EUROVISION 2019 🇮🇱
According to reports in Israeli media, all of Israel’s former Eurovision winners are set to take part in Tel Aviv. It’s not clear whether this will happen during the Semi-Finals, Grand Final or both. It’s also uncertain when in the show they will perform although there is a rumour of them will form (each one) a duo with a Eurovision winner (in which KAN includes Eleni Foureira too).
Miki and friends will be a concert in which Miki is accompanied by many of his favorite groups and artists. Miki will perform with the singers he has always admired … a gift for him, but also for fans of good music. RTVE will soon inform the cast of artists that will participate in this concert and even the way to get tickets to watch it and live it live.
Dana International also offered support to Kobi ahead of Eurovision 2019 posting the following statement on Instagram: “I was always afraid that my costume would be too exaggerated or too simple and then I would feel irrelevant. And just thinking of sitting at a party on the side when I was dressed like a unicorn or a penguin, I preferred to give up”. But after some inspirational words from the Eurovision 1998 winner Dana International, he has changed his outlook, “I realised that until I was complete with myself, I would never feel comfortable in any disguise. So that’s it, I’ve started thinking about the next Purim costume”.

The Italian tenor Alessandro Safina, thirteenth in the Festivali di Sanremo 2002, spoke recently about the Eurovision Song Contest 2019, giving wide praise to “Scream”, a song that Sergey Lazarev will defend in Tel Aviv on behalf of Russia: “It is memorable. “Sergey has everything to please everyone, not just Russian listeners and viewers,” he said, bemoaning Italy’s recent choices for the Eurovision Song Contest. “Young Italian singers talk about social problems in their songs, but the Italian problems are not very interesting for the rest of Europe. That’s why Scandinavian artists are almost always beaten because they do international music. ”
