Do you have a (lucky) routine before you go on stage?

I don’t have a lucky routine before I go on stage. I'm just thinking how much I love it, and it all goes sweet from that point

Why is the Eurovision Song Contest important for you?

The Eurovision song contest is important to me because it's an amazing venue for a performer. The stage, the talents, this is what we are here for, isn’t it? To reach out to the people around the world and make them hear us.

Lyrics of Golden Boy

Mama, someone broke my heart again
Tell her I don't think I can take it anymore
Mama, someone broke my heart again
Now I'm gonna ease my pain,
Dancing on the floor

Take me out,
I'm not in the mood for a broken heart
Gonna dance tonight, forget her
No, she doesn’t know
What I'm doing on the floor
Did you say hello, my ladies?

Pull me baby, I'm your trigger
You know that my love is bigger
Love, Love, Love
Let the rhythm take us higher
You know when I'm on fire
Check me out (3-2-1- hey!)

I'm a golden boy
Come here to enjoy
I'm the king of fun
Let me show you how we do it
I'm a golden boy
Come here to enjoy
And before I leave
Let me show you Tel Aviv

Hold me tight,
We're not going home tonight
Oh yeah, do you like my dancing?
Pull me baby, I'm your trigger
You know that my love is bigger
Check me out (3-2-1- hey!)

I'm a golden boy
Come here to enjoy
I'm the king of fun
Let me show you how we do it
I'm a golden boy
Come here to enjoy
And before I leave
Let me show you Tel Aviv

This is how we do it…
Maman, quelqu’un m’a encore brisé le cœur
Dis-lui que c’est la dernière fois
Maman, quelqu’un m’a encore brisé le cœur
Je vais danser, tout mettre derrière moi

Sors-moi, pas envie d’une peine de cœur
Ce soir je danse pour l’oublier
Elle ne sait pas que mes move font un malheur
Ladies, c’est moi que vous cherchez ?

Serre-moi baby, je suis ta dynamite
Tu sais que notre amour est plus fort
Love, love, love (love, love, love)
Rendu fou par ces gros beat
J’ai juste le feu au corps
Check me out (3-2-1 hey !)

Un mec en or
Venu ici pour kiffer
Je suis le roi du fun
J’te montre comment c’est fait
Un mec en or
Venu ici pour kiffer
Et avant que j’esquive
Je te montre Tel-Aviv

Tiens-moi fort, on ne rentre pas
Oh yeah, tu aimes quand je danse, Europe
Serre-moi fort, je suis ta dynamite
Tu sais que notre amour est plus fort
Check me out (3-2-1 hey !)

Un mec en or
Venu ici pour kiffer
Je suis le roi du fun
J’te montre comment c’est fait
Un mec en or
Venu ici pour kiffer
Et avant que j’esquive
Je te montre Tel-Aviv

C’est comme ça qu’on fait ici…
