Skaat performed four songs during the pre-Eurovision production, which lasted over two hours. He also performed the song ‘Hallelujah’, which won the 1979 Eurovision competition, with Gali Atari.
Shlomi Saranga performed ‘Socrates’, which represented Greece in 1979. Uri Gottleib and Sarale Sharon also participated in the production hosted by Ofer Shechter, and advised Skaat on how to perform abroad.
The young singer dedicated ‘Milim’ to his grandfather, Avraham Shimon, who passed away last week.
