WATCH: Dare To Dream Of Israeli Stars

Hovi did it! Hovi Star singing about stars with stars twinkling all over the (impressive) Swedish hall has made it through the nail biting semi-final and is firmly in the big show on Saturday night. That’s going to be a particularly big night because for the first time ever, the show will be broadcast in the USA and China.

It’s a tradition, or an old charter, or something: I seem to be the resident Eurovision correspondent here at Israellycool. Which is odd because, not wanting to put too fine a point on it, I’m not actually gay. I’ve no issue with gays, but I’m not one.

Hovi, however, does know he target audience as you can tell from who he quotes at the end:

Nails it! Good luck Hovi on Saturday.

And Australia made it to the final as well. So all the smart arse comments about Israel not really being in Europe can final shift over to working out how Australia gets to play in “Eurovision”.
