Which city will host Eurovision 2022?

EUROVISION 2021 saw Italy, represented by rock band Maneskin, secure their first victory for more than thirty years.

And now Italy have revealed where they're planning to hold the iconic competition in 2022.

Which city will host Eurovision 2022?

The competition – which is always held by last year's winning nation – is heading to the Northern Italian city of Turin for 2022.

Turin, which is located in the northern region of Piedmont (not far from the border with France), is overlooked by the Alps.

It will be the third time Italy has held the Eurovision competition – having played host twice before in 1965 and 1991.

It's the first time the competition has been held in Turin.

In 2021, Eurovision arrived in Rotterdam in The Netherlands after a hiatus of a year due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Who were the other frontrunners to host Eurovision 2022?

Rock band Maneskin snatched victory with their song Zitti e Buoni, who won them an impressive 524 points – but France wasn't too far behind.

Represented by Barbara Pravi, a 28-year-old singer songwriter, who sung 'Voila', France came in a close second with 499 points.

Taking bronze was Switzerland, who finished with 432 points.

The UK wasn't nearly as successful, however – in fact, James Newman's Embers failed to win a single point for the nation.

It was the second time the UK dramatically flopped at the contest having also come dead last in 2019.

When does Eurovision 2022 start and how can I watch it?

Eurovision week 2022 will kick off with the first semi final on May 10, 2022 – with the second semis airing two days later.

The grand finale will air on May 14, 2022 at 9pm, CEST (7pm in the UK).

The contest will be shown live on BBC One, with commentary usually provided by comedian and commentator Graham Norton.

Clips of the performances will also be uploaded to Eurovision's officialYouTube channel, meaning fans can relive their favourite acts whenever they like.
