Eurovision 2022: 41 countries joining the 66th contest in Turin!

Public broadcasters from 41 countries will take part in the Eurovision Song Contest when it returns to our screens next May.

Fans of the Contest will welcome back ARMTV from Armenia and RTCG from Montenegro, both taking to the stage for the first time since Tel Aviv in 2019.

It’s also a special year for Norwegian broadcaster NRK as they will be celebrating the selection of their 60th Eurovision entry during the Melodi Grand Prix grand final on Saturday 19 February.

We will also witness the 300th ‘Big Five’ performance – that’s a song from one of either France, Germany, Italy, Spain or United Kingdom.

Martin Österdahl, Executive Supervisor of the Eurovision Song Contest, shared his thoughts on the line-up:

‘We are so excited that we once again have over 40 broadcasters competing to win the iconic Eurovision trophy in Turin next May.

The team from Rai are working hard on preparations to welcome all the delegations to a new Host City and ensuring the Eurovision Song Contest will provide the excitement and state-of-the-art spectacle expected by nearly 200 million viewers.’

On the announcement of the 41 participants, Simona Martorelli and Claudio Fasulo from Italian broadcaster Rai added:

‘After 31 years, Italy is proud to host the Eurovision Song Contest again! As Executive Producers, we are incredibly excited to set up this amazing event and welcome delegations from 41 nations to Turin next year.

Above all, we strongly believe the Eurovision Song Contest will allow us to showcase and share the beauty of Italy with a global audience via the elements that unite us all: music and harmony.’

The Italian city of Turin won the race to become the Host City of the 66th Eurovision Song Contest, setting Saturday 14 May as the date of the Grand Final, which will be held in PalaOlimpico along with two Semi-Finals on 10 and 12 May.


Eurovision 2022: More than 40 countries will compete in Turin!

Through the official account of the Eurovision Contest on Twitter, a few minutes ago we had an important piece of information. The countries that will take part in Eurovision 2022, will be more than 40!

A few days ago again through Twitter, the Eurovision account asked fans how many countries they think will take part in Turin.

About 62% answered more than 40 countries and today we learned that this answer was the right one!

The above practically means that apart from Montenegro, which has already announced its return to Eurovision 2022, but also Armenia, which, although it has not yet opened its papers, its participation in Junior Eurovision in December makes us almost sure that the Caucasian country will return. We may have other countries that will either return or make their debut in the contest that will take place next May in Turin.

Andorra, Monaco, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Slovakia and Hungary do not seem willing to return. On the other hand, Turkey has so far kept a low profile. However, the EBU’s announcement this summer, for discussions with the country’s public broadcaster regarding the possibility of its return, leaves some hope.

Soon, however, we will find out the full list of countries that will compete in the 66th Eurovision Song Contest and all our questions will be answered!

Turin Eurovision candidacy at risk after scandal as Bologna advances hosting preparations!

The selection process to know which city will host the 66th edition of the Eurovision Song Contest in Italy are progressing.  Unfortunately for early favorite city Turin, an ongoing judicial investigation may seriously damage its chances to host the contest.  The company that manages Pala Alpitour (the proposed arena to host the competition in Turin) is investigated for its alleged involvement with the mafia.  At the same time, Bologna has continued their own preparations for their Eurovision candidacy.

Mafia scandal puts Turin candidacy at risk

Turin’s prefect, Claudio Palomba ordered an investigation against Parcolimpico srl.  The company faces accusations of having links with the mafia.  The potential consequences of such an investigation will likely jeopardize the future of the Turin candidacy.  Parcolimpico manage the facilities Turin inherited from the 2006 Winter Olympics.  This includes the Pala Alpitour arena, the proposed venue for Eurovision 2022.

The news has been confirmed by La Stampa, one of the most widely circulated newspapers in Italy.  The piece report also includes the statements of the Turin’s prefect.  Henceforth, these revelations put Turin’s candidacy in bad light.  After Måneskin’s Eurovision victory Turin was the early favorite to become the hosting city for 2022.

Bologna advances hosting preparations

Conversely, Bologna, one of the strongest candidate cities after Turin has presented to the press all the details of its candidacy.

For instance, in case RAI and the EBU select Bologna as the hosting city, the Insignia handover ceremony as well as the Semi-Final allocation draw will take place in January in the hall of Bologna’s city council.

According to the plans, the 2022 Eurovision carpet ceremony will keep its Turquoise color since the big sponsor of the event will be Moroccanoil.  The Turquoise party will take place in Piazza Maggiore’s U area.

Should the health conditions regarding the pandemic allows it, the Eurovillage will return to Piazza VIII Agosto, the largest square in Bologna.

Moreover, if the circumstances allow it the Euroclub will also make its return.  Bologna is planning to have its own Euroclub on Spazio DumBO , a huge closed parking lot.

As previously reported, Bologna has two potential host venues for Eurovision 2022: the Fiera and the Unipol Arena.

In short we will know which city will host the Eurovision 2022.  According to the EBU plans the city announcement will be public by the end of August.  There are still 11 cities competing to host the event including  of course, Turin and Bologna.

  • Over 2,000 hotel rooms in the area close to the event.

Moreover, the potential arena should have an audience capacity in the main hall of around 8,000 – 10,000 during the event, be indoors with air-conditioning and have a well defined perimeter, have a main hall with the capacity to house the set and all other requirements needed to produce a high level broadcast production, have ample space within easy access of the main hall to support additional production needs, such as: a press centre, delegation spaces, dressing rooms, artist facilities, staff facilities, hospitality, audience facilities, etc.


In addition to this, the arena has to be available for 6 weeks before the event, 2 weeks during the show (which will take place in May) and a week after the end of the event for dismantling.  Accordingly, fans can start discounting from the bidding process arenas that have scheduled events taking place during the weeks surrounding the Eurovision Song Contest.  Before this announcement different cities had announced their interest to host the song contest.  The list of potential hosts includes Turin, Rome, Milan and Bologna.
