  2. This is the best result for the United Kingdom since their second place in 1998!
  3. This is the best result for Spain since 2nd place in 1995!
  4. Spain has recieved televtore points from all countries except Italy.
  5. This is the best result for Greece since 2013!
  6. The United Kingdom has made an impressive step forward: from last place (with 0 points) in 2021 to second place in 2022.
  7. Serbia has entered the top 5 for the first time since 2012!
  8. Germany finished in the bottom 2 for the 6th time since 2015.
  9. 8 countries have failed to receive more than 10 points from the public vote: Iceland(10), France (8), Germany (6), Czech Republic (5), Belgium (5), Azerbaijan (3), Australia (2), Switzerland (0).
  10. 3 countries have failed to receive more than 10 points from the national jury: Iceland(10), France (9), Germany (0),
  11. For the first time since 2016, the host country didn’t end up in the bottom 6 of the table. This time it’s Italy, ending in 6th place.
  12. This is the 2nd time Portugal has managed to enter the top 10 in the modern era (the other time was in 2017 when they won).

  15. Serbia was the only ex-Yoguslavian country to qualify for the final!
  16. The Netherlands and Australia ended up in 2nd place in their semi-finals, but failed to reach top 10 in the final. I suppose that their challenging running order in the final prevented them from ending in the top 10.
  17. Czech Republic ended up in 4th place in the semi-final, but ended in 22nd place in the final.
  18. Due to disorders in jury voting, the EBU used a statistical aggregation of votes instead of jury vote for the following countries: San Marino, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Romania, Poland, Montenegro.
