Eurovision World Cup: Greece 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’s Day 11 of our Eurovision World Cup, and much like the previous days, today we’ll be seeing three matches. Today the matches are between nations in Group G and Group F, and we are continuing with Greece and Finland! Recap the entries and vote for your winner!

Today’s competitors:

Greece has been competing at Eurovision for many years, having made their debut in 1974. Since then they have had mixed results, but a fair few Top 10 finishes throughout the years. They really found their groove in the 2000’s where they finished in 3rd place a few times, plus they won the contest! They have won only once which was in 2005 with Helena Paparizou and her song My Number One, which is representing Greece in our Eurovision World Cup.

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.

Vote for your winner here:

Voting is now closed! We had a tie breaker take place on Twitter, and Finland is the winner of this match! Congratulations!
