  • All about Madonna’s show in Israel last night

    So after one week in Israel, it is time to leave, and she did, with a bang. For one night, Israel was the capital of pop music, with Madonna’s debut of her “MDNA” tour.
    Everyone is talking about last night’s concert in Ramat Gan Stadium near Tel Aviv. Dynamic stage, people flying in the air, gigantic video screens, different costumes and crazy rhythm were a part of a show that Israelis don’t see that often.
    Madonna began her show with “Girl Gone Wild” and moved to “Revolver” and “Gang Bang.” As the show progressed, critics argued that the 53-year-old idol was just focusing on put on her very own rendition of “Cirque du Soleil,” instead of, umm, singing. More ▸

  • ‘Somebody That I Used To Know,’ in Hebrew

    We’re all talking about Gotye’s “Somebody That I Used To Know,” and rightly so: The song is awesome. The crazy YouTube sensation has had over 175 million views and if you enter the song into a YouTube search, you’ll wind up with countless amazing covers. (“Glee” has already covered the song in a recent episode, so you know it’s a hit).
    Roi Lavi and the Good Guys have taken covering the song to a whole new level. Not only have they translated the song into Hebrew (which sounds possibly more awesome than the English version), but they’ve covered a cover — Walk Off the Earth’s version of the song, where six people play one instrument. With a new Middle Eastern vibe, the Hebrew version features an oud and even a high-pitched guy wearing a kippah.
    Check out the Roi Lavi and the Good Guys version here:
