Eurovision: Slimane, the French Candidate, Trapped by a Question About Israel, Restores the Truth

A few hours before the big Eurovision show, French candidate Slimane was trapped by a video broadcast on social networks. “Do you have a message for Israeli spectators?” asked a journalist to whom he responded with a smile. “No, no, no”, replies Slimane embarrassed, turning his back on him, before escaping. The singer’s entourage claims that he is “devastated” by the interpretation of the sequence (full sequence here).

“In the video, the first question is missing. Asked about the Israeli song and Eden Golan, Slimane says all the good things he thinks of her and that her song is a message of peace. Then, the journalist asks him a second question that he does not understand, because his level of English is not very good. He looks for help, but we tell him that he has to go,” his manager reportedly explained, affirming that the question. cut sequence is dishonest and that Slimane works “all the time with Jews”.

Israel qualified for the final on Thursday evening, after nearly 12,000 people, including activist Greta Thunberg, demonstrated in this city against its participation and in particular in front of the Israeli candidate’s hotel. Eden Golan, 20, delivered an impressive performance despite the considerable pressure weighing on her shoulders, moving from 8th to 2nd place in the bookers’ forecasts.
