Shiri: 'Eurovision was amazing!'

Posted 25 January, 2010, 10:30

"It was amazing!" Shiri told us when asked about her experience back in 2005. "To perform on this stage, for millions of people, it was very exciting."
She remembers that she wanted to do her best as her career had just started. And she did succeed - a fourth place in the Final is something not many artists all over the world can achieve!
"After the ESC when I came back to my country, it was amazing. Everybody wanted to hug me, kiss me and tell me they're so proud of me," she laughed.
Take a look at our interview below, where you can see what she talks about her dress back then, why did she perform her entry Hasheket Shenish'ar partly in English, when will she release her new album and of course, Israel's participant for Oslo - Harel Skaat. As a remark for the last part - "He's the best choice!" Shiri told us for starters. Also see how well did she do in our traditional Eurovision Song Contest quiz!
Shiri Maymon finished fourth in the Final of the 2005 Eurovision Song Contest in Kyiv, representing Israel.
