Space Opera - Catherynne M. Valente

... but for this one I might make an exception. The blurb starts with:


The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy meets Eurovision in an over-the-top science fiction spectacle from bestselling author Catherynne M. Valente, in which sentient species compete for glory in a galactic musical contest—where the stakes are as high as the fate of planet Earth.


That sounds amazing.
