Israeli mentalist Lior Suchard is to make an appearance at the grand final of this yearʼs Eurovision Song Contest after being rumoured as one of the show presenters in Tel Aviv.
Lior Suchard first rose to fame domestically after appearing onnumerous morning television shows, before being invited to compete on ‘The Successorʼ, a televised contest for illusionists, mentalists and escapists, which Suchard later won.
His work as a ‘supernatural entertainerʼ has seen him perform on The Late Late Show with James Corden, Good Morning Britain and The Tonight Show. Today, he greets passengers on El Al flights as the on screen actor presenting safety videos.
Earlier this week, Suchard stunned Eurovision Song Contest executive producer, Jon Ola Sand, in a stunt with Israeli broadcaster KAN.
