The competition is being held in Italy, following the nation’s victory at Eurovision 2021 with Måneskin's song "Shut up and good."

The “Big Five”—Germany, France, the U.K., Italy, and Spain—were automatically granted a spot in the 2022 final as they contribute the largest amounts financially to the European Broadcasting Union.

Ukraine’s entry, Kalush Orchestra, thankfully is able to perform amidst the ongoing war against Russia in their homeland. Already their song “Stefania,” which mixes hip-hop with Ukrainian folk music, has more than 5 million views on YouTube and is sure to be a big contender for the win.

Australia has also secured a spot in the final, which may surprise some viewers as it is not a European country.

Australia officially joined Eurovision in 2015 after what was originally supposed to be a one-off performance in 2013. However, the country has been a big player in the competition ever since.

Their best result so far was in 2016, when Australian singer-songwriter Dami Im finished in second place. Of its past seven performances, Australia has finished in the top 10 three times. This year, Australia is being represented by Sheldon Riley, with his track “Not the Same.”
