The Eurovision Song Contest 2022 performances are over for another year, and it was an absolute rollercoaster.
From Ukraine’s Kalush Orchestra to UK icon Sam Ryder, there was plenty to write home about from Pala Olimpico in Turin this year.
Moldova thrilled fans with one of the most bizarre folk songs ever, while Sweden’s act proved massively popular in the stadium.
The Rasmus returned to the international stage giving Pennywise vibes, and we’re pretty sure Ben Adams of A1 joined Subwoolfer for the brilliant Give That Wolf A Banana.
In case you need a refresher, here are all the performances from this year’s Eurovision.
Czech Republic: We Are Domi – Lights Off
Czech Republic kicked things off with their synth-heavy track Lights Off, complete with, well, a lot of lights.
The catchy chorus is guaranteed to get stuck in your head, but starting first in Eurovision is always tricky.
Romania: WRS – Llámame
Romania’s performance featured an astounding Latin dance and some very shiny trousers.
The upbeat track was made all the more enthusiastic by WRS encouraging the crowds to sing along the whole time.
Portugal: MARO – Saudade, Saudade
Portugal hopefuls Maro gave a beautifully emotional performance, with the crowds lifting their phones and waving their flashlights to add to the already haunting atmosphere.
The all-female choir finished to massive cheers and applause.
Finland: The Rasmus – Jezebel
Finnish rock legends The Rasmus made their return to the international stage with anthem Jezebel.
A homage to a ‘killer shark in heels,’ lead singer Lauri gave serious Pennywise vibes on stage as he brought major energy to the stadium.
Switzerland: Marius Bear – Boys Do Cry
Switzerland’s Marius Bear commanded the stage giving pure Randy Newman vibes with his slow and emotional song Boys Don’t Cry.
The track, which wouldn’t be out of place in a Toy Story movie, was a solid performance in a ballad-heavy competitio.
France: Alvan & Ahez – Fulenn
France stormed the stage with the intense Fulenn, the stage behind them covered in swirling Celtic symbols.
Alvan & Ahez’s tribal song was a unique one in this year’s competition, standing out from the calmer ballads.
Norway: Subwoolfer – Give That Wolf A Banana
Give That Wolf A Banana was a massive hit among Eurovision fans from the beginning.
It proved just as popular in the stadium on Saturday, as the anonymous, costumed Subwoolfer drove the crowd wild with their bizarre novelty song.
Armenia: Rosa Linn – Snap
Armenian act Rosa Linn performed acoustic ballad Snap to a backdrop of a paper-covered bedroom.
As she sang, Rosa pulled sheets of paper off the wall to reveal the lyrics, giving serious teenage-diary vibes to the performance.
Italy: Mahmood & Blanco – Brividi
Mahmood & Blanco performed in their home country of Italy in the hopes of winning the Eurovision two years in a row with their song Brividi.
