Even though there are rumours the past hours regarding Michael’s withdrawal from Eurovision 2022, KAN, the Israeli Broadcasting Company, announced that Martin Dietmann will take care of the stage performance of I.M in Turin.
Martin is already well-known to the Eurovision fandom. The austrian director was the person behind Conchita Wurst’s performance back in 2014 and many more entries of the country. He was, also, the staging director of 7 countries last year, including Cyprus with the song El Diablo. It is worth mentioning, that, except Israel, it is announced that he will also stage the performance of Cyprus in 2022!
Through a post in Facebook, KAN announced the news stating the following:
”Martin Dietmann will stage the Israeli entry of Eurovision 2022!
The Israeli delegation announced today that the international art director will stage the show of Michael Ben David in Turin.
Dietmann is a successful director with extensive experience in the competition. In his big career you will find a sequence of years that he was art director or participated in various other roles or with other countries. Among others, Dietmann puts his signature on the winning performance of Conchita back in 2014.
His involvement in the entry of Israel in Eurovision 2022 is justified with his huge experience in Eurovision, which stands for itself, and the wish to reach to a professional result on stage.”
Israel will perform on the first half of the second semifinal with Michael Ben David performing the song I.M, wishing to continue the qualification streak the country has since 2015.
