’re starting the week with 3 matches from Group F and G. This match is between neighbours Belgium and The Netherlands! Let’s see who is competing for the nations!
Belgium has participated at Eurovision an incredible 60 times, and was one of the seven nations to compete in the debut year of Eurovision back in 1956. Incredibly, the nation has won the competition only once, but at least that didn’t make things complicated for our Eurovision World Cup! Representing Belgium is Sandra Kim with her winning song J’aime la vie, which won the contest in 1986.
The Netherlands is one of the original participants of Eurovision, and quite early on found considerable success. They scored their first of four wins in 1957 with Corry Brokken, and then had three Eurovision wins with their most recent in 1975. With four options for the Eurovision World Cup representative, we decided on a favourite of ours, which is Lenny Kuhr with De Troubadour which was one of four winners which tied in 1969.
