Day two of Eurovision 2022 second rehearsals went out of this world for the penultimate act of semi-final one — Norway’s Subwoolfer. How have things been switched up for “Give That Wolf A Banana”? Let’s find out…

Norway’s Subwoolfer “Give That Wolf A Banana” — Eurovision 2022 second rehearsal

Padraig: Much of semi-final one is easy listening fodder that would blend into the background on a Starbucks soundtrack. So, Norway’s injection of potassium comes as a massive relief. This is easily one of the best rehearsals to date and feels right at home on the Eurovision stage. From the off, the energy levels are kept at 90 and not even the cursed sun can drag it down. The costumes and choreo are almost identical to Melodi Grand Prix, just bigger, better and with pyro. Their vocals are also on point. The wolves are winning this semi’s televote, without a doubt.

It’s all just a bit rubbish, isn’t it? Really hoping this entry crashes and burns as hard as possible…

For people who call it stupid – that’s how you tell people you don’t have humour without actually saying it. On the song though, I hope people realise the “yum yum yum” part isn’t part of the vocals but is part of the instrumentals. They are singing everything else live, you can even see it in the short video, but people will keep saying what they want, if it’s about something they don’t like…

This is a very well-produced number of a silly song with a creepy undertone. It has a chance of winning Eurovision 2022, and this scares me.

I don’t know if it’s just me, but I think people are way too quick to leap to ‘this is a televote winner,’ which I presume is only said because of KEiiNO doing it. I don’t really see much in common with this compared to recent televote winners like Maneskin, Netta, Salvador and Lazarev. I reckon it’s a top 5 televote song though.

I think the problem is that this is a joke entry and nothing more. People realise that, they’re not stupid. People prefer FUN songs, which are actually good to listen to, if you look back over the last few years we have Go A, Keiino, Netta etc placing very high or winning the televote, but those were actually good songs, even though they were fun at the same time. This is a bad song, and despite the effort to bring up the weirdness on stage, I don’t think it will be appreciated by the public or the juries. And even… Read more »

If they win, I get nearly £3000 back! I think they’ll win televote, it’s all down to juries.

Elsie Bay had a better song. Too bad she couldn’t elevate it live even remotely. Subwoolfer were absolutely the best act on the night in their NF.

Brilliant rehearsal. It’s bigger and better than the national final performance. It really could win the televote, not only in this SF but possibly, in the whole competition. It’s so slick and well put together.
I also don’t think juries are going to tank this as hard as people expect.

If this was a couple of years ago before they allowed prerecorded vocals they wouldn’t have a chorus right now hahaa

Nah they sang the Yum Yum parts in a couple of the pre-parties. The GTWAB parts would have been shouted by a back vocalist and they would have been fine.

They would probably have had the dancers shout it.

Maybe they going to win the semi televote, but don’t think juries will place this that high. I can’t with them, they are so funny!

I think they’ll be a jury qualifier. Maybe 8th, 7th ish but still qualifier.
