Luxembourg is once again in the final of the Eurovision song contest thanks to singer Tali. On Friday, she told the Grand Ducal press about her state of mind: fatigue and great joy. “I’m still in shock about making it to the final, but I’m so happy and I want to enjoy the moment, just have fun.” The 23-year-old underlines that her participation, especially after such a long period, has a special meaning for Luxembourg.

When asked how important a good final ranking is to her, Tali responds calmly. “Luxembourg is so small and has not been present for so long (Editor’s note: 31 years) that we do not know who will vote for us. Whatever happens, I am proud of our performance and the hard work we have accomplished. She also expresses herself very positively about her competitors. His favorites: Italy, France, Israel and Switzerland. In this regard, she praises the different musical styles which, according to her, make the competition so special. “It’s so subjective to say who is better and who isn’t. It’s really a question of how many rich friends can pay to vote for you,” she jokes.

In addition to the musical aspect of the competition in Malmö, the Luxembourg candidate says she has made many friendships, notably with Celia, from Cyprus, and Eden from Israel. She speaks openly about the political tensions that Eden experiences due to her origins and says she understands what the Israeli singer is experiencing. “It makes me really sad to see that people are so mean to Eden just because she represents Israel,” says Tali.

One of the particularities of the representative of the Grand Duchy is her long braids, which she considers a symbol of strength and resistance to traditional images of femininity. “They are the opposite of the sexy, loose hair that many expect. I like to play with expectations,” she says. To conclude, Tali talks about the support she receives from her team and her family. She says she is grateful for the experience gained in Malmö and looks forward to the future with optimism, particularly for the promotion of local talent in Luxembourg.

“I couldn’t be more proud of what we accomplished together. “I saw all the wonderful comments and support, and it really made me realize that I was doing exactly what I needed to do,” she said. She also underlines the indispensable role of Luxembourg in its success: “Without my homeland, I would not have been able to achieve it.”
