Earlier it also became known that Italian 2020 representative Diodato will perform his Eurovision entry “Fai Rumore”. The contest of 2020 was cancelled due to the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic, so Diodato never got to perform his song on the Eurovision stage; instead the song became a song of hope in the months of lockdown Italy was in during the pandemic.
The Eurovision Song Contest 2022 will be held on May 10th, 12th, and 14th 2022 in Turin Italy. Since Italy won the 2021, and because the country is part of the Big 5, the country immediately qualified for the Grand Final on May 14th 2022.
