Five direct finalists, four winners of the semi finals, and the winner of the “Last Chance” are all going head-to-head in the MGP final, where the winner will be chosen in not one, not two, but three rounds of voting! After all 10 acts performed, first we will find out which acts made it to the top four. These four will then face a second vote, to select the top two. And finally, in this head-to-head, the two acts will face a final televoting round, where the winner, and the successor of TIX will be selected.

Only 10 minutes after the Polish final starts, at 20:10 CET it’s time for Dora 2022! 14 acts are going to hit the stage on the Croatian seaside in Opatija, hoping to be the one to represent their country this year in Turin. The winner of Dora will be decided by a mix of televoting and regional jury votes. There are going to be 10 regional juries, each consisting of three people: one HRT music employee, one member of the Croatian Composers’ Association and one member of the Croatian Music Union. The televoting will be counted proportionally to how many televotes each song has received. You can let us know who your favorites are by voting right here:

Croatia’s northern neighbor, Slovenia, starts the final of EMA 2022 only 10 minutes after Dora, at 20:20 CET! A total of 12 acts that qualified from the two semi finals will compete once again, in order to win the hearts of the juries and the public, and be the one to represent Slovenia in Turin. The voting rules here are a bit different to the rules in the semis. This time six thematical juries (OGAE Slovenia, Songwriters, Radio personalities, Television personalities, Music performers and International artists) with five jury members in each will individually vote for their favorites, and this will represent 50% of the final result. The other 50% will come from the public, but the points coming from the public will be set (72 points for the winner, 60 for the runner-up, 54 for the third most voted, and down to 6 points for the last placed act), not proportional. Let us know which are YOUR personal favorites by voting in our poll right here:

We are ending the week with the same show we started it with – “Una Voce Per San Marino”! The Grand Final of this competition will start at 21:00 CET on Saturday night, where the nine winners of the Emerging Artists’ Final from the night before will face nine Established Artists who were internally selected.
