Hopefully More than a Thousand Words
So, it’s been decided. Yesterday the song that will represent Israel in the 2010 Eurovision Song Contest in Oslo was elected — at least officially.
For anyone who saw the show, it’s hard to escape the impression that the song had in fact been elected a long time ago, and that everyone did what they could to push the audience to vote for Milim (“Words”). And they dutifully did.
I hope it’ll do well in Oslo, even though I have my doubts.
Luckily for Israel, even if the song isn’t all that it could be, at least we’re sending the right guy to sing it. The Europeans are already noticing his many talents and in this poll, the aficionados place Harel as number one.
It’s unclear, though, whether it’s the picture or the thousand words that did the trick.
