Eurovision 2022 grand final — YouTube
As has been the case for the past several years, the grand final of Eurovision 2022 will be live-streamed on the official Eurovision YouTube channel. This stream will not contain commentary or voting numbers. It is available worldwide except in Australia, the Czech Republic, Greece, the United Kingdom and the United States. Viewers in the first four countries will be easily able to watch the contest via alternative sources listed further down this page.
Eurovision 2022 grand final — United States of America (USA)
American viewers will be able to watch the show live on the Peacock streaming platform. The show will air at 15:00 New York time or 12:00 in Los Angeles.
Alternatively, U.S viewers can try their look with some of the participating broadcasters. The downside to this option is that you may have to listen to commentary in a language that you do not speak.
Eurovision 2022 on Television and Radio
Of course, Eurovision 2022 will air live on all 40 competing broadcasters — although some countries may air the semi-final in which they are not voting in on delay. As well as TV, many will also stream the shows on their websites. Several will simulcast on radio too. The competing networks are listed below.

The contest will also be shown by broadcasters in non-competing countries, including Kosovo and Kazakhstan.

Are you excited for the grand final? How will you be watching? Let us know below.
will be voting for Sweden, Netherlands, Serbia and Poland from the UK.
Ukraine who are my winners are already going to get loads of them, so I plan to help out the other countries that are also good
Am I the only one that thinks Maneskin not singing Zitti e Buoni is very disrespectful? They will only sing Supermodel…
I’m not sure this ever happened in the past…the winners not singing the song that made them winners
I didn’t know this!! 😮
I mean, the host act normally sings their most recent single and their winning song, it’s pretty weird and even rude they’re not singing Zitti e Buoni tonight if true
Unfortunately I won’t be able to watch the final (or at least most of it) as I’ll be working during those hours today 🙁
Anyways, I’m wishing everyone a joyful evening.
If I lived in Europe I’d vote for Netherlands, Portugal and Lithuania tonight. But whoever the winner ends up being I will celebrate it and I won’t be mad at all, I’ve come to terms with all of the possibilities 🙂
I’m happy that it’s possible to have Eurovision once a year despite something happening every year.
Love and peace <3
Thank you very much! Hope you enjoy the show on replay!
I don’t have enough time to watch it on replay, I’ll watch the highlights and the results nonetheless 🙂
FYI-in the US, Peacock is only showing it live to its paying Premium users.
Canada’s Omni, is not broadcasting the show online, unlike last year.
Maybe the Swedish stream would be a good option?
I am going to try Australia. If that doesn’t work I will watch the Swedish or German feeds again. Maybe NRK. I will NOT watch Graham Norton ever again. That was far worse than listening to commentators not speaking my language.
go to svtplay.se and type ‘Eurovision Song Contest’ in the search bar.
For the first time ever I tried to make a prediction of the full 2022 final ranking. Of course I might be terribly wrong and above all this is just for fun. Here it is (comments are welcome):
Absolutely here for Ukraine, Poland, United Kingdom, Netherlands, France, Iceland, Sweden, Armenia, Portugal, and Moldova.
Happy Eurovision Saturday guys!! Hope y’all enjoy it wherever you are and whatever you will be doing.
May your nations and adopted nations (if like me, your nation isn’t there) have a great night.
Enjoy the show! x
Enjoy tonight Darren! I will probably vote for Czech Republic and Estonia. Envy you having Marty’s commentary I’ll have to endure that of my former classmate. He will probably be all over the obvious comments you could make about Lights Off!
Marty will be the saving grace for Irish Eurovision fans I’m sure
Will be giving all of my 20 votes to the Wolves : )
Happy Grand Final everybody!
I don’t know, but.. if there are two countries than can do worse than expected I think it’s Italy or Sweden in all of this. But we’ll see.. Spain is probobly a top 3 candidate even though I’m personally so tired of that kind of performances. We see it all the time in the US from example Jennifer Lopez or someone like her and the song is not very original. And it seems the result is already clear. It will be Ukraine that wins. Still I wish everone good luck.
I am having the same feeling with Italy… I think we won’t be as high as usual.
Spain is also not my cup of tea. There are so many different songs this year that it will be a pity if a song like that wins. But good luck to all
Rooting/voting for this seven-nation army tonight: Portugal, Greece, France, Serbia, the UK, Lithuania and Iceland. Whatever will be, will be.
I cannot vote, but will ask my friends to vote for Lithuania. She is the best of all for me!
Fantastic!! Queen Monika!
Bottom 5 :
I’d like to disagree because I really like two of those song, but realistically, I know they are going to be in the 20s probably.
They’re staying on my playlist though.
An honest question:
Now that Albania is out, and Italy probably won’t win, will this be enough for some aggressors-in-chief to stop forcing their tastes and opinions on the others and stubbornly claim that they know best?
I can’t cope!!!!
5 hours to go
I will vote for Netherlands & Portugal.
I can spare 1 or 2 votes for Sweden, Serbia and maybe UK. I will see how the finals go.
Im voting for PORTUGAL, THE NETHERLANDS, ICELAND and SERBIA 🙂
maybe also in UKRAINE and UK 🙂
