Emerging Crisis

First, we lost the final of the Euroleague basketball championships. Now it looks like we are set to flop in the Eurovision song contest.

With just weeks to go before this year’s Eurovision Song Contest, Israel could be facing one of its worst defeats in recent years which may even relegate the country to next year’s semi-final.

 

“Only a miracle, or all the other countries failing to show up may help Israel do well,” says one Israeli fan about the upcoming Eurovision song contest.

 

According to bookmakers, the song Together We Are One by Eddie Butler is a 150 – to – 1 very long outsider. Only Portugal’s song, at 200-to-1, has lower odds.

This year’s entry may do similar and looks set to face a backlash from the Israeli public if it does as badly as predicted.

 

“I have no idea how we could put this through,” one fan said. “It sounds like something out of a second rate fake-Disney cartoon..”

Actually, that is precisely the reason why we put it through – because it does sound like something out of a second-rate fake-Disney cartoon. Just like all Eurovision songs.
