On Tuesday, 10th May, we saw the first set of acts in the Eurovision 2022 line-up take to the stage, with IcelandLithuaniaGreece, and Moldova amongst the 10 countries joining the Big Five in the final.

The second semi-final aired on Thursday 12th May, with Australia, Sweden, Romania, Finland and Poland among the next batch of countries who made it through to Saturday's final.

Luckily for us, the Eurovision odds are in our favour, with the UK's Sam Ryder currently tipped to finish in third place. But he’ll have to beat Ukraine, who are the odds-on favourite to win.

Viewers will get a chance to vote for their favourite act in the final, and this will be added to jury votes. Find out more about how to vote on Eurovision.

RadioTimes.com has compiled everything you need to know about the Eurovision 2022 final, including when it will take place, what time it starts and how to vote for your favourite country on the night.
