Eurovision 2022: discover the running order of the 25 candidates

We now know in what order the Eurovision finalists will follow one another, this Saturday evening in Turin. Far from trivial information: the second part of the evening is known to bring luck…

The grand final of Eurovision 2022 is taking shape: the organizers have revealed the order of performance of the 25 candidates who will defend their song this Saturday evening, on the stage of the PalaOlimpico in Turin. A crucial parameter for fans of the competition, because it is often estimated that performing in the second half of the evening increases the chances of winning.

In this sense, France may be starting with a slight handicap. Alvan & Ahez, the group that will defend the tricolor with song Fulenn, will occur in sixth position. The Ukrainians of Kalush Orchestra, great favorites of this 66th edition, will be the twelfth to perform their song. Check out the full running order:

The second part of the evening, coveted grail

Every year, all the participants draw randomly if they will perform during the first or the second part of the evening. It is then the organizers who decide the order of passage within each part, in order to set up a varied show by avoiding that too similar songs are presented one after the other.

As reported by the specialized site wiwiblogs, performing in the second part of the evening – and as late as possible – is considered an advantage. It is believed that this increases the chances of still being present in the minds of the spectators at the time of the vote. But if many winners actually happened in the second half of the evening, the reverse also happens. Salvador Sobral (Portugal) and Duncan Laurence (the Netherlands), winners of the 2017 and 2019 editions, were 11th and 12th.
