The Israeli song exhausts and politicizes the Eurovision Festival


The idea of ​​Eurovision, as this festival living in an absurd parallel reality, screams this year before the impact that the Israeli song (and its participation itself) has had in the tragic context of the war in Gaza. This represents an unprecedented escalation of the political dimension of the competition, although its history is full of episodes of non-musical interference that have weakened its reputation as mere entertainment. There is in Eurovision records that banner, “Boicot Franco i Salazar”, which was shown spontaneously in 1964 after which the pro-Franco channel TVE thought it appropriate to apply a loop, a broadcast delay, at the time of broadcasting international events.
