Timeline

◄ Newcastle 42 Eurovision Heart Reykjavik 44 ►

Universong 43 was the 43rd edition of the Universong Contest, held for the very first time in Vaduz, Principality of Liechtenstein, after the winning of Mandy Capristo with the song "The way I like it" the previous edition in Newcastle, England. USC 43 was held from August 25th to September 10th, 2012.

Iceland got its second Universong winning after its first one in USC 06 in Motala, Sweden. Greta Salome, with the song "Everywhere around me", got this accomplishment possible for the small European nation, collecting a total of 148 points, in a very closed race with runner-up Italy's Emma Marrone, representing this time the Vatican City with the song "Cercavo amore" (146 points) and third place Turkey's Atiye with the song "Bring it back" (145 points). The top 5 was completed by Norway's Katzenjammer, and Christopher and Molly Sandén, representing the Faroe Islands, scoring 141 and 139 points, respectively, becoming this Universong one of the closest editions ever.

That was the first edition than a player participated as an artist to represent it's country (Tara Wills was the artist. Send by hph01 (not herself)).
