Redditvision Song Contest 22 was the twenty-second ordinary and twenty-fourth overall edition of the Redditvision Song Contest. It was hosted by u/ZwissDa2nd in Roseau, Dominica after their win in the previous edition, with the song "Birthplace" by Novo Amor.

The winner was Norway with the song "Tyynysotaa" by Vilma Alina, Nelli Matula, Sini Yasemin & Ida Paul.

Participants

A total of 60 users signed up for the edition. Several countries made their debut, including Botswana, Kosovo, Paraguay and Sri Lanka. Honduras, Mauritius and Micronesia were all due to participate, but did not submit and entry in time. This brought the number of participants down to 57 for the semi-final period.

The edition saw nine new faces compared to edition 21, with three debutants and six returnees. Users u/DylanSlayChallenge, u/DepStrider and u/tabita_surge all made their first ever Redditvision appearance. u/Effy-Was-Taken, u/gavjen, u/Notorious_Park, u/therealmatthewlam, u/throwawayravenclaw all returned to the contest. In addition, user u/DeannaDeesse returned under the account u/Vital_Grace, who also was the only debutant or returnee to qualify for the final.

11 users who were present in the previous edition withdrew. This includes six users that were disqualified for not voting: u/ChocolateDonut1, u/estoniass, u/jq8678, u/Lime_Berry, u/TheDutchDen and u/Tiko_Yates. The remaining withdrawals were u/_xSyracuse, u/genplod, u/homopleyy, u/j_tennant and u/oneleek.

United States withdrew during the semi-finals. Bulgaria, Niue, Northern Ireland, San Marino and Scotland all failed to vote in time in the grand final. Out of those, Niue was the only country that was participating in the final. They would've placed 12th with 106 points in the final, but due to their disqualification they were all re-allocated to the other entries.
