Israel have a pretty impressive three wins under their belt since they first competed at Eurovision in 1973. This includes back to back victories for Izhar Cohen and the Alphabeta’s ‘A-Ba-Ni-Bi’ in 1978 and Gali Atari and Milk and Honey’s ‘Hallelujah’ in 1979. Their most recent win was when Dana International won in 1998 with Europop anthem ‘Diva’.
Since then they haven’t fared so well with a four year run from 2011 to 2014 where they failed to qualify for the final. Even having Dana International return in 2011 with ‘Ding Dong’ couldn’t get them out of the rut. 2015 saw 16 year old Nadav Guedj win Israel’s Rising Star contest and he was selected to represent his country with ‘Golden Boy’, which resulted in their best outcome in over a decade when it finished ninth. Can they keep this momentum going and propel their 2016 entry even higher into the top ten?
Tonight will see Europe crown the 60th winner of the Eurovision Song Contest. After two semi finals had eliminated thirteen of the competitors on Tuesday and Thursday, we are down to the top 27 who will all perform from 9pm CET tonight. But who will win? We take a look at the main contenders. Continue reading
