Eurovision 2019: Israel Drawn 14th

Israel – As delegations meet in Tel Aviv to prepare the next edition of the Eurovision Song Contest, the host country drew its spot in the final in order to keep fairness, since the producers of the show get to do the draw now. “Home” performed by Kobi Marimi will perform 14th in the final!

Irony? The head of delegation of Cyprus, Evi Papamichael, was designated to draw the Israeli spot, under the supervision of Eurovision headmaster Jon Ola Sand. The host country, who wanted to reveal last and officially did (last night at 20:00 CET) though the entry leaked in the afternoon before Malta’s and Armenia’s, will open the second half of the 26 entries to be performed in the final and go at 14th.

Hard to say how much that can influence the outcome, though opening a half is never really good, especially if a song considered a contender gets to close the first half!

  1. Hello, guys!

    I am off to vacation for 3 weeks :-) :-) :-) and will finally be able to do my ESC 2019 loose ends.
    I have been following some of the national finals, but didn’t have time to really make up my mind on NF songs.

    Here is group ranking (in 7 categories), I need more time to do my individual ranking.
    My taste (again) is different from most of people, but as we said many times – let’s celebrate diversity :-)

    So, here it is (I ranked countries in alphabetical order within each category):

    AVERAGE —– everything else
    AWFULL —– noone

  4. Lyrics of Latvia 2019:
    [Verse 1]
    It was a lonely night
    No stars were shining, there was no light
    One troubled thought broke through
    And colored my world so blue

    Lo-o-o-o-ove, where are you?
    Lo-o-o-o-ove, I need you
    Lo-o-o-o-ove, all night through
    Where are you, my love? Oh

    [Verse 2]
    I travelled through the time
    It felt for me like doing a crime
    My mind did crazy things
    Imagination opened their wings

    A river dark as cold
    It took me far away from the shore
    Please come to me ’till sunrise
    And take me back to my paradise

    Lo-o-o-o-ove, where are you?
    Lo-o-o-o-ove, I need you
    Lo-o-o-o-ove, all night through
    Where are you, my love? Oh
    Lo-o-o-o-ove, where are you?
    Lo-o-o-o-ove, I need you
    Lo-o-o-o-ove, all night through
    Where are you, my love? Oh
