Israel pushes button for Eurovision by: Caroline Westbrook

Teapacks

Israel's entry for this year's Eurovision Song Contest has been chosen. The tongue-in-cheek rap band Teapacks will represent the country in Helsinki with the track Push The Button.

The song, which scored a landslide victory, was chosen from four contenders, with a mix of public telephone and Internet voting as well as the votes of an internal Israeli jury.

Afterwards, the band's lead singer Kobi Oz said he was pleased with the result. "I hoped this song would be selected," he said. "It has the right vibe and it's multicultural."

Teapacks will be hoping for more success in this year's Eurovision than last year's Israeli representative, Eddie Butler, who finished second from last with his ballad Together We Are One.

As a result of his poor performance, the band will have to compete in the semi-final in Helsinki on May 10, in order to try and win a place in the final on May 12.
