Pop rock, for sure. Not even necessarily due to Maneskin's win or Blind Channel doing well, but mostly because it seems to be the new trend (the way disco/80s revival happened this past year)

Maybe more experimental/less commercial acts given their good results

However it's gonna be more polished since juries were here, unlike the Helsinki contest.

And for that note, Can Germany get a rock band for 2022? xmetal
A Rock band representing Germany would be insane xheart

I guess the most obvious trend is we might see more rock songs.

I think on top of that we might see more confidence in sending songs in languages other than English, probably not significantly so but more than this year at least.

What if :it: :ch: :sm: will sing in Italian?

Well, Italy singing in Italian wouldn't be a shocker, but this would be nice... it was so refreshing to see Switzerland going with one of their native languages after English for a decade, and I think it's about time San Marino sends an Italian language entry (I still think San Marino should choose a song from Sanremo instead of their current concept).

Imagine this and Raylee with a mullet!

Joking aside, we might see a surge of rock, punk, or 200s pop rock revival, maybeee?

I keep thinking about it, especially pop-rock and pop-punk. The same way that Dua Lipa's success brought us a bunch of 80's inspired pop bangers, next year could be the year where we get Olivia Rodrigo counterfeits.xyaay

Good 4 u is smashing it right now, and I can absolutely see songs like this emerging.
