Israel

Artist: Imri
Song: I feel Alive
Odds: $151

Word of the day
נראה טוב - Good looks
Alone are not enough to win Eurovision




After doing his apprenticeship as a backing singer for two years at Eurovision, Imri is now the lead performer after winning הַכּוֹכָב הַבָּא (The Next Star). Not bad for a failure from The Voice.

This song is a typical gay anthem dance track that you would have expected to hear at any Pride after-party around the world for at least the last 10 years. It is a little dated. Even for Eurovision, this is dated. It will get some votes but not many if the odds are to be believed.

Is this song a love song, a stalker song or a victim anthem? Is the subject a narcissist or a reluctantly accepted substitute? English teachers unite and dissect this song for the benefit of disengaged and ungrateful students everywhere. It won’t make them less ungrateful or disengaged but it would give you a sense of achievement, surely.

In 1981 Israel sent an apparently heavily pregnant singer wearing a tent. Tents were the fashion in maternity wear back then. Thankfully fashions change and so do AV equipment. Luckily no one tripped on those cables.
