ESC 2016: ISRAEL WILL BE IN THE SECOND SEMIFINAL IN STOCKHOLM

May 10 is the Israeli Memorial day Yom Hazikarom that starts at sunset of May 10 and ends with the sunset of May 11. Every now and then it clashes with the Eurovision. That's the case also in 2016 when the semifinal one will be on right at the date. Problem solved as IBA has asked and EBU  has granted that Israel takes part directly in the second semifinal making everybody happy. In the past Israel has had to withdraw or rather not take part at all when this hasn't been possible but that was in the 1980's.... 
Meanwhile Israel wil use again the succesful reality talent show HaKokhav HaBa that gave us Golden boy Nadav Guedj and their first final place in four years and even a top-10 finish. 15 episodes to find the singer and then internal choice of the song like for 2015. Hopefully they can keep up the Good vibes with this method.....
PS: No word yet how Denmark and Norway will be separated for the semifinals like in Malmö? It's surely going to happen again.....
