Czech Republic has the honour of opening the Eurovision final Saturday evening. They will be followed by Romania. To close the party we have Serbia and Estonia in starting positions 24th and 25th. See the full running order for the final.
Some would like to think that it really doesn’t matter, which starting position you have in the final. But, we can’t change the fact that we have to go back to 2003 to find a winning song starting lower than number 10. That year, Turkish Sertab Erener won from #4. We can’t change the fact either that even hosts at press conferences at Eurovision clearly signal that second half is good, reason to be happy, while you offer the artists some sympathy, if they drew first half.
As soon as the last 10 qualifiers had been placed in either first or second half, the producers started working on the final running order. Let’s take a look at their work. Who got a good starting position? Who will struggle to get attention? Below you find the full running order for the final of the 2022 Eurovision Song Contest?
