Eurovision World Cup: Norway vs Finland

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 6 of the World Cup, and we’re continuing the week with 2 matches from Group H and we are back to the start with a match from Group A. This match is between two Scandinavian nations, Norway and Finland, so let’s see who is representing the competitors!

Today’s Competitors:

Norway first got involved with Eurovision in 1960, and have participated in all but two contest since their debut. Interestingly, Norway has the record for the most last places and the most nul points, but despite that, they have had some success throughout the years. They have won the contest three times now, and representing the nation in our Eurovision World Cup is the most recent winner, Alexander Rybak with Fairytale!

Finland has been a mixed bag at Eurovision, even since their debut in 1961. Finland have finished in last place numerous times, and more often than not have finished outside the Top 10. It took the nation over 40 years to score their first (and only) win at the contest so far! It comes as no surprise that Lordi will be representing Finland with their winning entry Hard Rock Hallelujah.

Voting is now closed! Congratulations to Norway who have won this match!
