The Eurovision Song Contest 2022 is the upcoming 66th edition of the Eurovision Song Contest. It is set to take place in Turin, Italy, following the country’s victory at the 2021 contest with the song “Zitti e buoni” by Måneskin.
This will be the third time that Italy hosts the contest (having previously hosted the 1965 edition in Naples and the 1991 edition in Rome), as well as the first EBU event to be held in the country since the last edition of Jeux sans frontières in 1999.
Forty countries will take part in the contest, with Armenia and Montenegro returning after their absences from the previous edition.
Russia had originally planned to participate but was excluded due to its invasion of Ukraine.
