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 Montenegro and The United Kingdom! Let’s see who is competing for the nations!
Montenegro made their independent debut at Eurovision in 2007, and it’s fairly safe to say that the nation certainly didn’t make waves at the contest. More often than not, Montenegro fails to qualify to the final, with some entries coming close to qualification, while others struggling to get off the bottom places on the results table. Only two entries have qualified, and representing Montenegro in the Eurovision World Cup is the best placing entry, which is Adio by Knez which finished in 13th place!
The United Kingdom have participated at Eurovision an incredible 61 times, after making their debut in 1957. The nation didn’t participate in 1958, but since then participated each and every year of the contest. They have been quite successful too, having come 2nd a record number of times with 15 runner-up’s. They have also won an impressive 5 times, which made it difficult to choose a Eurovision World Cup representative! In the end, we decided on the most recent entry which is Love Shine a Light performed by Katrina and the Waves.
