Eurovision World Cup: Denmark vs Germany

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 getting closer and closer to the final match in our Eurovision World Cup with today marking the first day of the semi-finals. Only four teams remain, with Denmark and Germany competing today. The winner of this match will continue to the Final, however the competition is not over for the loser of this match, as they will go on to compete again in the Third Place match later in the week!

Today’s competitors:

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:

Throughout Germany’s lengthy history at Eurovision, they have only won the contest twice, with the first win in 1982 with Nicole, and the latest being Lena’s 2010 win with her song Satellite. However since there has been more than one win, we have decided that it will be Lena who will be representing Germany at this Eurovision World Cup! Lena won the competition with a total of 246 points.

Vote for your winner here:

Voting is now closed! Congratulations to Denmark who are now in the Eurovision World Cup FINAL! It was a close race, with only one vote between winning and losing, but not all is lost for Germany, who we will see again later this week in the Third Place match!
