125 people have voted across 32 categories, and we are now proud to present the final winners of the TES National Final Awards 2022!
The awards are an opportunity to show some love and appreciation for the songs that we may have lost on our journey through National Final season, but that will remain forever in our hearts, minds and playlists.
All songs that competed in, but did not win their selection were eligible for the categories for each individual show. There are a couple of categories where we honour the winning songs as part of the National Final season, but we’ll be back with our Eurovision Awards later in the summer where we will celebrate these songs even more!
Thank you to everyone who voted! Now it’s time to announce the winners of our final categories in the TES National Final Awards 2022!
