Universong 68 was the 68th edition of the Universong Contest, held between July 22nd and August 8th, 2014. For the second time in the contest's history, two cities hosted the event due to a tie on the previous edition in Melbourne, Australia, where Pastora Soler, with the song "Vive", representing Spain, and German singer Helene Fischer, with the song "Atemlos durch die Nacht", representing Liechtenstein, tied for first place with 213 points each, despite the overall winning went to Spain, since more countries voted for it. The three semifinals were hosted in Vaduz, Liechtenstein; while the grand final was held in Barcelona, Spain.

Germany won Universong for the very first time with the song "Orome", sang by Oonagh, totalling 245 points. Oonagh also competed in USC 63 in Florence, Italy, where she placed runner-up to eventual winner, Ace Wilder from Sweden, by just a 1-point difference. Runner-up was France, represented by Indila, with the song "S.O.S.". Indila won USC 61 in Los Angeles, California, U.S.A. with the song "Dernière danse"; and placed fifth in USC 63 in Florence, Italy (where she also competed with Oonagh) with the song "Tourner dans la vie". The group Bastille got third place for England with the song "Things we lost in the fire". Switzerland and Portugal completed the top 5, while favourites Monaco, Russia and Ecuador completed the top 10 together with Luxembourg and San Marino.
