Forty is the magic number — that’s how many countries will compete at the Eurovision Song Contest 2022 in Turin. But there can only be one winner. To help you make an informed decision about where to cast your vote, the Wiwi Jury — our in-house panel of music unprofessionals — has ranked each of the acts from Eurovision 2022 and written our own reviews. It’s hard work being honest, but somebody has to do it.

Our jury consists of 18 jurors who hail from Australia, Bulgaria, Israel, Netherlands, New Zealand, Spain, United Kingdom and United States. We are truly international, y’all!

Each juror assesses each song independently and then awards each song a score from 1 to 10. The highest and lowest scores are dropped before determining the Wiwi Jury average.

Scores and reviews were made by in April 2022, based on available versions of the songs at that time. As always, Wiwi Jury reviews will not be changed to reflect new information from pre-party performances or the Eurovision rehearsals.

My favorite song contest! Especially this year. Ukraine’s victory was expected and very important. I really like their song! More than listening to the songs I like just playing the slot machines. It’s good that now you can play online. The main thing is to choose a reliable provider and method of deposit and withdrawal. I advise to look at this site. Thanks again for interesting reviews on Eurovision!

So, after we know the results. The big mistakes this year are: the UK, Albania and Ireland (totally wrong when compared to the actual result)
The big hits from the WWbloggs team: Spain, Italy and Portugal (quite similar to the actual result).
I am not including Ukraine, for obvious reasons.

I agree. Wiwibloggs have lost some of its edge the last two years. I find myself tuning into Alesia Michelle’s comments (she’s so sharp) and ESCyounited these days. For one thing Cinan should not be on site every year (he adds nothing). What happenened to Deban and Padraig?

Kinda not their fault, the results were extremely shocking, as i believed Ela and Sekret definitely would make it and Boys do cry and fade to black would be eliminated

If Cinan should have given a 10 to Chanel, like he wanted to give her, Spain would be the winner with 8,97. He said that he gave her a 9 in order that his 10 shouldn’t be removed. But there were more perfect 10…, so it wasn’t be remove but any means and Spain should have won the Wiwiblogs jury.

I really find Italy and Poland’s score underrated; as well as UK. Sweden’s song is voted with high points I can understand but Sweden’s score is too high for this mediocre song.

I still cant understand how you can put Norway, Greece and Albania over Poland, Italy and UK 🙂

Wouldnt mind If Greece or Spain won There is something wrong with Cornelias voice in all live performans, kind of broken. UK will flop and will finish 15-20 in the finals. Serbia will struggle in semis, finishing 10th, and then it will do really well If it qualifies. Italy actually might win again, If it comes top5 with juries and televote. There will be huge difference in votes. Uk will be top5 with juries, and bottom with televote. Ukraine will be 5th to 10th… My guess 1. Italy 2. Netherlands 3. Sweden 4. Poland 5. Greece 6. Spain 7. Ukraine… Read more »

i’d love to see suzanne’s rerank post-eurovision. she rated everything between 2 and 8, so she clearly hasn’t gotten involved enough with any of the songs to feel strongly, but after the rehearsals she’ll surely have other opinions. anyway here’s my marks (not necessarily reflecting my personal ranking) for the zero people who care: 10/10 – serbia 9/10 – norway, lithuania, portugal 8.5/10 – armenia, netherlands, italy 8/10 – cyprus, iceland 7.5/10 – spain, france 7/10 – malta, sweden, belgium, austria, albania, georgia, estonia, ukraine 6.5/10 – united kingdom, ireland 6/10 – denmark, czech republic, germany, moldova 5.5/10 – croatia,… Read more »

I’m happy with eight of your top ten. I also like that you’re not afraid to put some favourites down if they’re not to your taste. Don’t agree on all of them of course but as I said, it’s a pretty good top ten. :3

As an Irish person I feel damned if I do comment on our song and damned I don’t, but I am baffled as to why people are getting so worked up about Ireland currently placing second in this poll so far (they will slip down when it’s time for Sweden, Italy, Netherlands, Ukraine, Spain, and maybe The UK to come under scrutiny). I’ve followed Wiwibloggs religiously since 2014 and all the Wiwi jury is is just a measure of what songs the team likes and doesn’t like as much.
