boaz mauda to eurovision 2008 for israel


With the 2008 Eurovision Song Contest underway, here’s a song-singer combo to look out for – Israel’s Boaz Mauda singing Ke’ilo Kan (English title The Fire in your Eyes), which was written by international singer and ESC ’98 winner Dana International and Shai Kerem.

I’m drawn to the song, in the same way that I was drawn to Serbia’s winning song last year, Molitva. So drawn that I started learning the song. How’s that for Hebrew (or is it Arabic?) lessons? The singing seemed so heartfelt and the song, a strong, pining ballad. Boaz is easy on the eyes, too. If he sings this well live on the Serbian stage in May, he could be the competition’s dark horse, brooding and ehem, well-bred.




This, along with Norway’s Hold On Be Strong, Sweden’s Hero, France’s Divine, Ukraine’s Shady Lady, and Greece’s Secret Combination are my early top favorites.

    Are you QUITE sure its the song you are drawn to…and not the singer ;-) Just teasing you…I think the contest will be very good this year! I like the Norwegian song, but honestly I don’t think we have a prayer in the big picture (don’t hate me folks!)

    Haha, pepe! Salivate much?

    Haha, DianeCA! But of course! Hahaha. The singer is just a plus factor. Ok, who am I kidding? Hehe. I feel that last year’s contest and the one before that in Greece, were stronger in terms of competing songs. This year there are lots of crazy and senseless entries. But I think Maria will go far in the competition. :)

    I know my wife Diane has a crush on this, but to be honest: I find Melodi Grand Prix a bit boring.

    Great pics though!

    Wishing you a great week ahead :-)
