Eurovision World Cup: France vs Denmark

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 13, and we are inching ever closer to knowing which two countries from each group will progress to the next round. For many of these countries, their third match in this round is make or break, and it’s up to you to decide which nations will continue! Today all the matches from Group C and D will take place! The first match today is between France and Denmark!

Today’s competitors:

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:

Denmark has a lengthy history at the contest, having first participated in 1957. Since then, they have won the contest no less than three times, in 1963, 2000 and 2013. Since we loved all three winning entries, it was difficult to choose the representative, however we have chosen Emmelie de Forest with Only Teardrops which is the most recent winner from Denmark. Listen to the song here:
