The United Kingdom debuted in the 1st edition of North Vision Song Contest.


United Kingdom is (by statistics) one of the most successful countries in NVSC, with eleven Top 10 finishes, including one win, two finishes in 2nd place and a finish in third place. Success came to the United Kingdom in North Vision Song Contest #06 with Chlöe Howl winning with her song "Rumour"

However, in the fourth edition, Joe Brooks finished in 15th place in the semi-final.

A good range of finishes happened for the UK, with Top 10 finishes in all competing events from NVSC 5 to NVSC 10.

Sadly in NVSC 11, the country failed to qualify for a second time. The country came back with a top-10 finish in NVSC 12 but in NVSC 13 they failed to qualify for a third time.

Alongside the success of Gabz, the United Kingdom has now won both Adult and Kids Editions of the North Vision Song Contest.
