The rumors aren’t rumors anymore
Eurovision 2022 hosts will be: Laura Pausini, Alessandro Cattelan and Mika
The hosts revealed during the 2nd night of “Festival Di Sanremo 2022“.
Tonight we have started the 100 days count until the grand final of Eurovision 2022
Laura Pausini, became well known in Italy in 1993 when she won the newcomers category in “Festival Di Sanremo 1993“. Since then, she has released 14 studio albums. In 2021, she won 4 Latin Grammy awards, a Grammy Award, and a Golden Globe, and received historic Oscars.
Laura Pausini reacted:
I am happy that Eurovision is finally back in Italy and honored to lead such an important event, together with my friends Mika and Ale!
Together we want to show Europe and the world our extraordinary country. For me, 2022 has started with new music and this fantastic appointment. I want to face Eurovision, a musical event par excellence in Europe and one of the most important television shows in the world, with the same energy that has accompanied me throughout my career. We are ready … and, indeed, we can’t wait!’
Alessandro Cattelan is one of the familiar faces in Italian Television. He has been a TV presenter for almost 20 years. Between TV shows he has hosted, we can count “X-Factor Italy“.
Alessandro Cattelan reacted:
It is an honour to have been called upon to host Eurovision 2022, it is one of the most followed and well-known shows in the world and this year organising it in Italy represents a great opportunity and a historic event for our country.
I have known Laura Pausini and Mika for some time, we have already worked together and we have always had a lot of fun. And I’m sure it will be the same this time too
Mika is a British-Lebanese singer. He has released 8 albums so far. In recent years, he has moved to Italy. Mika is one of the mentors in “X-Factor Italy” – season 4
More than ever I believe in the importance of an international community, in our common values. I believe in the union of people, in breaking down the walls to celebrate our similarities as much as our differences. We can do it thanks to music, which is the most universal form of expression. Eurovision is this and so much more!
I’ve been watching it since I was a kid, the whole family would get together for the Grand Final. Once a year, more than 40 countries share the same emotions, regardless of history or the political situation: music unites them. It’s an exciting honor to be one of the masters of the ceremony on these fantastic nights.
Eurovision 2022 will feature 41 participating countries
The shows will be held on the 10th, 12th, and 14th of May 2022
