… y a votar la canción “Push the Button” del grupo israelita Tea-Packs. La organización del festival a decidido permitir su concurso.

HELSINKI, Finland – Eurovision Song Contest organizers said yesterday they have approved this year’s Israeli entry, despite earlier statements that it had an inappropriate message and might be banned.

At a meeting in the Finnish capital, the European Broadcasting Union accepted all this year’s entries – from a record 42 countries – to be performed in Helsinki in May, but officials would not comment on individual songs.

Finnish organizer Kjell Ekholm said the Israeli song, Teapacks’ “Push the Button,” was generally appropriate but gave no details. All the entries fit the bill, he said.

Two weeks ago, Ekholm said the message of the song, which has been interpreted as a jab at Iran’s hard-line president and his country’s nuclear program, was not appropriate for the competition and might be banned. Fuente
