Song Contest: The reworked song was approved in Israel

The Eurovision Song Contest organizers approved the reworked Israeli song, the first version of which they found to be too political, according to participating Israeli TV channel Kan. Israel is participating in the competition, the channel announced today, citing the organizers, the European Broadcasting Union (EBU) in Geneva.

The station is one of the participating radio stations in ESC. Israeli participant Eden Golan will perform the rewritten song, now called “Hurricane,” in Sweden in May.

The Kan channel announced that Israeli participant Eden Golan will sing the rewritten song, now called “Hurricane,” on Israeli television on Sunday evening. The song therefore has the same melody as its predecessor, “October Rain”, which was too political for the organizers. According to media reports, the song refers to the massacre committed by the Islamic movement Hamas in Israel on October 7.

Request from the president

According to a statement, the channel changed the content in response to a request from Israeli President Isaac Herzog
after. Israel must raise its voice at a time when those who hate the country are trying to exclude and boycott it, and Herzog called for his country’s participation, according to a statement on the radio.
