On this new series of weekly posts, we remind you the best entries that unfortunately finish last. Sometimes, even good songs don’t manage to succeed and we are here to freshen up your memory!
We continue our new series of weekly posts with something from the recent past. The year was 2014 when Israel was represented by Mei Finegold with the song “Same Heart”. Sadly, her song finished 14th out of 15 competing entries in her semi with 19 points.
Mei Finegold was born in 16th of December 1982, as Meital Slominsky. He gained fame through her participation in the Israeli version of Idol, in 2009, where she finished third. She grew up in Rishon LeZion, where she is still living. From a young age, she took singing classes. Her main genres of singing are soft and alternative rock and pop.
In January 2014, was announced that Mei was initially selected. On a later date, the public broadcaster organised a special show, where three songs where presented. Then the public chose the song. “Same Heart” is composed by Rami Talmid.
The song had a very catchy beat, but that didn’t bring the points Israel needed for qualification. Personally, I love this song and I’m still listening to it!
What do you think about the song? Was last its deserved place? Let us know in the comment box below!
