It’s almost time to pack up the national collections of pyro, glitter and hairspray another year. But before we switch our focus to the main event in Turin, there’s still one last Saturday of national final season to go. And while it’s a relatively quiet night with just three shows to juggle, there is sure to be plenty of drama as Sweden, Iceland and Portugal all choose their songs for Eurovision 2022.You can follow all the results on wiwibloggs (and via our Twitter: @wiwibloggs and Instagram: wiwibloggs) throughout the day. Here’s a quick rundown of what’s happening, when it’s on and how to watch.
Saturday 12 March: Eurovision 2022 Selection Shows
Sweden’s Melodifestivalen 2022
🏆 Grand Final
Time: 20:00 CET to 22:00 CET
After six long weeks, the biggest and sparkliest national selection process draws to a close. While this year’s edition is unlikely to go down in the Melfest annals with the all time greats, there were still several diamonds to be found in the rough. The pre-final build-up has seen much of the fan love focused on former Love Generation singer Cornelia Jakobs with “Hold Me Closer”, but entries from Liamoo and Klara Hammarström aren’t to be discounted. And then, of course, there’s Anders Bagge. Will the Swedes vote for the much loved local crooner? Or will they keep their thoughts focused on the big prize in May?

OK guys, this is the last night of national finals. With only Armenia and Azerbaijan left to reveal their songs, We will have a full list out for Eurovision 2022.
Oh nice, Portugal starts when Sweden is over. I like 🙂
Yes and can fit the ending of Iceland in to. Will be a good night!
I hope dotter wins the Melfest. Oh wait…
Watching Melfest to be disappointed when Cornelia doesn’t win.
Also sorry for off topic but Emma Muscat is changing her song apparently? Interesting…
Yes I heard that to… Would definitely be a good thing if she does (assuming the knew one was better) maybe she could a song called Ritmu, it’s really good.
I like Out Of Sight 🙁
An exciting night ahead, and I’m looking forward to a big show in Sweden tonight. Sad it’s the last night of the season, definitely has had lots of ups and downs.
