Eurovision 2022 acts 6 February

As the dust settles on one Super Saturday and we brace ourselves for an even busier one next week, let’s reflect. We now have nine acts for Eurovision 2022 with Ireland, North Macedonia and Israel all entering the fray. But which act is your favourite so far? It’s time to vote!

 Spain’s Chanel took gold in our most recent survey, but can she hold on in a more crowded field? You decide!

You can listen to the two new additions below. Then vote in our poll. Choose wisely, you can only vote ONE time. Voting is open until Friday 11 February. We will then relaunch the poll after the weekend to include all the new entries from Estonia, Latvia, Lithunaia and Lithuania.

Eurovision 2022 entries as of 6 February

New entries

Ireland: Brooke “That’s Rich”

Derry’s Brooke took victory in Ireland’s newly-revived Eurosong, beating out five other songs in special edition of the country’s flagship talkshow — The Late Late Show. “That’s Rich” proved to be popular with the international jury and the public watching at home, topping the vote with both camps. However, the domestic jury was less keen, placing the entry second to last. 

North Macedonia: Andrea “Circles”

North Macedonia also returned to a national selection for the first time since Eurovision 2015. Za Evrosong 2022 saw six acts compete. After combining online public votes with those of the jury, two acts emerged on top — Viktor Apostolovski with “Superman” and Andrea with “Circles”. However, as Andrea had more jury votes, she’s the one going to Turin in accordance with the selection’s tiebreak rule.

Israel: Michael Ben David “I.M”

As has been the case since 2015, Israel used a talent show to select its act for Eurovision. However, this year the country went with The X Factor winner rather than The Next Star. Earlier in the week, we saw the four finalists present eight songs. These were reduced to four for the final, and by the time the credits rolled we Michael Ben David had come out on top with “I.M”.

Italy: Mahmood and Blanco “Brividi”

Italy’s iconic Sanremo Festival concluded its five night run on Saturday. And to almost no one’s surprise, Mahmood and Blanco took home the trophy. “Brividi” had topped the end-of-night rankings almost all week and was even charting inside Spotify’s global top ten. During the superfinal televote, they received almost 55% of all votes cast.

Other entries

  • Albania: Ronela Hajati “Sekret”
  • Bulgaria: Intelligent Music Project “Intention”
  • Czech Republic: We Are Domi “Lights Off”
  • Moldova: Zdob și Zdub and Frații Advahov “Trenulețul”
  • Spain: Chanel with “SloMo”

I think the Italian entry is good, but it will not win.
So far, I think Israel and Spain stand the best chance. But there are many more songs to come!

Spain sent the best it could send, thank God it is not represented by three hysterical girls yelling at a scenario with two guys jumping around. This year they will not make a fool of themselves as they almost always do.

Italy is SO GOOD, but I am really scared how they will cut the song down into 3 minutes. It just flows so well as is, it does not have one single redundant or expandable segment.
I’m sure they know what they are doing, but this 3 min rule is just brutal and I’m worried.

yeah, I feel like having to abide by that rule is also what hurt Grande Amore in 2015. In fact, I can see this song doing about as well – hyped as a potential winner by fans, and ending around 3rd place overall.

Italy and Albania are extremely overrated. Italy is nice but boring and Albania is a mess…
Czech Rep is good but generic, the rest are bad.

Israel by far, the most powerful staging and performance, in turino it will be fire, Michael doesn’t come to play if you listen to the lyrics of his song he comes to take the crown, and he is not joking

For now, I was expecting a higher level of quality. Yet Italy is the only contender, I enjoyed listening to Circles from North Macedonia and That’s Rich by Ireland, which 3 I voted. I wish better songs will come out soon. Love xx

I don’t see anything particular about the lyrics of the Italian song at all, you speak as if it were a philosophical treatise and in reality it’s a constant repetition, and when they sing in falsetto it’s horrible, although it has a part that reminds me of the greatest hits of italian romantic song I do think it is completely overrated.

1. Albania (I think if another country sent this song, it would be much more famous, so I don’t want to leave it behind simply because of a nonexisting hype for the big 5 If it gets to the final, I’m voting for it)
2. Spain
3. Italy
4. North Macedonia
5. Ireland
6. Israel
7. Bulgaria
8. Moldova
9 Czechia (It reminds me of 2014. hits and I don’t like that. It has zero personality, nothing that tells me it is a Czech entry, and upon all of that, it’s outdate.)

For Czech Republic I would’ve preferred either Annabelle or Giudy, but now that’s just wishful thinking.
However, I think “Lights Off” is a better entry than those of Moldova, Bulgaria and Israel. idk if that’s enough for them to make it to the final, though.

I typically don’t fall all over the Italian entries—but lyrically, this song is on point and that chemistry onstage is spellbinding (and save your comments, I know one is straight…I’m speaking of chemistry between 2 artists)

Reply to  Jake

I dont see that chemistry at all or I am not sure what do you mean by ‘chemistry’. It is a sad song, a song of farewell, splitting and they are smiling to each other, the one not singing is just walking around and lipsinging what the other is singing. There is no chemistry at all regarding what they are singing.

When Greece organized the contest Greek fans overhyped Anna Vissi’s song too. In the exact same way. Did they way, though? Once in a while, this happens. :-DD

3. Czech Republic

4. Albania (could grow on my with the final version)

5. Ireland

6. North Macedonia

7. Israel (sorry, but I don’t like it)

8. or 9. Moldova

9. or 8. Bulgaria

Moldova’s song is catchy but cheap and Bulgaria’s song is a well made but boring rock song. I can’t decide who should come last.

A Greek Eurovision site claims that they listened the song ands it’s a contender for the win. They just hype the entry because they are besties with the people working for the broadcaster, they haven’t done any constructive criticism at all and they try to get views by hyping.

If you do have suspicions just know that Deban also heard the song and many other bloggers and interviewers so that they can tell their opinion. That’s why Greece is so high those last hours. The release date is close so we won’t wait for too long!
