Timeline

◄ San Juan 81 Eurovision Heart Thorshavn 83 ►

Universong 82 was the 82nd edition of the Universong Contest, held in Croatia for the fourth time. The chosen city was, this time, Split. Croatia hosted the USC after the winning in USC 81 of Nina Kraljic with the song "Zaljuljali smo svijet" in San Juan, Puerto Rico. It began on November 2nd and finished on November 22nd, 2015.

In a very hard edition, whose grand final became very surprising, with some of the previous favourites scoring less than expected, the Faroe Islands got its first winning - the second for an overseas territory of Denmark after the winning of Greenland in USC 78 in Tehran, Iran - thanks to the song "Circles" by Ludovico Einaudi and Greta Svabo Bech, collecting a total of 207 points. Second place was taken by Wales, represented by former USC champion Marina and the Diamonds with the song "I'm a ruin", collecting 40 points less than winners, with a total of 167. San Marino took the third place thanks to the song "The days" by Michele Bravi, collecting 150 points. The top 5 was completed by debuting Singapore in fourth place and Brazil in fifth place.
