Hovi Star is slaying, y’all! Israel’s Eurovision 2016 singer has consistently nailed his performances here in Stockholm, securing a spot in the final and courting international press. He’s got a beautiful voice and a filthy mouth — and we just love it!
William and Deban got up close and personal with Hovi after his first rehearsal last week. Hovi brought his A-game as per usual, talking about perfectionism and dropping the word “bitches” at every turn.
“I always say that I will never be 100% satisfied with my stage performance, my vocals, my everything, because I’m too much of a perfectionist, but I think that when Eurovision comes and we do the rehearsals I will be 99.5% happy with everything, but right now I’m at 85%, cause I still need to yell at some people for things to happen, so I’ll do that and then I’ll be happy!”
But Hovi also expresses his love and admiration for other contestants, especially Poland’s Michal Szpak. It seems like the boys have built up a deep friendship during their Eurovision journey.
“He is so cute! Oh my God! When we were at the press conference in Israel, he gave me this coin from Poland, and today when I saw him, I saw that he was wearing the necklace I gave him in Israel!”
Hovi had plenty to say about his staging, which includes two acrobats wearing skintight body suits while locked in illuminated hula hoops.
“What do you mean, what is that about? Its about Eurovision! I bring it, I serve it, I give it!”
