The Wiwi Jury — our in-house team of music unprofessionals — is reviewing and rating the 37 competing songs in Eurovision 2023. Next we review Israel, who have chosen Noa Kirel with “Unicorn”.

Were we feeling phenomen-phenomen-phenomenal after listening? Read on to find out!

Noa Kirel – “Unicorn” (Israel Eurovision 2023)

Review: Noa Kirel – “Unicorn”

Lucy: When we found out Noa Kirel’s song would be called “Unicorn”, my 31-year-old brain cringed somewhat. However, whilst the lyrics live up to that expectation at times, it’s much better in terms of melody (even if, yes, it’s three songs in one). It’s massively grown on me, but Noa deserved better given her superstar status domestically. But, and this is important, that dance break moment at the end is going to be bloody INSANE, and one of my most anticipated moments of this contest.

Score: 6.5

Rick: “Unicorn” obviously includes various music styles and there’s a lot going on – especially in combination with the music video. As soon as I only concentrated on the musical aspect though, I got behind the vision of the song. Yes, it’s still “a lot” – but it feels organic and real to Noa. I can also imagine this becoming less chaotic when performed live. The unusual way of ending the song with a dance break and the pre-chorus are my favourite parts of the entry.

Score: 8

Kristín: I sincerely wish I had something uber positive to say about “Unicorn” but I’m really struggling here. I am so sorry but this, for me, is scraping the bottom of the barrel this year. I really want to love this Dua Lipa inspired number, but it just leaves me with a bad taste in my mouth. “Unicorn” should be ticking all the boxes. Girl power? Check. Strong singer? Check. Modern and catchy tune? Check. But it somehow all feels incredible forced and inauthentic. Almost fake. Sorry Israel. Its a no from me.

Score: 1.5

Ruxandra: This song gives me some sort of mixed feelings… Obviously, it’s a very brave attempt that can’t go unnoticed. There are some parts of the song that I really like (the verses, the refrain and the dance break) but I’m not a huge fan of the chorus. Israel tried a little bit of everything. All these musical transitions sound to me like it’s a medley of multiple songs, not just one coherent song. And I have to admit that I am not a fan of the “Unicorn” comparison. But having a song with lyrics about standing tall like a unicorn and also an orchestra in the background is not something you see every day.

Score: 7.5

Pablo: This song clearly has no idea what it wants to be. “Unicorn” starts with a fun pop intro and a clap-heavy hook, but then the chorus, this song’s worst enemy, comes in to undo all the stitches it sowed. The chorus brings all to a halt in a way that makes the clubby verses and bridge feel disjointed and makes the final dance break appear unnecessary and tacked on last-minute. “Unicorn” is seven songs in one and they are at war with each other. It could have been a solid hit had it made up its mind and stayed in the quirky, upbeat pop route established at the beginning.

Score: 4.5

as a Israeli,i was very happy to find out, noa kirel is going for Eurovision. but when unicorn released, oh boy my first reaction was Houston we have a problem ! I just didn’t get that , its just to much and its very israeli to go overboard, like last year entry , hosting 2019 and etc. , unicorn is not suitable for European taste . considering all the songs competing this year , and noa skills in a good day she can do top ten , but I am afraid they will do to much on the stage .… Read more »

I agree with the above. It is very inauthentic and felt that they tried hard to write with Eurovision in mind (hence the random dance break).

Having said that, it grows on you after a few listens but this is not a good song. Noa deserved better.

My current 31st place. 3 positions below “I wrote a song”. This kind of pop I never pay attention to.
The beginning of “Unicorn “ gives some hope wich dissapears right after the first verse. Third and final part of the song is horrible , pardon.
We are, afterall, to enjoy the song contest, not the bad kindergarten choir…

A bit surprised by the comments, I expected that this will be among bubble favorites. It is a typical song that the bubble overhypes each and every year, so I must say I am pleasantly surprised.

The bubble you talked about only exists outside of Wiwibloggs. In Wiwibloggs, the commenters usually hate bangers unless it’s a unique banger such as “Who the Hell Is Edgar?”.

Any positive comment towards a typical diva pop banger such as Fuego, El diablo, Mata Hari, Unicorn, etc. will get you several downvotes.

Pleasantly surprised by the rating, thought it was going to score much higher because it’s a girly empowerment bop. Personally, I find it insipid, vain and shallow, no substannce but trying to be something way too hard. It doesn’t help that it sounds like at least three songs smashed into one.

Twitter user @ redbullsvviings explained “Unicorn” with it’s meaning very well, so I’ll just copy it here: 1. Hey, you don’t like the way I’m talking – Refering to the political and military position of Israel Hey, so you stand there, keep on calling me names – Refering to Palestinian hate for Jews 2. No, I’m not your enemy so. If you’re gonna do it, don’t do it-– A portretization of Jews as peaceful people in Palestinian territories, while it’s the opposite, by controlling more territories are killing more people. And considering themselves as only rulers of the territory 3.… Read more »

I imagine this song was written with the performance in mind, so it’s a gamble judging it before we know what Israel is preparing for the stage. After all, Noa seems to be an accomplished performer and surrounded by an experienced high-budget team. For now, what we can review is the song and the track itself sounds disjointed, uneven and hollow. The chorus for example, is way less interesting than the verses and the “pheno-pheno-phemenal” (which sounds fun, even if the quality of the wordplay is questionable) and has lyrics that would fit better a Junior Eurovision entry. But the… Read more »

Well I’m kind of thinking, if she made it a point to specifically put a dance routine breakdown in the studio version then theyre planning on proper going for it for the dance break. I think the music video also indicated that it would be more in line with what Chanel did than Efendi (not to say that its copying at all but rather that it will be impressive).

This song breaks my heart a little. The first 1:20 is the best contemporary pop song of the year, in my opinion; then that song gets abandoned in favor of a fruitless search for the perfect meme. First, we get that terrible “femininal” section, then another chorus (the backing is a little fuller; I like this), then the “femininal” section comes back within 30 seconds with some new sassy Hebrew (it’s even worse, and feels like desperation setting in), then the rest of the song is dominated by that silly dance break. The good parts are unresolved and the bad… Read more »

Again this is my personal analysis. Also think about how much could actually be said about the Israeli government publicly. If the song writers were more clear with the lyrics the entry would have not been sent. The government would lose its mind and mind you that our pathetic excuse of a prime minister actively tries to get rid of KAN11 and therefore is trying to pull Israel out of Eurovision. A Unicorn is associated with the queer community and is a powerful mystical and feminine being, so imo that is why it was chosen to be the center of… Read more »

There’s a limit for how much you can separate competitive success and quality as a matter of objectivity.

Latvia VS Israel? No comparison. The israeli song is a bop, with a dance routine, it serves another purpose and audience.

The Latvian song is more artistic, complex (in a good way), well thought out, more meaningful.

They are different and it comes to personal taste if you want to judge which one will do better.

Obviously, Unicorn may end up higher in the final (should it qualify), Aida much lower because it serves a niche who like more artistic songs.

Good luck to both countries, I would love to see both of them in the final!

I’m surprised you are giving this one a 6.58/10 but the UK received almost an 8/10. Both fall under the same category in my opinion: uptempo radiofriendly danceable bop about girl empowerment sung by a good-looking girl with diva attitude. My problem with this kind of songs is that everything sounds like something heard before. I can say, though,”Unicorn” has better dynamics and keeps introducing new elements that draw you attention and, live on stage, will make the audience have their eyes on the TV screen for 3 minutes straight. And that’s what I think “Unicorn” is superior to other… Read more »

Israel: I think when we heard Israel was sending a singer who has been very successful in the Israeli charts very recently, I think its safe to say, expectations were relatively high. I’m going to talk about the positives first, Noa is a great singer and this song will be able to showcase her vocals quite a bit and her dancing which from the bit at the end of the MV looks quite promising.

  • Space Man – 2nd place
  • Zitti e buoni – The performance was amazing and unconventional and the Italian brought something beyond a normal rock song.
  • Arcade – The performance was good, the song was mediocre, so yes, occasionally a “regular” song wins, also in 2017 a “regular” song won, but it keeps changing.

“Unicorn” at least has a different message of “don’t judge someone by their appearance, their skin color and their language of speech” and it’s not another love song or a party song..
