Who won Eurovision 2022? Winner, full results and where UK finished

By Gemma Jones

Eurovision 2021 has come to an end and the winner has been revealed as Ukraine.

In a politically charged final, Ukraine reduced viewers to tears as their Kalush Orchestra plead for help for the country. A vote for Ukraine, in the current climate, certainly feels like an act of solidarity. Ukraine were the competition's favourite to win.

The show also had Sam Ryder do the UK proud as the TikTok star performed his song Space Man. He was our most hopeful act in years and had already amassed 12million followers on the social media app before appearing on the competition.

What are the dreaded nul points?

It is rare that a song fails to receive any points at all, but it does happen. Nul points is when an act receives a score of zero. It happened for the first time in 1962.

Usually, a country gets nul points from either the jury or the viewers, but not from both. However, an overall nul points has been scored once... by the UK, in 2021.

No one received nul points this year, but Germany had a scare after receiving 0 from the jury points. However, they went on to receive points from the viewers.

Where did UK finish in Eurovision 2022?

Ukraine, Azerbaijan, Germany, Belgium, France, Georgia, Austria and Czech Republic all awarded the UK the maximum 12 points in jury points. The UK gave their 12 points to Ukraine.

The UK was in the lead after the jury votes with 283 points. Sweden were in second place with 258 and Spain in third with 231.
