Eurovision Intrigue

Question: What could possibly make the usually dull* Eurovision song contest more interesting than the threat of Lebanon withdrawing over Israel’s participation?**

 

Answer: France being represented by an Israeli!

Israeli-born singer Ortal has been chosen to represent France in the upcoming Eurovision song contest in Kiev on the 21st of May.

 

The 26 year-old Ortal, who moved to France at a young age, has a cross-cultural musical style, which combines rhythm and pop. Her cheery “Chacun pense soi” (Everyone thinks of themselves) will provide France with its first upbeat entry in many years.

 

The singer has performed with various groups from the age of 16. By participating in the French national final of the Eurovision Song Contest selection, she hoped to reach a wider audience.

Of course, this poses a huge dilemma for the French. Do they support their representative, and thus go against their Jew-hating instincts? Or do they embrace their true selves, vote against her, and thus sabotage their chance of winning? 

 

The intrigue is killing me!

 

* except for the odd performance by Israeli transsexuals, or bisexuals waving Syrian flags and performing suggestive acts with cucumbers.

 

** How come whenever Israel and Lebanon are mentioned in the same sentence, the notion of withdrawal is also discussed?
