Semi-Final 2 of Eurovision 2022: A Big Bag of Ballads, Rock Music, and More!
The wave of rock crested with Måneskin and is now receding. Queer respresentation by Israel raises questions about the perils of excessive self-esteem, and Australia gives us a sad boy song with Billy Porter style. Serbia’s entry achieves cult favorite status, but can it win the competition? We also talk about appropriation and the limits of its appeal.
