Through their selection process, ‘Rising Star’, Israel has decided that ‘Golden Boy’ will be Nadav Guedj’s song for Vienna in May. He is one of the youngest to be selected so far and his song is about how everyone can find their own identity. It is described as a Middle-Eastern pop anthem, according to Doron Medalie, the song’s writer.
I think it has an air of ‘Cheesecake’ about it, but I quite like it overall! It is a good fusion between typical Middle Eastern Music we’ve come to expect from countries like Azerbaijan and upbeat Mediterranean songs like those of Greece. What do you think, will it qualify, and how high up the leaderboard could it climb?
