Title Identity, spectacle and representation: Israeli entries at the Eurovision Song Contest Summary Through a sophisticated investment, both capital and symbolic, the Eurovision Song Contest generates annually a unique audiovisual spectacle, debating concepts as well as community, Europeanness or cultural identity. Following the recent researches from the Anglo-Saxon ambit, we will research different editions of the show. Seeking out the movement-image paradoxes through the dialogue between nation and song, the participation of countries in the mar-gins of Europe and his victory –the winning country has to organize the following show the next year– has decentred the host venue and the notion of Eurovision branding. We will focus on the Israeli entries (1973-2018) in order to make an issue on how in this mega-event the nation is narrated through the song. Keywords Eurovision Song Contest, Israel, nationality, host, show.
