With Netta's victory at the ESC in Lisbon it began the possibility that anyone could dream of winning both in the competition and in life, regardless of their physical and mental characteristics.
The slogan is Dare to dream and we all have the chance to Dare to Dream. Eurovision is a song contest that promotes inclusion. This year's dream involves the inclusion of people with reduced physical and psychological abilities. Tel Aviv 2019 promotes inclusion both inside and outside the arena and to the world.
There is a large reserved area for viewers in wheelchairs during the shows and special seats for people with disabilities. In a small arena, with about a third of the capacity of the Lisbon arena, this is certainly an image of inclusion.
But the real mark is the performance of a band of 8 elements with physical disabilities, SHALVA BAND, whose two blind interpreters had a performance that contagious the whole arena during the rehearsals. Shalva Band will play in the interval act of the second semifinal today. Dare to dream everyday.

After big surprises in the first semifinal, much more are waited for the second! Are you ready to feel your heartbeat?
The countries competing in the second Semi-Final are:
EBU stated "How do juries decide? The juries decide their points based on 4 key elements: Vocal capacity of the singer; Performance on stage; Composition and originality of the song;Overall impression of the act." So it will be very interesting to know how the juries had read these instructions next saturday, after the final.
Who will reach the final? Dare to Dream!

Tel Aviv breathes in these days the Eurovision spirit . Being a coast town facing the sea it features an extensive boardwalk with many beaches. It is walking all these footwear that we can see the amount of beach supports with flags of the various countries and with full of Eurovision symbols. At the end of this boardwalk is where you will find the EuroVillage, itself inserted on the beach.
I can therefore conclude that here in Televive, the Eurovision spirit is largely facing the beach. Places where you can easily find European fans and local people to provide information about the city and its country Israel.
The Eurovision spirit is felt everywhere and the excitement is felt in the air for the semifinal of this night where anything can happen.

This evening will finally be held the first semi-final of Eurovision 2019!
Yesterday we were in the jury rehearsal, in an arena mainly filled by Israelites, and the competition is more and more close. The arena is considerably smaller than in previous years but on television it will work due to the depth effect created by the stage!
It will certainly be a great show!
Countries competing tonight are:
France, Spain and Israel are also able to vote!
