"Israel" Eurovision Song Contest 2010

Posted 13 July, 2010, 7:39

Powered by http://www.eurovision.tv Israel's ballade Milim blew everyone's socks off, explaining Harel Skaat winning every category of the prestigious Marcel Bezençon Awards, chosen by journalists, composers and commentators. Who is he? Harel was in his second year of his studies when he was accepted into the second season of A Star Is Born (the Israeli equivalent of American Idol) and was immediately a clear favourite for winning, receiving the highest number of votes during all stages of the show with his performances and inspiring vocal abilities. At the season finale, Harel came second, a result which sparked a heated debate in Israel. In 2006, Harel released his first self-titled album which achieved gold album status after 3 weeks and later reached platinum. The debut album, which included ten songs, yielded five chart-leading hits. Concurrently, Harel embarked on an extensive, high-profile tour, which included more than 200 shows in concert halls all over Israel. The shows were a huge success, selling out at every venue, an achievement previously reserved for veteran artists only. Harel Skaat launched his second album Figures in 2009 which achieved gold status quickly and was accompanied by a large-scale online interactive campaign. Furthermore, in the large-scale Song Of The Decade awards on Israeli TV, Harel garnered an impressive second place.
