Morten Thomassen again wrote for us on the 29th place, ISRAEL. ESC Covers google translated from Norwegian to English.
When you have a song called “I’M”, it would be wrong to appear different from who you are.
I think there can be little doubt that Michael Ben David did not play the role of himself to the fullest.
And I think he was a cool guy, reasonably confident and kind of flamboyant.
He also has quite good control of the vocals and also appears charming on the TV screen.
Normally this should have worked well, but it did not, a 13th place which in terms of points was far from the final place.
Now there were two white-clad guys in this semifinal who one might think were fighting for the favor of gays. The one from Australia finished in 2nd place so it is possible to prefer more calm drama than disco-focused drama on the dance floor.
Even though Michael tries his best to be tough and nimble, I feel that the last trick is missing in the performance.
Possibly many thought it was too sweet and kind and you rarely get that combination properly touched in. In terms of points, the 61 points Mr. David got evenly distributed between the two jury groups, but he got points from too few countries for the final place to be able to saved.
This year, our Israeli friends missed the final for the first time since 2014, we can bet that they will correct that mistake next year.
