Early this morning the jury show of the Eurovision 2022 Grand Final took place.


These performances are what each national jury vote on ahead of the live show for televoters tomorrow.


The jury show can make or break some contestants, so let's take a look at how the most notable entries went:



Italy

The chemistry and intimacy from Mahmood and Blanco was turned up and rightly. It was vocally their best performance by far. The jury wont ignore this at all. The performance just gives you shivers, and with the crowd singing along makes this performance in Turin extra special.

Now look 'SloMo' doesn't make you think jury type of song, but what Chanel delivers is a phenomenal performance! This is 'Fuego' but next level, on steroids and it works!! Can Spain take the win this year? Who knows. What we do know is Chanel delivers a winning performance which cannot be ignored by the jury!



Greece


Amanda's vocals are impressive and she delivered yet again. She gave a nice big and clear top note at the end. The performance looks haunting and breathtaking. Expect the juries to reward this entry.



Australia

Sheldon took it to the next level delivering a performance with extra emotion! Thankfully this time the microphone stand worked. Australia has really put together a great overall package that the juries would go for.



Poland


Ochman really delivered tonight! Except the jury to reward Poland based on the vocals alone, it was a strong and compelling vocal performance. It is a fantastic overall package. This could be Poland's best result at Eurovision in a while.



United Kingdom

The UK gave an impressive performance with Sam Ryder showcasing his insane vocal range which was on point. He gave it 110%, the camera shots are pretty much there and ready for the Grand Final! The UK really pop in the running order. There are definitely moments here for the juries to latch onto.



Sweden


So much chemistry down the lens from Cornelia tonight. She hit every note and did an extra high note at the end for the juries. A few issues with seeing the stage hand, but that shouldn't affect her jury score.



Switzerland


Switzerland delivered their best performance out of the rehearsals and semi-final show. Marius gave a slightly different yet beautiful vocal arrangement and it worked! Perfect timing as the juries will lap this up!!



Netherlands


Netherlands again delivered their best performance yet. It has totally lifted from the rehearsals and the semi-final. S10 now looks very comfortable on stage and is now giving us that emotion to really make you connect with the song. It is simple yet excellently executed! The audience singing along makes this feel extra special!


Lithuania


In a press conference after her semi-final Monika said she wants to be the President of Lithuania. Well after this stunning performance just give her the title!! This performance couldn't be performed anymore on point!! Monika shines, her vocals shine and the Lithuanian language shines. Mission accomplished.



Could be a struggle with juries


Finland


With so many stronger male vocalists in the mix this entry most likely wont stand out with juries. Finland have struggled vocally throughout the Contest. Except a strong televote though.



Romania


Similar to Finland even though the choreography and energy is great, vocally Romania is not a stand out and will struggle with the juries.
