The Grand Final of the Israeli national selection show HaKokhav HaBa L’Eurovizion (The Next Star For Eurovision) will take place today revealing us who will wave the country’s flag in Lisbon. After months of shows, only four soloists out of the one hundred and twenty initial candidates are still in the race to represent Israel.
These are the hopefuls that will try to get the ticket to the Eurovision Song Contest 2018:
- Chen Aharoni
- Netta Barzilai
- Riki Ben Ari
- Jonathan Mergui
The winner of HaKokhav HaBa L’Eurovizion 2018 will be determined by the audience and the voting of a professional jury panel made up of Asaf Amdursky, Keren Peles, Harel Skaat (Eurovision 2010) and Static & Ben-El Tavori. As in previous editions, this show will only select the Israeli representative, while the song will be revealed at a later date.
You can watch the Israeli final at 20.00 CET, hosted by Assi Azar and Rotem Sela, on our Multi-Window Live Feed.
