Teapacks, Israel's entrant to the 2007 Eurovision Song Contest, gave their last video interview on IBA's official Eurovision website Eurovil . They revealed a bit of their stage act and invited all the fans to their live gig in Helsinki, on May 8th.

Teapacks, Israel's entrants to the 2007 Eurovision Song Contest, left early this morning on their way to Helsinki. In their last video interview (in English), the leader Kobi Oz reveals a bit of what we can expect from their stage act. "We really like working with handycams. If the show's director is open minded, you can expect an extensive useof it", says Oz and demonstrates a bouncy and quirky performance and promises their stage act to be like that because "when Teapacks are are on stage, its a festival of its own", as he puts it. Nevertheless, Oz implies there are no special gimmicks planned, except for aunique clothes design.

Kobi Oz told he was selected to watch the videos of the rest of the songs in this year's contest, because he was the shortest among the band… According to Oz, the songs the band liked the most were from Belgium, Bulgaria, Andorra and even Ukraine. In a final note, the band called the Eurovision fans to raise their voice in favour of returning the live music to the song contest and allowing musicians to play their instruments on stage.

Teapacks used this last internet interview to extend an open invitation to all the fans arriving in Helsinki to attend a gig the band will be throwing. Teapacks will perform at the Virgin Oil club in Helsinki on May 8th, and accroding to Kobi Oz, "it will be a mediterranean headbangers ball!". You are all welcomed.

Eurovil also reports that IBA will broadcast YLE's documentary film "Finland: Zero points" on Wednesday, May 9th, at 21:40. Teapacks will perform for Israel with 'Push the button', as song number 2 at the semifinal on May 10th.
