Israel: Selection through ‘The Next Star’ again

After the success of last year, Israel will once again use their talent show ‘ The Next Star’ (HaKokhav HaBa) to pick their artist for the Eurovision Song Contest. The search for the successor of Nadav Guedj has already begun.

The official auditions have already been held in August, but there has been a shout-out for another surprise audition. The third season of HaKokhav HaBa will be broadcast on the Israeli Channel 2.

Last year Israel made it to the final of Eurovision for the first time since 2010 and it even got a top-10 finish in the grand final with the song ‘ Golden Boy’ , which was written for The Next Star Nadav.
