Vision Music Awards

A spectacle filled with space men, bolero jackets and bucket hats, the 66th Eurovision Song Contest in Turin delivered a visual and aural feast.

And while the competition may be over, there’s still time to celebrate this year’s shows, the artists and their songs. The team at wiwibloggs is proud to present the ninth edition of our Vision Music Awards (VMAs). As Eurovision season wraps up, it’s one more opportunity to give the class of 2022 their final hurrah before we welcome 2023’s hopefuls north to the United Kingdom on behalf of Ukraine.

In the aftermath of the contest, the Wiwi Jury have shortlisted candidates across 14 categories, ranging from the classic Best Dressed and Best Live Vocals, to the almost comedic Best Staging — a tricky award to manage given the “sun-of-death” that took over the Turin stage.

But who deserves the gold? That’s up to you.

You can vote for your favourites to win the Vision Music Awards in 11 of our 14 categories. The remaining three awards — the Congeniality Award, the Dana International Award for LGBTQ+ Equality and Least Bothered by Results — will be decided by the Wiwi Jury, who interacted with the artists on the ground in Turin and before. 

Read on to see the finalists and to vote for your favourites now…

VMAs 2022: The Nominees

You can vote for as many contestants in each poll as you like, but you can only submit your votes one time. So choose wisely and make it count! We’ll also be hiding the results until it is time to announce the winners to keep the drama high and the spoilers low. Without further ado… wiwibloggs readers, start voting now!

Most Likely to Succeed Commercially

ABBA. Céline Dion. Gina G. Many acts have used the Eurovision Song Contest as a launch pad for their chart-topping careers. Italy’s Måneskin soared to stratospheric levels of success after their win in this category in 2021, and continue to top the charts and tour the world. This award honours the contestant who is most likely to make it big — or at least cash some checks — once the hype for Eurovision 2022 fades.

Previous winners:

2013: Norway’s Margaret Berger
2014: The Netherlands’ Common Linnets
2015: Belgium’s Loïc Nottet
2016: Australia’s Dami Im
2017: Belgium’s Blanche
2019: Italy’s Mahmood
2020: Iceland’s Daði Freyr
2021: Italy’s Måneskin

Best Dressed

Classic, couture, campy, kitsch… the Eurovision wardrobe department has it all. This award celebrates the contestant who brought it to the runway and turned out the fiercest looks. Whether it’s on-stage or off-stage at the Moroccanoil Turquoise Carpet, every Eurovision star knows there’s always time for fashion.

Previous winners:

2013: Romania’s Cezar Ouatu
2014: Ukraine’s Mariya Yaremchuk
2015: Russia’s Polina Gagarina
2016: Poland’s Michal Szpak
2017: Poland’s Kasia Mos
2019: Australia’s Kate Miller-Heidke
2021: Italy’s Måneskin

Best Live Vocals

Eurovision may be a battle of songs, but equally important is the voice. In 2012, Rona Nishliu’s epic high notes almost shattered the glass of the Crystal Hall Arena. In the years that have followed, other vocalists have given her a run for her money. This year featured a number of talented singers, but only one can win the title.

Previous winners:

2013: Ukraine’s Zlata Ognevich
2014: Spain’s Ruth Lorenzo
2015: Latvia’s Aminata Savadogo
2016: Poland’s Michal Szpak
2017: The Netherlands’ O’G3NE
2019: The Netherlands’ Duncan Laurence
2021: Switzerland’s Gjon’s Tears

Most Memorable Staging

This award honours the contestants who took the biggest risks on stage, creating memorable — if sometimes divisive— performances. Before casting your vote, consider the creativity and originality of each performance. It’s also important of all years to have sympathy to this year’s contestants, many of whom had their plans altered due to a quite-not-so-kinetic prop on stage that derailed plans.

Previous winners:

2013: Romania’s Cezar Ouatu
2014: Poland’s Donatan & Cleo
2015: Belgium’s Loïc Nottet
2016: Russia’s Sergey Lazarev
2017: Azerbaijan’s Dihaj
2019: Australia’s Kate Miller-Heidke
2021: Ukraine’s Go_A

Best Choreography

Some acts keep it simple while others go all out with their choreography. At Eurovision 2018, Cyprus’ Eleni Foureira set the city of Lisbon en fuego and redefined hairography as we know it. We’ve since seen some epic dance numbers take the song contest stage, and this year is no exception. But who threw the best shapes in Turin?

Previous winner:

2021: Lithuania’s The Roop

Most Improved

The road to Eurovision can be long and bumpy. But for a lot of acts, even the most difficult journeys arrive at beautiful destinations — even if a revamp is required along the way. This award highlights the artist who surprised us the most by demonstrating major improvements from their pre-Eurovision reveal to the contest itself. When casting your vote, consider how far they’ve come — and where they finished on the scoreboard in Turin.

Previous winners:

2013: San Marino’s Valentina Monetta
2014: Ukraine’s Mariya Yaremchuk
2015: Georgia’s Nina Sublatti
2016: Belgium’s Laura Tesoro
2017: The UK’s Lucie Jones
2019: Czech Republic’s Lake Malawi
2021: Russia’s Manizha

Best Song with a Message

All music is art. And often that art comes with a story. Whether it’s the tale of a personal struggle or a message for society at large, songwriting enables an artist to channel their sentiment through art — and Eurovision helps them relay it to a global audience. Jamala’s “1944” demonstrated the plight of her ancestors, Boggie’s “Wars For Nothing” was a call for world peace and Bilal Hassani’s “Roi” taught us all to shine bright. But which song from this year preached its gospel the best?

Previous winner:

2021: Russia’s Manizha

Best Use of Social Media

As we delve deeper and deeper into the digital age, social media is now an integral part of the Eurovision experience. Many contestants post updates and engage with their fans via Twitter, Instagram and TikTok — and we continue to see some incredibly creative uses of these apps. Challenges, storytime videos and dance tutorials… the class of 2022 have done it all. Whose social game was the strongest?

Previous winner:

2021: Iceland’s Daði Freyr

Best Use of Props

It’s not uncommon for Eurovision contestants to share the stage with elaborate props. Whether whimsical or avant-garde, these props can become iconic in their own right for helping the artist create a memorable moment on stage. In recent years, we’ve seen a giant hamster wheel from Ukraine, a butter churner from Poland, and rows upon rows of maneki-neko lucky cats from Israel. Who has earned a spot in this pantheon of fab? And no, the use of the kinetic sun doesn’t count!

Previous winner:

2021: Ukraine’s Go_A

Best Eurovision Campaign Trail

Some acts go all out with promo before Eurovision kicks off. In a normal year, that might include attending Eurovision pre-parties across the continent. Pre-parties themselves were back in strong force across so many cities this year, while other artists joined the campaign trail virtually through their Youtube channel. When casting your vote for this award, consider whose pre-Eurovision campaign developed the most momentum leading up to the contest.

Previous winner:

2021: San Marino’s Senhit

Best Music Video

Before we see the acts belt their Eurovision songs live on-stage in their full glory, we get additional visual delights in the form of music videos. This award honours the act whose music video wowed us the most. Our nominee list includes all the 2022 acts who released a full music video alongside their Eurovision song.

Previous winner:

2021: Switzerland’s Gjon’s Tears

Congeniality Award (Wiwi Jury to decide)

Since 2013, Team Wiwi has awarded Miss/Mr Congeniality to the contestant whose press conferences and off-stage appearances did the most to honour the Eurovision tradition of peace and camaraderie. Daria Kinzer missed out on a grand final spot at Eurovision 2011, but she stayed throughout the week and partied with her fans until the wee hours of the morning. All smiles, all the time. This award honours the artist who did their upmost to keep the Eurovision community smiling.

Previous winners:

2013: Israel’s Moran Mazor
2014: Portugal’s Suzy Guerra
2015: Armenia’s Tamar Kaprelian
2016: Russia’s Sergey Lazarev
2017: Austria’s Nathan Trent
2019: Cyprus’ Tamta
2021: Croatia’s Albina

The Dana International Award for LGBTQ+ Equality (Wiwi Jury to decide)

This award honours Dana International, who became the first transgender woman to win Eurovision in 1998. Conservatives at home asked Israel to withdraw from the contest, but she stood her ground and sang for all oppressed people en route to victory. The Wiwi Jury awards this prize to the contestant who did the most for the many LGBTQ+ fans who follow Eurovision. Activism is risky business, but the winner knows that doing what’s right is more important than bowing to the haters.

Previous winners:

2013: Finland’s Krista Siegfrids
2014: Austria’s Conchita Wurst
2015: Serbia’s Bojana Stamenov
2016: Israel’s Hovi Star
2017: Montenegro’s Slavko Kalezic
2019: France’s Bilal Hassani
2021: Russia’s Manizha

Least Bothered by the Results (Wiwi Jury to decide)

Eurovision is serious business, with over 161 million people tuning in to watch Europe’s largest televised entertainment event. And yet every year some contestants tune out all the pressure and just show up and do their thing. We salute those acts who don’t let the drama get them down and know they have worth regardless of the outcome.

Previous winners:

2013: The Netherlands’ Anouk
2014: France’s Twin Twin
2015: Austria’s The Makemakes
2016: Georgia’s Nika Kocharov and the Young Georgian Lolitaz
2017: Portugal’s Salvador Sobral
2021: United Kingdom’s James Newman

In my opinion… Best Choreography, best message and most recognised…definitely Serbia. I mean Konstraktas performance on stage and the whole song…No one has ever seen anything like this before at ESC. She has so much potential. The Lyrics of her song, you should translate it. This is real Art, this is what ESC is all about, this is something that should make us think. All of her songs, and Zemlja Gruva’s too. If you ask me, had Ukraine not been there, she should have won. And btw Konstrakta & Zemlja Gruva made real career since then and they’re ruling one… Read more »

Commercial – Sam Ryder. He literally has a single out next week and a collab with David Guetta and Sigala on the way. Best dressed – surprised there was no Ronela, but this has to be Vladana for her dress sense at the pre-shows and Turquoise Carpet. Vocals – Ochman. I’d go Sam again but I want to spread the love. Ochman had great vocals, shame the song was zzzzz. Staging – surprised there’s no Serbia! Ukraine should win this one, the staging was done really well. Choreo – Spain, duh.

Listen wiwibloggs it’ll be daylight robbery if Sam Ryder doesn’t win Mr Congeniality. The man is 100% genuine, is friends with everyone and the only reason Marius Bear was applauded after his result was because Sam went to see him. His press conferences where he said he didn’t believe in the UK stigma made the news.

The rest of the poll is a little pointless as some of the options are silly.

Very interested in the social media one. U.K. and Ireland provided some funny and well delivered videos (like the lost passport), Norway’s parodies of other entry music videos were hilarious, Georgia had great press releases, and Slovenia were particularly receptive to fanart like that I did (which also got endorsements from the acts of Armenia, Belgium, Denmark, Iceland, Latvia, Moldova, Montenegro, Portugal and Switzerland with many more noticing). On the Sunday before heat 1, LPS, whose comic book based music video was done from fanart, did a video posting all the fanart fans did for them.

I’m completely shocked over how Wiwibloggs and eurofans STILL underrate Armenia and Rosa Linn massively! Snap was hands down the most successful song of this years bunch by far, let’s face that. Sad to see that she only is nominated in ONE single category! The person that has decided on the nominations must immediately be replaced, since he/she clearly doesn’t have a clue about how to define success. I mean, if the number 1 most streamed song of this year by far internationally only is nominated in one category, you know you have something fishy about the whole situation…

The song has done well…but that doesn’t change the fact the stage show was messy and she didn’t actually do so well in the final. Most of these polls are about the actual ESC performance, so it makes sense to me.

The stage show was one of the coolest I’ve seen in a long time. The reason why she didn’t do well in ESC was probably because all ordinary wievers who normally would vote for that kind of songs, now voted for Ukraine because of the war. Left were the hardcore Eurofans with their very different and unique taste, who voted for more hyped-up countries like Spain, Italy and Sweden. So Rosa Linn was very much robbed, and that’s why she got such a bad result in the competition. In another year she would come top 5 easily!

Exactly. The problem is that Eurofans have a very different taste from the ordinary person that listens to music on the top charts. That’s probably why Eurovision is mocked so much in countries like UK and Ireland. If Eurofans had music taste closer to the ordinary music listener, Eurovision would be a even bigger event globally. From the first time I heard Snap, I knew instantly that this is a type of song that ordinary music listeners would love. I knew also it would be underrated A LOT by Eurofans. And I got both thinks right. We all need to… Read more »

Eurovision is mocked by people in the UK who haven’t watched it in 30 years. SNAP is good and I get why it’s popular but I don’t see it at the top of the UK charts unlike in other countries. The “High and Fast” version is about 20 times more popular on TikTok than the normal version. I’m sure next year you’ll get people speeding up songs to see what one’s sound best.

I mean? Sam charted back in May with 4 weeks in the top 10 , Space Man was #1 on Apple Music, #1 on iTunes for a good while and his Extended Play was #1 after the contest. Space Man is certified BPI Silver in the UK with over 200,000 units sold. This was a long time before Rosa Linn appeared. Sam is a national treasure here nobody knows Rosa Linn lmao. The UK charts move quickly it’s hardly a fair comparison.

Space Man peaked at #2 and in a normal week would’ve been #1 (without Harry Styles). SNAP peaked at #26. Last week it dropped slightly to #28. It’s not as popular in the UK compared to other countries and I’m not really surprised. It doesn’t sound our like chart music.

Rosa Linn has fared better in our charts than Dadi Freyr did – remarkable considering SNAP was only 20th in our tele vote, and the only times U.K. has voted for Armenia when their entry has taken to the stage has been in semi finals. I can see why SNAP would fare better in the charts and Spotify than in the ESC, as a lovely but low-impact song bunched between several impactful ones.

How much recognition do you want? Sam’s record label love him and they are working hard to establish his career and they’ve done a fantastic job. It’s crazy how much he’s done since Eurovision. He doesn’t need to please the local trolls who think he only has Space Man.

The reporter at Boardmasters was so impressed on Saturday he wrote a whole article about Sam within an hour.

Chanel could’ve been the most likely to succeed commercially, but her management failed her.

She should’ve released a follow-up single as soon as Eurovision ended as she was in the spotlight all over Europe at the start of the Summer. She probably still has time to succeed commercially, but it isn’t looking well at all, which I’m really upset about!

m\ny options were fails like best dressed Norway? or props Azerbaijan? Where is the UK? They had the biggest props.

In general this year was lukewarm. I;d say Sam Ryder has the best chances to pursue a career compared to other acts. Chanel’s management has disappointed me as she went missing after ESC. Rosa Lynn’s success will be shortlived in terms of career. The song is the biggest ESC2022 hit without a doubt but i don’t see her becoming big.

Whilst Rosa Linn’s song is recognisable to most people, her image/brand isn’t. Chanel on the other hand, she’s memorable. She’s got the marketing and branding down, we all know her for her dancing, costumes… etc. That’s what makes an artist successful. So in the long run, Chanel might be more successful.

I interpreted the most commercial success award as honoring longevity. Obviously Rosa Linn has the hit of the year, but Mahmood and Blanco will be mainstays of the Italian music scene for years to come. Sam has all the ingredients to succeed if his next couple singles can establish him in the UK. Chanel’s window might be closing, but her next single could save her.

Although not options, Lum!x could easily release another hit and Maro has collaborated with an impressive list of artists that could keep her booked and busy.
