Mei Finegold, Israel’s ESC 2014 contestant, knows that anger can lead to empowerment. It’s a central theme of the three songs she’ll be singing this evening during Kdam 2014—the Israeli song selection show. The rock diva will perform “Same Heart”, “Nisheret iti”, and “Be Proud” and you will leave knowing she is a complete BITCH: A Beauty In Total Control of Herself!
Over the past week our readers have listened to each of the songs and voted in our Kdam 2014 poll. “Same Heart” has won in a landslide.
It’s a srong field and we know Mei has a fighting chance of making the final this year no matter what song Israel chooses. You can review the songs one more time below. Which are you cheering for?
Mei starts out by telling us that someone has filled her with poisoned love. You know this is going to be a dark one. This song is driven by anger, but it doesn’t come off as angry. Instead you’re left in awe of a woman who has taken charge and will not let anyone hold her down. This comes through in the Beyonce-esque choreography…and in the samurai warrior princess brandishing a sword. Don’t mess with Mei!
Memorable lyrics: “I’m not an animal in captivity.”
Nisheret iti / Staying with me
Mei Finegold knows how to bring the passion—and we’re not just talking about the revealing red dress and bustier she wears in this video. This number doesn’t build as nicely as “Same Heart”, but it has a great 1980s anthemic quality. The protagonist of this song seems kind of crazy, and Mei does a convincing job bringing the madness.
Memorable lyrics: “You’re staying with me, staying with me, staying with me.”
Be Proud Video
Mei has the unique ability to make rock music highly danceable. She’s a rocker chick who knows how to move, as evidenced by the finely choreographed leg crossing in this video. This song sounds the most dated of all of them, but the message is nice.
Memorable lyrics: “Be proud of who you are.”
