Welcome all to Bern, Switzerland. For the first time that a contest has been hosted outside the winning country from the previous contest. Monaco of course won NFAC 21, and chose Switzerland to help host the contest. This is where the idea of the slogan came about “Share The Love”, about sharing all aspects of the contest with the whole of Europe and beyond.

Here is your reigning champion of NFAC,

Here at the PostFinance Arena in Bern, hosting 20,000 fans and delegates, your host …. please welcome Bernard Montiel a French comedian from Monaco, originally from Morocco, so we are truly celebrating sharing the love with many nationalities represented, especially as he will be hosting the Semi Finals with Swiss musician, Mia Aegerter
