Icelandic band Hatari finished in 10th place at Eurovision 2019 with their song ‘Hatrid Mun Sigra’. With 232 points, this gave Iceland their best result this decade, but their appearance was not without controversy. The group who were quite vocal about their political opinions regarding the Middle Eastern conflict in the lead up to the Contest, unfurled a Palestinian flag when their televote total was unveiled on Saturday night. This action led to audible boos in the Israeli arena and saw security staff attempt to remove the flag from them.
Now that the two semi finals for Eurovision 2019 have taken place and we know the identity of all 26 finalist, it was time to announce the running order for Saturday’s Grand Final. This will be as follows:
The Eurovision NI World Cup 2019 came to an end this afternoon when the poll for the final closed. The final saw Mahmood from Italy take on KEiiNO from Norway. But who was the winner?
The reigning Eurovision champ Netta Barzilai has released a new single and accompanying lyric video today ahead of her return to the Eurovision stage next week. The song is entitled ‘Nana Banana’ and she will perform it live for the first time at the Eurovision 2019 Final on Friday.
While all the semi finalists have had two rehearsal sessions over the last week, it was the turn of the Big Five countries and host nation Israel to get their first run through earlier today.
