Duel 2:

  • Gil Hadash – ‘Show must go on’ (49%)
  • Nofar Salman – ‘Mangina’ (76%)

  1. Yet, I agree with some comments: the song is not very good… ;-(

  2. A surprisingly decent choice from Israel! Definitely in my top 5 so far.

  3. It was my least favourite among the three songs on offer. Not bad at all though.
