Eurovision Song Contest 2022 got its winner in May and we’re more than sure, that you re-watched all the favourite performances several times already. But since the world changed due to the pandemic, you might remember hearing a word of two, about the live-on-tape performances. They have been created in case the artist couldn’t travel to Turin. Luckily all of them performed their songs live on stage in Turin, but yet we’re in for a treat, because live-on-tapes will be shown tommorow.
How does a Live-On-Tape look?
Aside from a set of basic guidelines to ensure fairness, each broadcaster has the freedom to create a performance they are proud of, and which they feel will best represent their song. As a result of such potential visual disparity, not only do the Live-On-Tape performances shine a whole new light on each of our favourite songs, they also showcase a further dimension to the creative talents of our competing artists and delegations. That’s why we are now releasing the 2022 Eurovision Song Contest Live-On-Tapes – to celebrate the hard work and creativity that went into producing them, and to give viewers a new visual form through which to enjoy the music of this year’s Contest.
Where, how and when?
Over ten days, commencing on Tuesday 14 June, Eurovision.tv will be releasing the Live-On-Tape performances on the official Eurovision Song Contest YouTube channel. A small number of broadcasters have elected not to have their Live-On-Tape performances released, and so we can continue to remember them as was initially intended – performed on the Eurovision stage from the PalaOlimpico in Turin!
