This evening, the second song for Eurovision 2021 will be revealed as Israel’s HaShir Shelanu L’Eurovizion 2021 takes place. There, the three songs still in the running to be Eden Alene’s entry for the contest will be whittled down to one.
The Israeli public have been voting online since 19 January for their favourite between “Ue La La”, “La La Love” and “Set Me Free”. The final result of which they’ve chosen will be revealed tonight.
Before then, it’s time to see which of the three songs our readers would like Eden Alene to perform in Rotterdam this May. We’ve been running a series of polls, and we can now reveal the results…
“Ue La La” is your favourite of Eden Alene’s songs in HaShir Shelanu L’Eurovizion 2021
Following the final audio releases of the three songs, we asked you to name your favourite. After casting a total of 2,435 votes, you voted “Ue La La” as your number one. The song picked up 45.01% of the votes, which is 1,096 specifically.
“Ue La La” went through a significant revamp after the initial round of the selection. It ended up in an entirely different key, became a full minute longer, and featured a very different set of instruments. The lyrics of the track were also largely altered. However, the changes seem to have paid off, with plenty of y’all naming it as your pick for Eden Alene.
Second place in the poll went to “La La Love”, which secured 786 votes (32.28% of the total). The “La La Love” revamp was the most subtle of the three, focusing mostly on small instrumental improvements.
That means picking up the rear is “Set Me Free”. The song earned 553 votes (22.71%). “Set Me Free” was given a Mizrahi pop twist and additional string instruments. Its bridge, which previously had unfulfilled potential, was revamped entirely, and new lyrics were added. The song also now includes a sharp key change.
