He’s got major sass and marches to the beat of his own drummer.
And on Saturday afternoon Hovi Star proved that once again during the press day ahead of the Eurovision Pre-Party Riga.
Israel’s Eurovision 2016 act — real name Hovav — talks about his R&B power ballad “Made of Stars”, shooting the music video and — much to our delight — wiwibloggs’ criticism of his original song.
Deciding to ditch the original version and go for a revamp is never an easy choice, but it’s definitely one that has paid off.
“We had to take the song to a place that is more my genre and something I feel comfortable with,” he says. “But let’s talk about wiwibloggs, because I really want to talk about wiwibloggs. When we did the revamp, you guys really pulled trough and I’m really happy for it.”
So are we!
OUR REVAMP REACTION
You may think Hovi Star is confident in everything he does, but even he gets nervous about some things.
“You have no idea how scared I was filming that video. A drone flying that close to your face is not fun but it looked amazing so I said yes.”
He’s keeping his Stockholm staging a secret for now, but Hovi teased the possibility of having drones on stage. Exciting right? And just a bit dangerous!
