      Hasidic Gat Brothers Come in 2nd for Singing Contest

      They may have lost, but their TV air-time has given them new-found fame. Arie and Gil Gat stood out with their long peyos and long black coats. The two Israeli brothers sang classic American hits such as Simon and Garfunkel among other songs. The winner of "Rising Star" was the talented 20-year-old Eviatar Corcos from city of Lod who won 63-percent of the viewers votes, versus 60 percent for the Gat brothers. Both acts will likely go on to achieve greater mainstream success.
