Universong 49 was the 49th staging of the Universong Contest, held in Yerevan, Armenia, from January 29th to February 16th, 2013. This was Armenia's first - and only so far - staging of the Universong Contest, that occured after the winning of Sirusho, with the song "PreGomesh" the previous edition in Annaba, Algeria.

Iceland won its third Universong title, thanks to the song "In the silence", by Greta Salome, and a total of 165 points. Greta Salome, having previously won USC 43 in Vaduz, Liechtenstein, with the song "Everywhere around me", became the second USC double champion, by virtue of having won Universong twice. The first USC double champions were Romania's Edward Maya and Vika Jigulina (winners of USC 03 in Linz, Austria and USC 21 in Wellington, New Zealand).

22 points behind Iceland, Finland won second place with the song "Cradled in love" by Poets of the Fall. In third place, Russia won that place for the second edition in a row, this time with "Gun" by Serebro, earning a total of 135 points. The top 5 was completed with the representatives of Mexico and the Faroe Islands.
