The 66th edition of Eurovision is close and to warm up the engines, what better way than to know in detail the songs that will be presented at the most anticipated musical contest of the year. Generally there are 41 (this year 40) the songs that choose to win the crystal microphone, but only 26 make it to the grand gala. The reason that this year there are only 40 is that the organization has decided to sanction Russia and eliminate it from the contest for the war in the Ukraine.
As Italy won last year, Turin will be the hostess for this edition of Eurovision in which Ukraine starts as favorite. There is a wide variety of musical styles in this year’s songs: ballads, party songs, reggaeton, synth pop, but, above all, folklore stands out, an invitation to return to the origins.
Like every year, the Eurovision organization facilitates the song list on spotify for eurofans and the public to listen to the candidates for the Crystal Microphone.
