Ever since the unfortunate cancellation of Eurovision 2020, song contest organisers have required broadcasters to film backup performances in case an act can’t make it to the stage in May. Now, the EBU is releasing almost all of the Live On Tape recordings for Turin 2022.
The recordings are being released on the official Eurovision channel across a period of 10 days and the publication schedule is following the semi-final running orders. Today, Friday 17 June, we’re getting three more songs from semi-final one — Denmark’s Reddi, Iceland’s Systur and Austria‘s Lumix feat. Pia Maria. The remaining acts will follow over the coming days.
Eurovision 2022 Live On Tape Performances
Denmark’s REDDI – “The Show”

What do you think of the Live On Tapes? Which is your favourite from today’s batch? Let us know down below.
Denmark was my favourite of this bunch. Although I also liked Austria (although the vocals were subpar) and Iceland. All of them were good.
I think HALO is a very hard song to sing live…and Pia might have a radio-ready voice, but couldn’t do much with that song live…I think in general there seems to be a track record of DJs at eurovision thinking of finding the right voice for their track without thinking about how it sounds live…Grommee, Darude, DJ Bobo
All those you mentioned are just very poor entries that no vocalist could really save, sorry.
I’m sorry but please listen to how bad Pia’s vocals here. I can’t…
Tbh the only ones to look forward to are the internally selected acts because thus far except Albania, all NF winners simply used their NF staging, which unfortunately reminded me once more how awful Denmark’s entry was this year
