The moment the Israeli representative was booed in the Eurovision 2024 final

Already in the first general rehearsal held last Wednesday the singer suffered this situation, which led to a complaint from the public broadcaster Kan, which organizes Israel’s participation in the contest.

Eden Golan, Israeli representative at Eurovision 2024, again received boos during her performance in the final. It was as a sign of the rejection of the military offensive that his country is carrying out in Gaza, with almost 35,000 Palestinian civilians dead.

Interspersed with applause from fellow citizens, the boos sounded through television broadcasts even higher than in his last appearances before the public, especially in the final section in which he sings his song in Hebrew, titled ‘Hurricane’ and in which he exalts resistance in the face of adversity.

I’m here doing what I love, I only focus on music and energy, there are many who support me and it is an honor to represent my country especially in these times. “I focus only on doing a good performance and making our voice heard,” she declared when asked about some boos that were also repeated in the second semifinal, last Thursday, and in the general rehearsal on Friday.
