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

English (Original)

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…

French

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…
