(3 votes)

Erev Tov ! Israeli broadcaster IBA just hosted their selection for this year’s edition of the Eurovision Song Contest in a TV studio. Present in the studio with the presenter Mei Finegold who was chosen internally by IBA. The singer participated in Israel's version of Pop Idol and she finished in a respectable 3rd place.

Israel’s selection commenced with 78 songs which were submitted to IBA and which were reduced to 10. A professional jury chose the final 2 to go alongside Mei’s own song. Israel participated in the Eurovision Song Contest 2013 in Malmö, Sweden. Moran Mazor represented Israel with the song Rak bishvilo, which failed to qualify from the second semi-final of the competition, placing 14th and scoring 40 points. This year, unlike 2013, only the general public chose the song which will represent Israel at the Eurovision Song Contest. Israeli will participate in the second Semi-Final of the 2014 Eurovision Song Contest, being held at the B&W-Hallerne on Refshaleøen in Copenhagen on the 8th of May. The 3 songs competing tonight were: 

Nish'eret iti (Staying with me)

Music: Loren de Paz & Chen Metzger Eder 

Lyrics: Loren de Paz

Same Heart

Music & Lyrics: Rami Talmid

Be Proud

Music & Lyrics: Mei Finegold

The winner of the show was Same Heart with 55% of the televote. The song was the hot favourite from the very first start and it is quite good indeed. In the video clip, Mei delivers the song with passion and she transmits anger and a fine rock vibe. Someone has filled Mei’s soul with poison. The video of the song has a Beyonce effect in its choreography and the samurai warrior princess brandishing a sword reminds me of Anna Oxa in Senza Pieta’. The message of the song is clear: Don’t mess with me! The song is bilingual as it has an English part and a Hebrew one. Good luck to Israel.
