Eurovision 2018: Previewing the first half of Semi Final 2

With Michael in Lisbon and Mark, Hikaru and Io in Melbourne, it’s time for Eurovision Semi Final 2.

The team preview the first half of this year’s second semi, with a heap of variety to choose from. It’s not a battle to the death like Semi 1, but it certainly has its stand outs.

How is Hikaru a virgin?

What does Michael really think of Julia?

What underlying message is Mark hearing in DoReDos’ song?

Find out in the podcast.

And while you’re here, head down to the poll to vote for your favourite of this half of the semi. If you’re a JOY member, you can also go into the draw for some awesome prizes.

Loving the songs?
