Eurovision World Cup: Netherlands vs Montenegro

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.

We are up to Day 15 of our Eurovision World Cup, and today is a special day in the schedule as it’s the final day of the Group stage. We have four matches today, and these are the matches from Group G and Group H. Once we conclude these matches, we will know all of the nations continuing to the next stage of the competition! This match is between the Netherlands and Montenegro!

Today’s competitors:

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.

Montenegro made their independent debut at Eurovision in 2007, and it’s fairly safe to say that the nation certainly didn’t make waves at the contest. More often than not, Montenegro fails to qualify to the final, with some entries coming close to qualification, while others struggling to get off the bottom places on the results table. Only two entries have qualified, and representing Montenegro in the Eurovision World Cup is the best placing entry, which is Adio by Knez which finished in 13th place!
