The first semifinal of Eurovision 2022 took place Tuesday evening in Turin, Italy, and Rosa Linn, representing Armenia, beat the competition and advanced to the final of this song contest.
According to the rules of Eurovision, only 10 countries from each semifinal book their spots to the final. In the first semifinal, Rosa competed with participants from 16 other countries—with Switzerland, Iceland, Lithuania, Portugal, Norway, Greece, Ukraine, Moldova, and the Netherlands also reaching the final.
The second semifinal of Eurovision 2022 will take place Thursday, after which the full picture of the final will become clear.
The final of this song contest is slated for Saturday.
Rosa Linn is representing Armenia at Eurovision 2022 with her own song, "Snap." The 21-year-old singer, who was born in Vanadzor, Armenia, says that her Eurovision song is a song born as a result of her feelings and a difficult stage, which, according to Rosa, has a positive meaning for her today because those feelings have brought her to Eurovision.
