Universong 65 was the 65th edition of the Universong Contest, held in Sydney, Australia, after the winning of Jessica Mauboy the previous edition in Uppsala, Sweden, with the song "Never be the same". The contest was held between May 4th and May 22nd, 2014, being the first time that Australia hosts the contest.

After an exciting voting, Cyprus scored its second winning (the first since USC 33 in Istanbul, Turkey), with the song "Etsi kano ego", sang by Stella Kalli. Cyprus won with 176 points, with a 1-point margin to runner-up Catarina Pereira from Portugal. Closely, Adelén for Norway scored third place, with 8 points of difference with the winner and 7 points of differences with the runner-up. Closely behind, completing the top 5 were San Marino and Romania.

In the semifinals, two songs were withdrawn. The representatives of Lebanon, Nancy Ajram, with the song "Ma tegi hena"; and Belgium, 2Fabiola with the song "She's after my piano", were withdrawn from the first and second semifinals, respectively. Both songs would compete later in the Universong Contest. The Lebanese song would achieve 11th place in the USC 70 grand final, while the Belgian song competed in the first semifinal of USC 71.
