Israeli mentalist Lior Suchard is so excited to appear at the Eurovision in Tel Aviv this year, that he brought a brand new musical act to The Late Late Show with James Corden on Monday night.
Suchard, appearing alongside the newly reunited Jonas Brothers, asked the studio audience if they had heard of the Eurovision – which will be hosted in Israel in May for the first time in 2019.
While Corden, who is British, said yes, most of the crowd didn’t seem to know anything about the contest.
“Americans don’t really know a lot about it, that’s why it is called ‘Euro’-vision,” Suchard joked, “and it is the biggest song competition in the world – 40 countries, 200 million viewers.”
The mentalist told the audience that “last year, Israel won, which means that this year, it is going to be in Israel. They asked me to do a special crazy act, which means I decided to do something crazy about music.”
Suchard continued by shocking and wowing both the audience and the Jonas Brothers – Nick, Joe and Kevin – with his patented mind-reading tricks, this time with a musical twist.
While Suchard auditioned to be one of the hosts of the upcoming Eurovision, he didn’t get the job. But the organizers still wanted him to be a part of the show, and asked him to create a special, magical, musical act for the May 18 grand finale.
