As we have already informed you, 35 artists passed the scope of the auditions, with 14 of them going to the second phase – the battles phase, and they will claim the representation of the country in Eurovision 2024!

It is worth noting that in tonight’s episode of HaKokhav Haba there was a live audience for the first time for this year, people whose homes were evacuated in both the north and the south of the country, after the terrorist attacks by Hamas on the territory of Israel.

Seven contestants then appeared in front of an audience and jury, with the one with the lowest score leaving HaKokhav Haba.

Mika Moshe

Mika impressed the judges vocally as well as kinetically and received rave reviews from Shiri Maimon, the country’s representative at Eurovision 2005. Although she received the highest percentage of the night, 96%, many of the judges are unsure whether she ready for Eurovision.


Or Cohen

A good performance for Or Cohen, who impressed with her voice. He collected 94% and passed to the next phase.


Yonatan Biton

Yonatan divided the jury. However, he was good vocally and the direction elevated his performance. He scored 65% and finally qualified for the next phase.


Moriah Angel

Moriah may be one of the favorite nominated artists of the jury, today she did not impress them. Although it was vocally correct, it wasn’t a good look. However, with 50% she managed to pass to the next phase at the very fifth.

Dor Shimon

Dor’s appearance was perfect. However, the committee is not sure if he is ready for Eurovision. Despite mixed reviews, Dor with a 60%, advances to the next phase.


Eden Golan

Eden is the favorite of HaKokhav Haba, since with absolute 100% she passed to the second phase of the battles.

This time she showed that apart from singing amazingly, can also dance. The judges expressed, among other things, their joy that there is such a person in Israel. However, the song choice was divisive and only got 85% of the total score, but advances to the next stage.
