Timeline

◄ Valletta 8 Eurovision Heart Cork 10 ►

Universong 9, the 9th edition of the Universong Contest, travelled for the very third time to The Netherlands, and for the second time to the city of The Hague, this time after the winning of Future Presidents with the song "Love don't pay the bill$" on the previous edition held in Valletta, Malta. The contest was held in late 2010.

22 countries competed in this edition, without the appearance of debuting countries for the first time, but with the return of Albania, Finland and Serbia.

Ireland got its first Universong winning thanks to the song "Zombie" by the band The Cranberries, collecting a total of 120 points. This would be the only winning for Ireland until USC 83, when this country won again with Markus Feehily, setting a record for the longest gap between winnings for a same country. Second place was for United States with the song "Bad romance" by the then emerging superstar Lady Gaga, earning 104 points. Scotland, with the song "Suddenly I see" by KT Tunstall, won third place, also with 104 points. This is the first time three English-speaking countries share the top 3 positions, with songs in English, respectively. Serbia and Albania won fourth and fifth places.
