HaKokhav Haba 2024

Israel: Everything that happened in the fifteenth HaKokhav Haba episode! | Ten artists are still in the race!

The fifteenth episode of HaKokhav Haba (special edition), the talent show through which Israel‘s representative for Eurovision 2024 will be selected, aired on Sunday, January 14!

Out of the 35 artists who made it beyond the audition stage, 14 advanced to the battle phase, where they will compete to represent their country in Eurovision 2024!

In episode fifteen, three auditions aired and five more artists went through to the next round. Assi Azar and Rotem Sela, who have been hosting HaKokhav Haba since 2014, are the show’s presenters. The jury is made up of Eden Hasson, Shiri Maimon, Itay Levy, Assaf Amdorsky, Ran Dankar, and Keren Pels.

Six competitors then gave performances in front of the judges and audience. Nevertheless, the jury ultimately selected one of the three performers with the lowest score to be eliminated.

Yonathan Biton Vs Dor Shimoni

Two excellent performances from both artists. The result was determined by a judge who voted against Dor Shimoni’s performance. Jonathan Biton advanced directly to the next round with a score of 92% to 80%.

Shay Tamino Vs Moria Angel

Despite the judges’ disagreement on both artists’ performances and the fact that none of them obtained a unanimous vote in favor of winning, Moria Angel emerged victorious with 82% against 66% and therefore moved on to the next round of the show.

Ido Bartel Vs Arik Sinai

After receiving 87% of the judges’ favorable votes, Arik Sinai emerged victorious . In contrast, Ido Bartel only got a 75% after failing to persuade the jury.

Ido Bartel was ultimately chosen by the judges to be eliminated from the show out of the three artists that were defeated in their dueling matches. There are currently just ten contestants left to represent Israel in Eurovision 2024.

The 10 artists still in the running to represent Israel in Eurovision 2024 are:

  1. Leanne Byrne
  2. Eden Golan
  3. Arik Sinai
  4. Shay Tamino
  5. Or Cohen
  6. Yonathan Biton
  7. Mika Moshe
  8. Dor Shimoni
  9. Moria Angel
  10. Oral Ravid

Israel qualified for the finals every year from 2015 to 2020 through HaKokhav HaBa, and Netta won the Eurovision Song Contest in 2018 with the song “Toy”.

Israel was represented last year by Noa Kirel and the song “Unicorn”, which came in third place with 362 points overall.
