Baby
Sometimes love can bring you down
But, honey
Keep your head up
Keep your head up
Keep your head up
Remember who you are

You can call me crazy
Or just call my name
You can say that I'm stunning
It's not a shame
'Cause I know I am
I know I am, hah
'Cause I know I am
I know I am
I like this attitude
I like the game
You can say that I'm brave
I'm never the same
'Cause I know I am (I know I am)
I know I am (I know I am)
'Cause I know I am (I know I am)
Hah, I know I am

Baby, come with me, follow me
Tell me if we can take it to the floor
(Oh-ooh, oh-ooh, oh-ooh, oh-ooh)
I'm the fire, the power
And if you're asking
I was gonna take it all (All, all)

You know I am
You know I am
'Cause I na-na-na know I am, am
And no one brings me down
I'm gonna take the crown
Give it to me now

I'm shameless and I'm spotless and I'm flawless
Always take it up 'cause I'm a winner, I don't want less
Going for the things I should and maybe I'm ferocious
Making you the one I want and I'm not even topless (Be cautious)
It's going down for real
Twenty twenty-two, let's seal the deal
(Middle East) Is the new sex appeal
Bam, bam, this is how it feel

Baby, come with me, follow me
Tell me if we can take it to the floor
(Oh-ooh, oh-ooh, oh-ooh, oh-ooh)
Ooh, I'm the fire, the power
And if you're asking
I was gonna take it all (All, all, all)

You know I am
You know I am
'Cause I na-na-na know I am, am
And no one brings me down
I'm gonna take the crown
Give it to me now

Baby
Sometimes life can bring you down
But I'll remember
To always keep my head up
'Cause no one brings me down
I'm gonna take the crown
Give it to me now​

not belgrade
This went from 3rd to about 30th in my ranking after the revamp. Serious downgrade.

The fan cracking noise was the best part, how could they get rid of that????

Performance @ Israel Calling

Michael is just born for the stage. I am not sure if this would be the final routine and whether I like it. Maybe not because it will be 4 male dancers with him, so hopefully they will come up with something more interesting.

One of the best vocalists for the night. Love how he did the performance in the colours of the Ukraine flag. Understand, Michael's mom originates from Ukraine. I really hope he will qualify, the GF needs a performance like this.

Great performances, love the Ukrainian colours.

I just think that the original version as well as the previous choreography slapped a but harder on stage (I do like the revamp).

Wait, what?!?

"Due to the strike by the Foreign Ministry, the GSS can not handle the Israeli delegation to the Eurovision Song Contest, and as of this moment, the Israeli delegation will not participate in the 2022 Eurovision Song Contest in Turin."

I apologize if something is wrong in translation, it's Google translate. :)

Okay, that sucks. Thank you for clarifying. I don't think they would have qualified this year anyway but poor Michael Ben David :( I hope he gets a second chance to compete another year.

Wtf. Why? Because it's not safe to travel?

Can't they make use of the live-on-tape performance at least?

"I.M." is one of my favourite entries this year and Michael is such a great performer. Eurovision 2022 will lose much entertainment value if Isreal doesn't compete this year

Surely they should use his live on tape if he can't travel due to travel restrictions
That mayhap could be a possibility. I don't know what the rules says about that. I mean due to the pandemic the EBU made an exception for solutions like that but this is not because of the pandemic, it's because of a strike so I really don't know... Is there anyone in here who got insight in the rules around this?

Are foreign ministries allowed to go on strike?

In Germany, it's forbidden if you work for the state.

Probably. I know Germany has "Beamte" which are not allowed to strike and usual "Angestellte". I don't think it's common in another countries. Teachers, police... they can all strike in Croatia.
