The Israeli broadcaster, KAN, has confirmed the country’s participation in Eurovision 2020, making Israel the 25th country that announces its participation.
Together with confirmation of participation, KAN also announced how it will choose its representative but also the song.
Initially, the selection of the artist will be made another year through the talent show « HaKokhan HaBa L’Eurovizion », which makes sense since,using this option after 2015, the country has not lost the qualification to the final – including of course Netta ´ s victory in 2018.
But the selection of the song is the detail that will be changed. Until this year, the song was chosen by a team of experts. However, for 2020, KAN will organize an additional show for the selection of the song which will be determined this time by the television audience.
KAN is expected to invite artists to participate in HaKokhan HaBa next week, but the dates of the talent show have not yet been announced.
After Netta’s victory, Israel’s next representative was Kobi Marimi with the song « Home ». Kobi won 23rd place.
