Tel Aviv 2019

Israeli media names Lior Suchard as third Eurovision 2019 host

The Eurovision Song Contest 2019 is set to take place in Tel Aviv, Israel. Israeli media seems rather certain that Erez Tal and Bar Refaeli are hosting the contest, and now they are reporting that there is a third host: Lior Suchard!

A “supernatural entertainer”

Lior Suchard is a mentalist and self-described “mystifier”. He was born in one of the cities that gave a hosting bid, Haifa. After completing three years in the Israeli Air Force, Lior began appearing on morning TV shows and eventually won a televised competition which searched for the next Uri Geller. Since then, his career has kicked off and he has appeared on international TV, including in Australia, India, Russia and the United States.

See him blow the minds of James Corden, America Ferrara and Jeremy Pixen below!

Erez Tal and Bar Refaeli

Ynet, an Israeli news website, previously reported that the other two hosts of the contest are Erez Tal and Bar Refaeli. Erez Tal is an actor and television host, and commentated at this year Eurovision Song Contest in Lisbon. Bar Refaeli is a supermodel, television host, actress and business woman. With her success in several different areas, she has a net worth of around US $20 million!

What happens next?

If these are the three hosts of next year’s Eurovision Song Contest, KAN and the Israeli production team will send their proposal to the EBU, who will review the hosts. If they are approved as the hosts, this will likely be revealed in early 2019.

What do you think of this news? Would you be happy with this hosting trio? Are there any other Israeli stars you were hoping to see host the contest?

I've watched Eurovision for as long as I can remember, but my interest really built in 2008, after I decided to watch the semifinals online, out of boredom, before the final...I was blown away by the quality of the show and have been hooked ever since! I'm a competitive trampolinist and I love baking. I've also just completed a master's degree in Research Methods in Psychology at University College London.
