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’s now Day 8 of the Eurovision World Cup, and today there will be a total of three matches featuring nations from both Group C and Group D. The next match is between France and Latvia, so let’s get into it!
France has competed at Eurovision an incredible 61 times, and has won the contest a total of five times. Their first win was in 1958, and their most recent was in 1977, so we had a bit of choice as to who would represent France at the Eurovision World Cup! In the end, we picked our favourite which is Frida Boccara with Un jour, en enfant. Watch the performance below:
It only took three years until Latvia scored their first Eurovision win, and as you will remember it was Marie N who took out the trophy for Latvia with the song I Wanna. Latvia has not yet won again since the 2002 edition of the contest, but at least they have a win on the board! Watch the performance here:
