Tel Aviv Calling: Update
This year the red carpet is going to be orange! On May 12th, the stars will attend the Opening Ceremony of the Song Festival at Habima Square, which is near Israel's National Theater. All delegations arrive in limousines and after a while they will go on and enjoy an entertaining opening show.
This year the interval acts will incorporate an element in the performance dedicated to the long history of the competition. Previous participants from different participating countries will also appear during this act. But they will let them perform in a new way: the returning participants will not perform their own songs.
Eurovision winner Conchita Wurst (Austria) will sing the song "Heroes'' from the 2014 Eurovision winner Måns Zelmerlöw's.
When it’s his turn, Måns Zelmerlöw (Sweden) will sing the song "Feugo", originally from Eleni Foureira.
Eleni (Cyprus) will sing the song "Dancing Lasha Tumbai", originally from Verka Serduchka.
Verka (Ukraine) will sing "Toy", the song that won the festival last year.
The 1979 winner Gali Atari Eurovision (Israel) will also participate in this entertaining act but what she will perform remains unknown.
Last but not least - Madonna.
Although no formal conformation was given, KAN's CEO, Eldad Koblenz, said that the ‘’Queen of Pop’’ will sing two songs in the grand finale. Madonna recently announced that a new album is coming, called Madame X. There is a major chance that a new song from the album will be heard. Today, the album cover for Madame X was released, along the with the tracklist for the new album.
