Poll battles: Eurovision 2022 returning artists
Bulgaria – Stoyan Yankoulov
Bulgaria have selected the supergroup Intelligent Music Project for Eurovision 2022 with “Intention”. Among their line-up is drummer Stoyan Yankoulov, who has graced the Eurovision stage on two previous occasions.
In 2007 and 2013, Stoyan put his drumming skills on full show as part of the duo Elitsa & Stoyan. Performing alongside vocalist Elitsa Todorova, the pair delivered the folk songs “Water” and “Samo Shampioni”.
With “Water” in 2007, Elitsa & Stoyan gave Bulgaria their first ever qualification and top five finish at the contest. Things didn’t go as well with “Samo Shampioni” in 2013, as the pair failed to qualify for the grand final.
Moldova – Zdob și Zdub
Moldova’s Zdob și Zdub also make their third appearance at Eurovision this year. They’ll be singing “Trenuleţul” in collaboration with Fraţii Advahov.
The group first graced the stage in 2005 as Moldova’s very first act at the contest. It was a successful debut and Zdob și Zdub finished sixth with their song “Boonika bate doba”.
Six years later, the folk punk band returned for another taste. At Eurovision 2011 they performed “So Lucky”. Wearing giant gnome hats, Zdob și Zdub again reached the left-hand side of the scoreboard, finishing in 12th place.
Italy – Mahmood
It’s only been three years since Mahmood first stepped onto the Eurovision stage, but the Italian star is already back for round two.
In 2019, Mahmood took home the silver medal thanks to his contemporary R&B hit “Soldi”.
This time around, he’ll be hoping to go one further and clinch that gold. He won’t be alone in 2022 either, as he’s joined by duet partner BLANCO for “Brividi”.
Ukraine – Ihor Didenchuk (Kalush Orchestra)
The dust has barely settled on Ihor Didenchuk’s appearance at Eurovision 2021 but he’s already returning to represent Ukraine in 2022.
Ihor is the flautist in electro-folk band Go_A, who took Ukraine to the top five in 2021 with the spellbinding entry “Shum”.
But Ihor is a man of many talents … and groups. The instrumentalist is also a member of Kalush Orchestra, who are Ukraine’s chosen act for Eurovision 2022 with the song “Stefania”.
