Today the second round of the Israeli talent show HaKochav HaBa L’Eurovision has begun. All the candidates qualified from the audition stage will compete in this round which will be aired throughout this week until Thursday.
The audience won’t be able to vote in this round of shows. So, the five jurors will award their points in percentages, either 20% (YES) or 0% (NO) each. A minimum of 60% is required to have the chance to qualify.
The following candidates went through tonight’s show:
- Lior Chen (80%)
- Maya Bouskilla (100%)
- Shefita (80%)
- Tai (80%)
- Osher Biton (80%)
Tal Versano and Ariela Siman Tov failed to reach the minimum percentage, as both of them got 20%. Nadav Phillips (60%) and Ayala Eligula (80%) did so, but the jury eventually decided to eliminate them to meet the rules’ requirement of five qualified artists per show.
