The Eurovision Song Contest 2022 is the 66th edition of the Eurovision Song Contest. It is taking place in Turin, Italy, following the country's victory at the 2021 contest with the song "Zitti e buoni" by Måneskin. Organised by the European Broadcasting Union (EBU) and host broadcaster Radiotelevisione italiana (RAI), the contest is being held at the PalaOlimpico, and consists of two semi-finals on 10 and 12 May, and a final on 14 May 2022. The three live shows are hosted by Italian television presenter Alessandro Cattelan, singer Laura Pausini and Lebanese-British singer Mika. Forty countries are taking 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.
