A new maximum, 44 representatives was first introduced for the 2021 competition. Prior to that, the number of contestants was 46. This limit may be related to the pandemic.

39 countries participated in Eurovision-2021. If there is a sudden influx of enthusiasm during the 2022 competition and more than 44 countries want to apply, the EBU has a plan. In particular, priority will be given to those countries that have participated most frequently in the previous five competitions.

As it was reported, Italian band Måneskin won the Eurovision 2021, which ended in the Netherlands’ Rotterdam on May 23. The band scored 524 points. This means that the 2022 Eurovision will take place in Italy.
