| Universong 76|
"Stronger than difficulties"
25 March - 12 April 2015
Universong 76 was the 76th edition of the Universong Contest, beggining on March 25th and finishing on April 12th, 2015. This is the third time that Croatia helds the USC, and it's hosted by the capital city Zagreb for the second time, after it hosted USC 18.
Croatia was declared as host of this edition after winning USC 75 in Jerusalem, Israel with Luminize and "Kill it with love". The winning group tried to defend its title on home turf, reaching a respectable 7th position at home, with 118 points for the song "Get it back".
Monaco was declared winner of this edition with the song "Ma révolution", defended by French duo Cassandre, and earning 204 points in total. This is the Principality's first winning ever at Universong. Their runners-up were Germany (represented by Fahrenhaidt), Greece (represented by Marietta Fafouti and Gaultier), Liechtenstein (represented by band Beyond the Black) and Sweden (represented by Petra Marklund), respectively.
Also, winners Cassandre were nominated for the Non-English award, that they won for themselves as well. This is the first time the winner of any edition wins a special award, a fact that would be repeated twice more in the history of Universong so far (later on in USC 77 and USC 91).
