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 starting with The United Kingdom and The Netherlands! Recap the entries and vote for your winner!
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.
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.
