As previously reported, three songs will be performed by Eden Alene at the Israeli national final, due to take place on January 25th. Having recently been recording the tracks last month, Israeli sites had leaked the top 3. KAN have now confirmed that these leaks were indeed correct.
Having whittled down over 200 submissions to just nine, the public were able to hear nine demos. After 11 days of public voting, the top two with the most votes were automatically qualified. The third song was selected by an expert jury assembled by KAN.
As previously revealed, “La La Love”, “Ue La La” and “Set Me Free” are the three songs that will be competing in the final of Our Song For Eurovision next month (January 25). Two of these were voted by the public, with the third being selected by a jury. The national final versions, recorded by Eden last month, are due to be released on the 19th of January, when the final round of public voting will open. The selection will be 100% televote.
You can hear short teasers of Eden singing the three tracks in a clip with host Lucy Ayoub below:
