Likely Televote Appeal
Likely Jury Appeal
Having drawn 14th it will surely leave them in a fight for last place in the final.
This year’s hosts, Israel, have released Kobi Marimi’s song, Home.
Home is the sort of song a host nation sends to Eurovision when they have zero ambition to win again. In Kobi they have a great vocalist who has a pleasant if not rather insipid Josh Groben-inspired ballad.
Israel needed to be drawn 20th-26th in the running order to earn any recognition. Having drawn 14th it will surely leave them in a fight for last place in the final. But then I can’t say it isn’t deserved given the distinct lack of any reason to vote for it.
