The 66th edition of the Eurovision Song Contest will take place this May. One month before the event, the final Eurovision 2022 winner predictions were out. Check them out along with the running order of two semi-finals of the most popular singing contest in Europe. 

Eurovision is always a big event and this year is not an exception. In 2022, the ESC will take place in Turin, Italy, following Måneskin’s victory last year. The grand final is scheduled for May 14, while two semi-finals take place on May 10 and May 12 respectively. The running order of all participating countries is already out. Here it is:

Semi-Final 1: Albania, Latvia, Lithuania, Switzerland, Slovenia, Ukraine, Bulgaria, Netherlands, Moldova, Portugal, Croatia, Denmark, Austria, Iceland, Greece, Norway, Armenia.

Semi-Final 2: Finland, Israel, Serbia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Malta, San Marino, Australia, Cyprus, Ireland, North Macedonia, Estonia, Romania, Poland, Montenegro, Belgium, Sweden, Czech Republic.

The “Big Five” (the UK, France, Germany, Spain, and Italy as the host country) will not compete in the semi-finals. Traditionally, they join the ten best-ranked entries from each semi-final in the grand final. Let’s see which countries have the best winning chances according to online betting sites in Italy in 2022.

Eurovision 2022 Winner Predictions: Italy For The Win Again?

Last year’s triumph of the rock band Måneskin is not the reason for Italy to stop. The country will be a serious threat to other favorites again as it is going to send Mahmood and Blanco to Turin in May. Currently, the bookies from 22Bet give the duo the second-best odds to win Eurovision 2022.

Mahmood is already familiar to Eurovision fans. In 2019, he represented Italy with the song “Soldi”, finishing in second place. The winner of that year was Duncan Laurence’s hit song “Arcade”. Blanco, on the other hand, is a fresh face for the European audience but not for Italians. This singer and rapper became a rising star in his home country after his debut album and songs from it reached #1 on Italian charts. 

Rock Legends Can Bring The Next ESC to Finland

Finland has placed a big bet on Eurovision 2022. This year, the country will be represented by one of its biggest stars. The Rasmus is a rock band that is well-known in Europe for their songs “In The Shadows”, “Sail Away”, “Livin’ In A World Without You” and way more. In February 2022, “Jezebel” entered the list of their biggest hits when it became Finland’s choice for the Song Contest in Turin.

As soon as The Rasmus announced their participation in the 2022 UMK, we already knew who would be Finland’s next entry for ESC. Now, we are sure that the band will place high in the grand final if not win the contest. Following the latest Eurovision 2022 winner predictions, The Rasmus is one of the main favorites to bring Eurovision to Finland for the first time since Lordi’s triumph in 2006. Interestingly, Lordi’s winning song was also a massive hard rock hit named “Hard Rock Hallelujah”.

Ukraine Leads All Odds To Win Eurovision This Year

Ukraine’s great odds to win the 2022 Eurovision shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone. Despite all the drama taking place on Ukrainian land, the country’s ESC representatives Kalush Orchestra didn’t withdraw from the contest. The rap band got special permission to leave the country for the contest in May. Hence, the band is tipped to win the ESC in 2022 with 2.20 odds at most online gambling sites in Italy.

Kalush Orchestra’s song “Stefania” wasn’t initially chosen as a Ukrainian entry to Eurovision. It replaced Alina Pash’s “Tini zabutykh predkiv” (“Shadows of Forgotten Ancestors”) after her withdrawal from the contest. Both songs received warm reviews from listeners, so Ukraine had a great chance of winning even before substitution. All in all, no one comes even close to Kalush Orchestra’s odds to bring Ukraine its third victory. Previously, the country won the Eurovision Song Contest in 2004 and 2016.
