Timeline

◄ Budapest 52 Eurovision Heart Turku 54 ►

Universong 53 was the 53rd staging of the Universong Contest, held from May 28th to June 14th, 2013, in Vilnius, Lithuania. This was the first time Lithuania held the USC, after the winning of the song "Not afraid" by GJan the previous edition in Budapest, Hungary.

For the second time, Finland won the Universong Contest, thanks to the song "Eva" by Jippu. After a very low beginning, Finland began gathering points little by little. So, there was no clarity about who were going to win. The struggle in the first stages was between Ellie Goulding representing England (who would later win USC 57), and Daft Punk representing France (who would compete with their later worldwide super-hit "Get lucky"), being later a runaway winning from France, after the incorporation of Finland in the struggle. Eventually. both Finland and France closed the top 2, with a 2-point difference between both countries (146 points for the winner, and 144 for the runner-up), in an exciting voting sequence that was decided in the very last vote. Australia won third place with "Timeless" by Reece Mastin, who gathered a total of 133 points, fairly far enough behind the top 2, but closely above the remainder of the top 5, who was completed by the aforementioned Ellie Goulding and Pablo Alborán, representing Spain.
