Israel’s Eurovision 2017 Entry

Have you ever asked yourself the question, “What could have made Lidia Isac’s ‘Falling Stars‘ work?” Israel has the answer: let them show it Tel Aviv! Here’s IMRI with “I Feel Alive.”

Israel is on a good run of form right now, qualifying for the Grand Prix Final two years running with Hovi Star’s “Made of Stars” last year and Nadav Guedj’s glorious, glorious “Golden Boy” in 2015. As the video for “I Feel Alive” points out, IMRI was a back-up singer for both of those entries.

His song “I Feel Alive,” written by Dolev Ram and Penn Hazut, is loads of fun. If we have any concerns, it’s that high note that he barely makes in the recorded track. That could go off the rails live. Otherwise, we have high hopes that IMRI will keep Israel’s streak going this year.
