Timeline

01 - Eurovision Heart - 03

Welcome to the second edition of the International World Music Contest! After Gotye won the first edition, this contest will be held in AB in Brussels. Gotye and Belgium Belgium will be hosting this edition. Denmark, Germany and Spain have withdrawn, but New Zealand New Zealand, Sweden Sweden and the United Kingdom United Kingdom have debuted into the contest in their places.

Turkey Turkey have also debuted but is currently a jury, not a participant. This is the first time a country joined to be a jury. Also, ABBA will join for Sweden and the Pet Shop Boys will join for the United Kingdom.

The winner was privately announced on September 28, 2013 as both Kate Miller-Heidke's "Sarah" and Pet Shop Boys's "West End Girls" both won the contest. Their victories both prove that the contest does not allow the tie-break rules. Australia Australia and the United Kingdom United Kingdom achieved first place, while France France, New Zealand New Zealand and Sweden Sweden remained, achieving their second place. Belgium Belgium and Italy Italy have not achieved any point and are to withdraw next edition. Spain Spain will return and Turkey Turkey will debut next edition in withdrawal of Belgium and Italy.
