Timeline

◄ Paris 62 Eurovision Heart Upssala 64 ►

Universong 63 was the 63rd staging of the Universong Contest, held in Florence, Italy, from March 11th to March 29th, 2012. Italy hosted the USC for the sixth time, after the winning of Violetta Zironi the previous edition in Paris, France, with the song "Dimmi che non pasa".

The voting hds three favourites who began remarking themselves in the final stages: Kazakhstan, Germany and Sweden, the three of them becoming front runners. Eventually, Sweden got its fifth Universong title thanks to the song "Busy doin' nothin'" by Ace Wilder, by a 1-point difference with the runner-up Germany, who sent Oonagh with the song "Gäa" (This would be the first of four so far participations of Oonagh, one of them winning USC 68 in Barcelona-Vaduz, and the latest being in USC 90 in Madrid). Kazakhstan, in its debut, won third place thanks to the song "Rizamyn" by Keshyou, the highest placement for this country so far. Cyprus, represented by Michalis Hatziyiannis for the fourth time, and France, represented by Indila in her second participation after her win in USC 61, completed the top 5, while South Korea obtained its highest placement ever (6th place), thanks to Ailee.
