The 66th Eurovision Song Contest ends tonight. 25 songs will compete, and after 4 hours of music, performance, entertainment and excitement, we know the winner of the Eurovision 2022 Song Contest.
Show starts at 21:00 CESTlive from the Pala Olimpico Arena in Turin, Italy and can be streamed on Youtube. The hosts are Mica, Laura Bossini and Alessandro Cattelan. The operating order was determined by the Italian producer RAI based on the withdrawal of the assignment.
Eligible countries are:
Eurovision 2022 Grand Final Squad
Opening: The Voice of Peace, Laura Bossini, Flag Parade
If you were not physically present in Turin, you are now. This is how the Eurovision 2022 Grand Final begins: on the roads of the host city. There are a lot of people on the streets, walking together and clapping. Someone is playing the guitar and playing the drums. People start singing to evoke peace, and in case you miss it, you can even read it on someone’s sunglasses.
We are now inside the Pala Olimpico Square where we see Mica and Alessandro Cattelan join the movement to the tunes of John Lennon and Yoko Ono’s 1969 universal anthem for peace, “Bed-ins for Peace”.
It’s Laura Bussini time. The Italian legend is also responsible for the grand finale opening of the show as she presents a variety of some of her songs (“Lo Canto”, “La Solitudine”) and in each song there is a new outfit. Expect to see them in orange, white, blue, yellow, and black. You will be in a fun place with the number of dancers, productions and fireworks.
We’re ready for the flag rally: there are dancers with glow sticks and rainbows behind the black structure. The rainbow gives a place for blasts of sounds with the colors of each country’s flag. On the podium there are drawings with the name of the country.
During the flag parade, there are two moments of respite. The first happens after Spain. The dancers are in the center of the stage with their light-up sticks, which will also be colored in the colors of each country’s flag. The second half takes place after Sweden.
Shortly thereafter, he provided voice for hosts: Laura Pausini, Alessandro Cattelan, and Mika.
The basics have been introduced and translated into French and it’s time…
Let’s start the Eurovision 2022 Grand Final!
After song number 8 (Armenia), the first evening commercial holiday takes place.
For viewers who don’t have commercials, we see Laura Pausini, now in a purple dress, and Mica talking about the hard work that went into getting there so far. A clip of one of the best moments of the semi-finals was broadcast. In it, every entry (including those that didn’t qualify) has a moment to shine.
After song number 16 (Belgium), the second trade break occurs.
The three hosts are reunited and used their time to promote the official CD and DVD of the Eurovision Song Contest 2022. After some fun jokes, a new video follows the best moments of the second semi-final that took place last Thursday.
After song #21 (Australia), it was time to buy time as Laura Pausini sang a cappella version of “Volare” (Italy 1958), and soon won the support of the audience in the arena.
Interval works: Italian Gestures, Måneskin, Gigliola Cinquetti, Mika
The three presenters return to the main stage to explain the voting rules and hurry to open the voting:
Europe! Start voting now!
The first 25 performance summaries are shown, followed by the first interlude of the evening.
It’s a dance segment based on Italian gestures just as important as speaking Italian according to Mika who says he already knows these gestures even before speaking the language. The trio offers a few of these and a dance crew invades the stage for an inspired routine.
This is also the motto of raising awareness of sign language. The hosts teach the audience and viewers at home the sign of love and after watching a quick video clip from the International Space Station.
Måneskin, last year’s Eurovision Song Contest winners, is the next cut-off chapter.
The band is performing their new single “Supermodel” for the first time, and Alessandro interviewed her shortly and asked about her experience with model maker Max Martin. Although they won Eurovision last year with the song “Zitti E Buoni,” the band will not sing the song.
We head into the green room with Mika, who reminds viewers to vote. A second feed is shown for the night and followed by Alessandro who appears to be somewhere in space promoting the Eurovision app and official hashtags.
Laura Pausini is now with us to present Gigliola Cinquetti, Italy’s first winner of the Eurovision Song Contest. The Italian legend performs her winning song in 1964, “Non Ho L’étà”.
It’s time for another “Eurovision Confidential” chapter. This time around, Eurovision’s voice is judging the fashion choices of some of the previous acts including Nonstop (Portugal 2006) and Milan Stanković (Serbia 2010) among others.
There is still time to do another break. It’s a Mika who performs a variety of some of his biggest hits like “Grace Kelly” or “Love Today” with mass production. The Lebanese American will also release his new song “You Yo”.
The third and final conclusion follows and it’s time…
Europe and Australia! Stop voting now!
