40 nations are taking part in the Eurovision Song Contest 2022. Originally there were 41, but Russia was excluded due to the war in Ukraine. Also not included are Andorra, Belarus, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Luxembourg, Monaco, Slovakia, Turkey, Hungary, Liechtenstein, Kazakhstan and Scotland.
With Israel, Azerbaijan and Australia, however, three non-European countries are again taking part this year.
The five nations Germany, Spain, France, Great Britain and Italy are firmly qualified for the final.
The starting order of the 1st semi-final (May 10th):
Seven starters were eliminated in the first semi-final: Albania, Austria, Bulgaria, Croatia, Denmark, Slovenia and Latvia. The elimination of Albania and Austria came as a particular surprise, both countries were highly regarded, at least by the fans.
The starting order of the 2nd semi-final (May 12th):
The top favorite Ukraine has cleared the first hurdle at the Eurovision Song Contest (ESC): The Kalush Orchestra qualified Tuesday evening in the first semifinals of the ESC in Turin as one of ten countries for the final. The semi-final show was a varied mix of shrill show elements and strong vocal performances.
In addition to the starters from Ukraine, Switzerland, Armenia, Iceland, Lithuania, Portugal, Norway, Greece, Moldova and the Netherlands also qualified.
Since the ESC, which is the world’s most respected music competition, should be strictly non-political according to its rules, Russia’s war against Ukraine played no role in the show in the PalaOlimpico hall. Only the singer of the Kalush Orchestra, Oleh Psiuk, delivered a short message after the performance with the song “Stefania” dedicated to his mother: “Thank you for the support of Ukraine,” Psiuk said at the end of the performance.
It was considered certain that Ukraine would qualify for the final. The progress of the Norwegian band Subwoolfer with the song “Give That Wolf A Banana” was also expected – the singers, who appear incognito with yellow wolf masks, are among the most bizarre starters of this year. The Norwegians, like the Dutch singer S10, are counted among the extended circle of favourites.
