Eurovision 2022 second rehearsals take a break at noon. But before that, we got Israel’s Michael Ben David with “I.M”. What was the X Factor champ like on the Turin stage? Let’s find out…
Israel’s Michael Ben David “I.M” — Eurovision 2022 second rehearsal
Padraig: Israel’s 2022 entry owes much to RuPaul and her expansive back catalogue. And after today’s rehearsal, there’s a strong chance Michael Ben David will be hearing “shantay, you stay” rather than “sashay away”. He delivered a slick performance with tight choreography and on-point vocals. Michael starts off surrounded by mirrors, which fall away to reveal some highly effective LED. The delegation has opted to prioritise the on floor LEDs, which was a stroke of luck given the current staging circumstances. There are lots of angles from up above, making for some captivating aerial shots. He’s dressed all in white, similar to on the X Factor. His four dancers are in white too, donning mesh tops.
