Israel: Candidate songs presentation tomorrow!

A few months ago, Israel started the search of their Eurovision entrant through the reality singing show HaKokhav HaBa L’Eirovizion (“The Next Star for Eurovision”). The competition will come to an end on Thursday with the full Israeli act, artist and song, being selected among 4 finalists:

  • Hovi Star – Made of stars (Doron Medalie)
  • Nofar Salman – Made of stars (Doron Medalie)
  • Ella Daniel – Somebody out there (David Maman, Phillip Hayun)
  • Gil Hadash – Follow the sun (Stav Beger, Tom Gefen)

This year, the format is a bit different from the one used in 2015, where the winner was firstly chosen and then given a song. This time, all finalists will compete at the national final with the songs they would perform at Eurovision in case of a victory. The songs were chosen by an expert committee from more than 100 entries submitted and they will be presented tomorrow  at IBA’s radio program Reshet Gimel, to be broadcasted at 11.05 CET.

Two of the finalists will perform the same song, Made of Stars, with different arrangements. This song is composed by Doron Medalie (co-writer of the Israeli 2015 entry, Golden boy).

The grand final of HaKokhav HaBa L’Eirovizion (“The Next Star for Eurovision”) will take place on March 3 live from Jerusalem.
