Semi-Final 1 of Eurovision 2022 started with a “Sekret” as Albania’s Ronela Hajati twerked in the name of love. It ended with Armenia’s Rosa Linn singing in a house made of paper, symbolising the inner thoughts and worries that keep her up at night. In between, we saw grown Latvian men singing about eating salad, Austrians performing inside an industrial-sized halo and a pair of yellow wolves from outer space (via Norway) telling us to feed grandma a banana.
Seventeen sang, but when the results were tallied only ten made it through to Saturday night’s grand final.
