Winning song Ukraine
"Stefania"
2021 ← Eurovision Song Contest → 2023

Forty countries participated in the contest, with Armenia and Montenegro returning after their absences from the previous edition. Russia had originally planned to participate, but was excluded due to its invasion of Ukraine.

The winner was Ukraine with the song "Stefania", performed by Kalush Orchestra and written by the group's members Ihor Didenchuk, Oleh Psiuk, Tymofii Muzychuk and Vitalii Duzhyk, along with Ivan Klimenko. Ukraine's 439 points received from the televote in the final are the most televoting points received in the contest's history to date, making "Stefania" the first song sung entirely in Ukrainian and the first song with hip-hop elements to win the contest.[1] The United Kingdom, Spain, Sweden and Serbia rounded out the top five, with the United Kingdom and Spain achieving their best results since 1998 and 1995 respectively, and Serbia achieving its best result since 2012. This was the second year in succession, after a previous gap of 26 years, that the top three songs were all sung in languages native to their respective countries. It was also a record-extending sixteenth time that the United Kingdom finished in second place. Italy finished in sixth place, thereby achieving the best result for a host country since 2016.

The EBU reported that the contest had a television audience of 161 million viewers in 34 European markets, a decrease of 22 million viewers from the previous edition, however, it is noted that this is due to the exclusion of Russia and the lack of audience figures from Ukraine, with the overall figures up by 7 million viewers in a comparable market from 2021. An increase of three percent in the 15–24 year old age range was also reported.[2] A total of 18 million viewers watched the contest online on YouTube and TikTok.[3]

The 2022 contest took place in Turin, Italy, following the country's victory at the 2021 edition with the song "Zitti e buoni", performed by Måneskin. It was the third time that Italy had hosted the contest, having previously done so for the 1965 and 1991 contests, held in Naples and Rome respectively. The selected venue was the 13,300-seat PalaOlimpico, a multi-purpose indoor arena located in the Santa Rita district, which serves as a venue for events including concerts, exhibitions, trade fairs, conferences, and sports (mainly those requiring an ice rink, such as ice hockey and curling). PalaOlimpico had previously hosted the ice hockey events at the 2006 Winter Olympics, and the opening ceremonies of the 2007 Winter Universiade and will host the same event in 2025.[4][5]

The venue returned to its full capacity for the contest, after the previous edition in Rotterdam saw a limited audience of 3,500 people as a precaution against the COVID-19 pandemic.[6] However, the audience was required to wear masks at all times inside the venue, unlike in Rotterdam where mask-wearing was not enforced whenever the audience was seated.[7][8][9] Nearly all COVID-19 prevention measures for the contest were dropped by 11 May 2022, with testing only required whenever symptoms were exhibited.[10]

In addition to the main venue, the host city also organised side events in tandem with the contest. The Eurovision Village was the official Eurovision Song Contest fan and sponsors area during the event weeks, where it was possible to watch performances by contest participants and local artists, as well as the live shows broadcast from the main venue. It was located at Parco del Valentino and open from 7 to 14 May 2022.[11][12] The EuroClub, which took place across ten different locations in Turin, hosted the official after-parties and private performances by contest participants. Unlike in previous years, access to the EuroClub was not restricted to accredited fans, delegates and press.[13][14] The "Turquoise Carpet" and Opening Ceremony events, where the contestants and their delegations were presented before the accredited press and fans, took place at the Palace of Venaria on 8 May 2022.[15][16]

Bidding phase

Between 23 and 28 May 2021, many cities across Italy expressed interest in hosting the contest. Representatives from the cities of Bologna, Milan, Pesaro, Naples and Turin voiced their interest,[17][18][19] as well as the Mayor of Reggio Emilia, Luca Vecchi, who hoped to host the contest in the new RCF Arena, the largest open-air arena in Europe with a capacity of 100,000 spectators.[20] The mayors of Rome, Rimini and Florence soon after also expressed interest in hosting the contest[21][22][23] and were joined by Sanremo, Verona and Bari.[23][24][25] Marco Di Maio [it], member of the Italian Chamber of Deputies, also suggested that if Rimini were to host the contest, it should be a co-production with San Marino RTV.[26]

Host broadcaster RAI launched the bidding process on 7 July 2021.[27][28] In the first phase of this process, any interested cities were to present their bid through certified email by 12 July, after which RAI and the EBU would proceed to send all of them a bid book with more detailed requirements for the cities to submit their plans for review.[29]

On 9 July 2021, the city of Turin officially announced its bid.[30] On the same day, the city of Pesaro did the same, proposing the Vitrifrigo Arena as a possible venue to host the event.[31] They were followed by Bologna and Jesolo on 12 July,[32][33] and Rimini and Bertinoro (jointly with Forlì and Cesena) on 13 July.[34][35] On 13 July, RAI announced that 17 cities had submitted their bid for hosting the contest and would be provided the following day with the bid books. They had until 4 August to draft and submit their detailed plans, which 11 cities did.[36] On 24 August, it was reported that Bologna, Milan, Pesaro, Rimini and Turin would be the cities left in the running to host the contest.[37]

The choice among them was meant to be announced by the end of August;[38][39] however, this did not happen, and in mid-September Stefano Coletta [it], director of Rai 1, stated that the selection was behind time to ensure "transparency and precision".[40] On 8 October 2021, the EBU and RAI announced Turin as the host city, with the PalaOlimpico as the chosen venue for the contest.[4][41]

Production

The Eurovision Song Contest 2022 was produced by the Italian public broadcaster Radiotelevisione italiana (RAI). The Italian government allocated around 1.5 million as part of the budget needed to host the event, while the municipality of Turin and the regional government of Piedmont contributed around €10 million in total.[72][73] Claudio Fasulo [it] and Simona Martorelli served as executive producers,[74] Cristian Biondani [it] and Duccio Forzano [it] served as directors of the three live shows,[75][76] Claudio Santucci served as head of show,[77] and Emanuele Cristofoli served as artistic director for the opening and interval acts.[78][79]

Visual design

The theme art and slogan for the contest, "The Sound of Beauty", was unveiled on 21 January 2022. Designed by Rome-based studio Flopicco, the artwork was built around the symmetrical structure and patterns of cymatics to convey the visual properties of sound, which also reflects Italian garden design, while the typography was inspired by early-20th century Italian poster art; the colours were drawn from those of the Italian flag.[80][81]

Presenters

Alessandro Cattelan, Laura Pausini and Mika, presenters of the 2022 contest

Television presenter Alessandro Cattelan and singers Laura Pausini and Mika were the presenters of the 2022 contest. They had already been named as likely hosts by Italian news agency Adnkronos and TV magazine TV Sorrisi e Canzoni; and were officially confirmed during the second night of the Sanremo Music Festival 2022 on 2 February, after appearing on that show as special guests.[82][83][84]

The "Turquoise Carpet" and Opening Ceremony events were hosted by Gabriele Corsi [it], Carolina Di Domenico, Mario Acampa [it] and Laura Carusino [it].[85][86] Acampa, Carusino and Di Domenico also moderated the contest's press conferences.[87][88]

Stage design

 
Stage and green room in the arena

The stage design for the 2022 contest was revealed on 18 February 2022.[89] Designed by Rome-based stage designer Francesca Montinaro [it] and dubbed "The Sun Within", the stage design was based around the movements and light of a kinetic sun, with the intended ability to showcase theatrical motion. The design also featured a working water cascade and a green room modelled after an Italian garden.[90][91] Montinaro had previous experience in stage design, having done so for the Sanremo Music Festival in 2013 and 2019.[92] This marked the first time since 2016 that German stage designer Florian Wieder [de] did not design the Eurovision stage.[93][94]

Opening and interval acts

On 30 April 2022, the EBU released information about the opening and interval acts.[95]

The first semi-final was opened by a performance showcasing Italian ingenuity and creativity, accompanied by the official anthem of the contest, "The Sound of Beauty", performed by Sherol Dos Santos,[96][97] while the interval featured a medley of "Horizon in Your Eyes", "Satisfaction" and "Golden Nights [it]" performed by Dardust, Benny Benassi and Sophie and the Giants with conductor Sylvia Catasta,[98][99] a brief homage to Raffaella Carrà performed by the contest presenters,[100] and Diodato performing "Fai rumore".[101]

 
Il Volo performed "Grande amore" during the interval of the second semi-final.

The second semi-final was opened by "The Italian Way", an act built around Italian improvisation performed by co-presenter Alessandro Cattelan,[102] while the interval featured a medley of "Fragile" and "People Have the Power" performed by co-presenters Laura Pausini and Mika,[103] and Il Volo performing a new version of "Grande amore".[b][106]

The final was opened by the traditional flag parade, introducing all twenty-five finalists, accompanied by the Rockin' 1000 performing “Give Peace a Chance” and co-presenter Laura Pausini performing a medley of "Benvenuto", "Io canto", "La solitudine", "Le cose che vivi" and "Scatola [it]".[107] The interval acts included Måneskin performing their new single "Supermodel" and “If I Can Dream”,[108][107] Gigliola Cinquetti performing her winning song "Non ho l'età",[109] and co-presenter Mika performing a medley of "Love Today", "Grace Kelly", his new single "Yo Yo" and "Happy Ending".[110] Italian astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti also appeared in a pre-recorded message from the International Space Station.[111]

Format

Entries

For the second year in a row, delegations had the option to use pre-recorded backing vocals, though each delegation could still use backing singers – whether on or off stage – or a combination of live and recorded backing vocals. However, all lead vocals performing the melody of the song must still be live.[112][113] The EBU also required all national broadcasters to create a 'live-on-tape' backup recording prior to the contest which could be used if a participant was unable to travel to Turin, or subjected to quarantine on arrival.[114][115][116][117] The 2022 contest also saw a tightening of the rules around song eligibility. Previously, the rules stated that the competing songs must not have been commercially released prior to 1 September of the previous year, now, a song may be ineligible to compete if it has been released to the public in any way, including live performances, before 1 September of the previous year. Enforcement of the rule was subject to the responsibility of the participating broadcasters.[118]

With all participating artists having performed live in Turin, the majority of the 'live-on-tape' performances were released on the contest's official YouTube channel over a period of ten days, from 14 to 23 June 2022.[119] Australia, Azerbaijan, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Georgia, Italy, Moldova, Netherlands, Norway, Sweden and United Kingdom opted not to release their performances, while Ukraine was exempted from the obligation to record theirs and Armenia removed theirs minutes after its release for unknown reasons.[120] Despite Montenegro not releasing their performance to the contest's official channel, it was nonetheless made available on the channel of the country's representative Vladana.[121]

The 2022 contest was the first edition to not feature any competing song with lyrics in French.[122]

Semi-final allocation draw

 
Palazzo Madama, host venue for the allocation draw of the 2022 contest

The draw to determine the participating countries' semi-finals took place on 25 January 2022 at 12:00 CET, at Palazzo Madama.[123][124] The thirty-six semi-finalists were divided over six pots, based on historical voting patterns as calculated by the contest's official televoting partner Digame. The purpose of drawing from different pots was to reduce the chance of "bloc voting" and to increase suspense in the semi-finals. The draw also determined which semi-final each of the five automatic qualifiers – "Big Five" countries France, Germany, Italy, Spain and the United Kingdom – would broadcast and vote in. The ceremony was hosted by Carolina Di Domenico and Mario Acampa, with Acampa replacing Gabriele Corsi who tested positive for COVID-19.[125] It included the passing of the host city insignia from Ahmed Aboutaleb, the mayor of previous host city Rotterdam, to Stefano Lo Russo, the mayor of Turin.

Postcards

The "postcards" were 40-second video introductions shown on television whilst the stage is being prepared for the next contestant to perform their entry. Filmed between February and April, and directed by Matteo Lanzi, the 2022 postcards were based on the "Sound of Beauty" theme of the contest.[126][127] Guided by a drone named "Leo", each postcard showcased a different locale in Italy adorned by pictures and various artistic elements related to the acts, while the participating artists themselves appeared via footage superimposed through chroma keying.[128][129][130] The following locations were used for each participating country:[131][132]

The EBU initially announced on 20 October 2021 that 41 countries would participate in the 2022 contest. The list included all countries that participated in the 2021 contest, along with Armenia and Montenegro, both of which had last taken part in 2019 (Armenia was also set to compete in the cancelled 2020 edition).[74] On 25 February 2022, the EBU announced that Russia was excluded from the contest due to the 2022 Russian invasion of Ukraine, thereby reducing the number of participating countries to 40.[133]

Other countries

Eligibility for potential participation in the Eurovision Song Contest requires a national broadcaster with active EBU membership that would be able to broadcast the contest via the Eurovision network. The EBU issued an invitation to participate in the contest to all active members. Associate member Australia did not need an invitation for the 2022 contest, as it had previously been granted permission to participate at least until 2023.[152]

Active EBU members

Non-EBU members

  •   Belarus – On 28 May 2021, the EBU Executive Board agreed to suspend the membership of Belarusian broadcaster BTRC as a result of its use by the Belarusian government as a propaganda tool. The broadcaster was given two weeks to respond before the suspension came into effect, but did not do so publicly.[158] BTRC was expelled from the EBU on 1 July for a period of three years, therefore losing the rights to broadcast and participate in any Eurovision event until 1 July 2024;[159] the broadcaster subsequently released a statement affirming that they would not be supporting Belarus' participation in upcoming years, including 2022.[160][161] Belarus last took part in 2019, having intended to compete in the cancelled 2020 contest and having been disqualified from the 2021 contest.
  •   Liechtenstein – Liechtensteiner broadcaster 1 FL TV did not debut in the 2022 contest due to the high costs of participation. The broadcaster had attempted to become an EBU member in the past but halted its plans when its director, Peter Kölbel, unexpectedly died. It would also need the backing of the Liechtenstein government to be able to carry the cost of becoming an EBU member and paying the participation fee for the contest.[162]
  •   Russia – Despite initially appearing on the list of participants, on 25 February 2022, following the 2022 Russian invasion of Ukraine and increasing protests from other participating countries, the EBU announced that Russia was excluded from the 2022 contest.[133] The following day, all EBU members from Russia, including VGTRK and Channel One, announced their withdrawal from the union; however, the EBU itself had yet to receive a confirmation.[163][164] On 1 March, a further statement from the EBU announced that it had suspended its Russian members from its governance structures.[165] On 26 May, the EBU made effective the suspension of its Russian members, causing Russia to indefinitely lose broadcasting and participation rights for future Eurovision events.[166][167]

Broadcasts

All participating broadcasters may choose to have on-site or remote commentators providing an insight about the show and voting information to their local audience. While they must broadcast at least the semi-final they are voting in and the final, most broadcasters air all three shows with different programming plans. Similarly, some non-participating broadcasters may still want to air the contest.

The European Broadcasting Union provided international live streams of both semi-finals and the final through their official YouTube channel with no commentary, and through their official TikTok channel with an additional backstage feed.[168] The YouTube live streams were geo-blocked to viewers in the Czech Republic, Greece, United Kingdom and the United States. After the live broadcasts, all three shows were made available for every country listed above except the United States.[169]

For the first time in the contest's history, RAI trialled the broadcasts of the event in 4K UHD.[170][171] The contest was aired on Rai 4K [it] as an upscaled version of the HD feed, as RAI had yet to be fully equipped for broadcast of native 4K content.[172]
