The European public rewards the Kalush Orchestra with Stefania. Winners announced, even morally. The message that Europe is sending is that of support for Ukraine. Who jumped in the head with the vote from home and wins theEurovision 2022 with 631 points. Because that of the quality juries of the various countries had temporarily placed Great Britain in the lead with Sam Ryder and his Space man. Which comes in second place with 466 points. Third, undeservedly, Spain.
Nothing to do for Mahmood And Blanco. Which pay for a performance that is a bit subdued compared to what we are used to. But, and we say this not out of patriotic spirit, Shivering is a great song. For them only a sixth place. But here are the highlights of the evening.
WATCH HERE THE PHOTOS AND VIDEOS WITH THE HIGHLIGHTS OF THE FINAL
Laura Pausini sings in all languages
The Eurovision 2022 final began on the notes of Give peace a Chance from John Lennon, sung by Mika together with the entire audience of the Pala Olimpico in Turin. But then she was Laura Pausini to warm those present and who was at home. Singing in Italian, English, French and Spanish. In a riot of bright colors – from white to red to blue to yellow – changes of clothes on stage and successful hits such as Loneliness, I sing and the last single, Box.
The reduced Maneskin show about to go to Cannes 2022
So much waiting for the Maneskin, triumphs of the last edition. They present the new song, Supermodel. Which divided the fans so much for the most pop turn of the Roman band. Due to injury, Damiano cannot do his usual show. But the performance doesn’t lose in power. The 4 boys then mention If I can dream. The song that Baz Luhrmann wanted in the soundtrack of Elvis. His biopic on the king of rock which will be presented in a few days at Cannes 2022.
It follows Gigliola Cinquetti. Which returns to Esc 58 years later with I’m not old enough. The song that he brought in in 1964 and with which he won the event. The Pala Olimpico sings with her.
Mika’s colorful show and Samantha Cristoforetti’s greeting
While Europe and Australia are called to vote, there is also time for the performance of Mika. A medley of his achievements. Such as Grace Kelly. In addition, he sings the single for the first time Yo Yo. An exhibition by the international artist that he is. A lot of those who are in the race tonight should be taking notes.
The greeting of Samantha Cristoforetti from the International Space Station. Even from up there you can watch the Eurovision Song Contest 2022.
The songs of Eurovision 2022: from Mahmood and Blanco to Ukraine
Czech Republic: We Are Domi – Lights Off. The song takes: we dance, we sing. And she knows how to stand on stage.
Romania: WRS – Llámame. Those who don’t like the genre find it unbearable.
Portugal: MARO – Saudade, Saudade. Elegant and powerful: it hits the heart.
Finland: The Rasmus – Jezebel. I’m head and shoulders above the majority of those here. She sees and feels, despite the yellow raincoat and balloon being a bit creepy.
Switzerland: Marius Bear – Boys do cry. The voice is spectacular, the song much less.
France: Alvan & Ahez – Fulenn. Definitely an original choice that of our cousins to send this duo singing in Breton …
Norway: Subwoolfer – Give that wolf a banana. Impossible and leave you speechless. In full Eurovision style. Sublime.
Armenia: Rosa Linn – Snap. She is good, but it is something already heard.
Italy: Mahmood & Blanco – Chills. We suspend the judgment: we are biased (we had already cheered for them in Sanremo 2022).
Spain: Chanel – SloMo. Classic Spanish dance track. Nothing original. (“It’s Jennifer Lopez’s discount store”. Cit. Malgioglio).
Netherlands: S10 – De diepte. She sings in Dutch, but her message comes loud and clear.
Ukraine: Kalush Orchestra – Stefania. Winners announced, even if only morally.
The songs of Eurovision 2022: from Germany to Great Britain
Germany: Malik Harris – Rockstars. Difficult to sing after the Ukrainians: it appears softer than it could be.
Lithuania: Monika Liu – Sentimentai. Difficult to get passionate about the song. But she is among the most elegant on stage.
Azerbaijan: Nadir Rustamli – Fade to black. Intense and engaging.
Belgium: Jérémie Makiese – Miss you. In another context it would be a wonderful song.
Greece: Amanda Georgiadi Tenfjord – Die together. A song that touches the heart.
Iceland: Systur – Með hækkandi sól. The Abba in the cowboy hats. But they are cute (considering they are three sisters and one brother).
Moldova: Zdob si Zdub & Advahov Brothers – Trenuletul. Unexplained: in full Eurovision style.
Sweden: Cornelia Jakobs – Hold he closer. She had convinced us from the first listening.
Australia: Sheldon Riley – Not the same. He’s good, but the song just doesn’t work.
United Kingdom: Sam Ryder – Space man. Both he and the song work. We will hear about him!
Poland: Ochman – River. He is good, but we heard better tonight.
Serbia: Konstrakta – In corpore sano. The real question is: why is he in the final?
Estonia: Stefan – Hope. It certainly deserves more than it will reap.
