Universong 59 was the 59th staging of the Universong Contest, held from November 23rd to December 9th in Nokia, Finland, after the winning of Krista Siegfrids, representing Finland, with the song "Can you see me?", the previous edition in Leeds, England.

Sweden got its fourth winning ever, after having won USC 50 (special edition). Laleh took home the Universong title with the song "Colors", having collected a total of 187 points. With a 34-point margin, second place was for previous edition hosts England, with the song "Wings" by Birdy. Third place went to Canada, represented by Avril Lavigne and Chad Kroeger, with the song "Let me go". Portugal and Germany completed the top 5.

Belarus got its best result to date, by finishing sixth in the finals with the song "Muzyka" by Bianka. The best placement for Belarus up to that date was a seventh place in its debut in USC 31. On the other hand, this is the only edition where Papua New Guinea competed, reaching the finals, where it eventually got 11th place.
