HaKokhav HaBa L’Eurovizion to select the Israeli 2019 entry

The show “HaKokhav HaBa L’Eurovizion” has been confirmed to be used again to select the Israeli representative for the Eurovision Song Contest! New this year: The show will also select the song and not just the artist for the upcoming host country.

Will the success continue?

Since using “HaKokhav HaBa L’Eurovizion” as the national selection show in 2015, Israel always qualified for the final of the Eurovision Song Contest. Of course, they wanna keep it this way. The council of KAN (broadcaster) now approved to use the show again in 2019. 

Some changes will happen in 2019 as not only the artist will be selected via “HaKokhav HaBa L’Eurovizion“, but also the song will be chosen in three shows on KAN. In the past years, the song was always selected internally. Moreover, there will also be a Spin-Off. Another competition will be held with the winner qualifying for the final of “HaKokhav HaBa L’Eurovizion“! More details will be announced later. 

Netta got Israel their fourth victory in the Eurovision Song Contest back in May. It is still open, where the contest will take place next year. Stay tuned to find out all the news for the upcoming Eurovision Song Contest!

Hey, I'm Dominik from Germany. Watched my first Eurovision in 2003 and I was in love right away! Attended my first contest in 2011 and every contest since 2013. The same happened with Melodifestivalen. Started watching in 2006 and been to every final since 2017 and try to make it to at least one heat each year, too. After all, Melodifestivalen is the real deal ♥
