Eurovision 2022: Grand Final preview


It's finally here – the Grand Final of the 66th edition of the Eurovision Song Contest, live from Turin!

It’s time to find out who will be the successor to Måneskin as the winner of Eurovision.

There are a total of 25 nations competing in the Grand Final and you’ll find them below in the order they will appear during the show, but only one entry can claim the grand prize.

The full running order is as follows:

Australia's Sheldon Riley made it through to the Eurovision 2022 Grand Final. He qualified with his entry 'Not The Same' from semi-final 2.

This is Australia's sixth appearance at a Eurovision Grand Final and fifth qualification from a semi-final. Last year Australia unfortunately had their first non-qualification in Rotterdam.

How can I watch?

The show will be broadcast live. You can tune into SBS from 5:00am AEST on May 15 with the show also available on SBS On Demand. SBS will also be airing a primetime repeat of the broadcast at 7:30pm AEST on Sunday.

How can I vote?

Australian viewers are eligible to vote in the Grand Final. The voting window for the Grand Final opens after the last song has been performed, and ends 15 minutes later.

You can not vote for your own country, so Australian viewers can not vote for Sheldon Riley.

It's really easy. Eurovision’s official voting partner Digame in Germany has created a new online voting platform, exclusively for Australia’s public Eurovision vote. This means there will be no SMS or Televoting in Australia during the live shows. All of Australia’s public votes will be received via the new online system.

The voting portal will be accessed via, hosted by Digame. Votes will be limited to 20 per person and will cost 55c per vote.

You will be able to select which acts you want to vote for and how many votes per act (up to 20 votes total). How you allocate those votes is up to you: you could allocate 20 votes to one act, divide your votes between multiple acts, or just make one vote for your favourite.

Payment options are Google Pay, Apple Pay or Credit Card. Once payment has been received no more votes can be taken from that user. Full voting terms and conditions will be available on the voting platform.
