Over the past week our jaws have dropped as the artists of Eurovision 2022 unveiled their stage shows in Torino. Even if the kinetic sun has morphed into a rainbow of death, the acts are still turning up and turning out, proving that they and their teams have creative solutions to work around the mechanical failure that initially left delegations scratching their heads. 

Now that you’ve seen snippets of all the rehearsals, listened to commentary and had a chance to take notes, we have a very important question for you: Who should win Eurovision 2022?

You have 40 choices. You can vote for as many artists as you would like, but you can only vote ONE time. Be sure to click the box next to each act before hitting submit. Then let us know who you voted for in the comments box down below. 

If it helps, you can re-watch our rehearsal reactions and interviews at the end of this post.

The Netherlands should win, for the song and they know how to build a stage that is doing what it should do?

Even if Ukraine wins, and Eurovision 2023 will be held in another country. I can still assume that Russia will not return.

Since it must either restore the economy, or create its own equivalent of Eurovision, or either hold agreements to end the war

I think we will see a very exciting competition on Saturday. This year’s competition is very tough and I can’t even predict who could win and it’s sooo exciting. My only hope (I hope, I hope :D) is that Estonia will get to the Grand Final on Saturday and that Stefan will get a good place. I don’t think he’ll win, but I want him to do well. TOP10 would be nice, but we’ll see, because like I said…competition is tough. Although I think every artist really deserves to win, but I think it would be cool if the victory… Read more »

After having reviewed all songs again, the verdict is as follows.
Pure quality: Portugal and Italy. Best songs for play list: Armenia and Czechia. Guilty pleasures: Albania and Georgia. Horror songs: Poland and Australia (with many more close contestants). Predicted winner: Ukraine (fine with me).

I’d love the UK to win just because I think it’s the best chance we’ve had in ages, but my absolute favourite song this year is the Dutch entry – I’m obsessed with it – don’t think she’ll win though. I don’t like the Greek song at all nor the message it portrays – way too dark for me. I think it’ll come down to Sweden, UK or Italy and I would imagine that’ll be the top 3 but no idea in which order. Ukraine, not my kind of song although I appreciate why people like it – should make… Read more »

No. The way things are going right now, they will be more than able to hold it at home. I’ll put short money on Lviv next time, should they win. It used to be part of Poland, and Poland has been quite generous.

Am i the only one who feels like Sweden and Italy are starting to loose steam? I dont get the winner vibe anymore when i see the rehearsals of them, the winner vibe has moved over to United Kingdom and Spain. Italy and Sweden could still win of course but i just dont get that gut feeling anymore

I completely get what you mean, but it is worth noting that Sweden and somewhat Italy are similarly staged to their national finals, and I do wonder if that plays a role in this general perception that they have lost steam and then considering that people watching for the first time won’t be having that experience it will all be exciting and new. I also acknowledge Spain’s choreography is mostly the same, but with some exciting new flourishes including costume and this fan. I’m not saying it’s the only reason people seem to be cooling on Sweden and Italy but… Read more »

This might become the most exciting year ever. I dont think there has ever been such an unclear winner ever. Usually its pretty obvious who will win, or at least there is 2 countries that are battling it out for the win. But this year i could literally see 7 countries win, if not even more

I think that every year that there’s no clear winner one should be afraid of Sweden. They are always so high in juries and that can make them win. Personally speaking, I wish Greece wins. My other choice would be Spain (that’d be fun).

France really deserves to win this year. It’s original, ethnic, spectacular.

Alvan & Ahez are so accessible, friendly, mystic, sexy and classy. We are very far from the competitors from Sweden or Spain, and “diva” syndrome. Unfortunately, I quickly understood that it will not yet be for this year. I still hope a top 10 for them, even if it will depend on their order of passage.

I think that the Victory race will be between the UK, Serbia, Poland, Greece and Ukraine. I am sorry for spanish fans but I don’t think Chanel could be the winner.
I don’t think it’s a good song. I think Chanel is just a good ‘performer’. It’s not the same. Sorry guys…

Best song: Italy
Full package and deserves to win: UK
Additional vote goes to Norway and San Marino: They have done their homework and brings a good song and a show to esc 2022
Not in the running for me personally:
Sweden (too generic)
Spain (great choreography – hopeless song)
Greece (yawn)
Poland (great voice – overrated song attempting another Arcade)
Netherlands (like it … but there not space for everyone)

It has been such an unpredictable year and it is quite fun actually. Last year competition was also very open with anyone can win situation untli the last minute. After rehearsals Italy was a clear winner for me and I think for most of us. However this year I can’t say ”this country sure is gonna win..” and I love this unpredictability lol. Odds are still very much favoring the Ukraine. I am not seeing them to win but they seem to be in top 5 for sure. Spain could win and it will be the biggest pilot twist ever… Read more »

My favourite is The Netherlands, but I agree with you. I’ve had different opinion couple of days ago, but now I think that the race is between UK, Serbia and Spain. I wouldn’t count out Sweden no matter the drop in the odds. They will do great with the jury votes which could mess up Spain or Serbia for example. I am from Serbia and I am really excited that we are at least close to the top 10 this year and as someone being very critical to our representatives I am very happy that this year we have a… Read more »

Too many times I’ve been falsely lured into this “we’re nailed on top 5” and then we end up 17th, 4th last or straight last. So I’m just letting our act do the talking and seeing if Europe responds. As for the favourites, I think Ukraine will grow on me throughout the week as it’s very catchy but staging will depend if I like it more.
