The Eurovision Song Contest 2013 was the 58th Eurovision Song Contest since 1956. The contest took place in Malmö, Sweden, following Loreen's win in the 2012 contest with the song Euphoria. It was the fifth time that Sweden had hosted the contest, the last time being in 2000 in the capital, Stockholm.  Additionally, it was the second time Malmö hosted the contest, previously being the host city in 1992.  The host for the contest was Petra Mede, who was the first solo presenter since Mary Kennedy in 1995. The 2013 Contest is the longest in Eurovision history, with the Grand Final lasting 3 hours and 30 minutes.

Compared to previous contests, rather than focusing on promoting its own country, Sweden chose to lay focus on the artists and their respective countries. The postcards presented before every song which have traditionally been used to show the host country's nature, culture and social life, were changed to show the typical everyday life of each individual artist in their home countries scattered around Europe, with their country's flag in the shape of a butterfly.

The winner for 2013 was Denmark with the song Only Teardrops sung by Emmelie de Forest, which scored 281 points, beating Farid Mammadov from Azerbaijan with a margin of 47 points. This makes it the second time that Denmark won on Swedish ground, the last time being in 2000 with the Olsen Brothers. But unlike 2000, Denmark had gone into the 2013 contest as the heavy favorite.

Ukraine finished in third place and Norway in fourth. Out of the countries with the Big Five status, only Italy managed to finish in the top ten, coming seventh. The Netherlands finished ninth in their first participation in a final since 2004. A reported 170 million people watched both the semifinals and final of the 2013 edition. For the first time since 1985, no country of former Yugoslavia participated in the final of the Eurovision Song Contest.
