Israel: Six More Acts Through

IsraelIsrael – The quest to find next year’s Israeli entry has been continuing as The Next Star for Eurovision put through another 6 acts this weekend. You can now see their performances online… 

Israel The Next Star

The following qualified with over 70% scores:

Roni Silver 94% singing ‘Caruso
Mor Terry 85%
Mika Tzur 81%
Almog Hillel 79%
Ofir Haim 79%
Matan Elkayam 72%

4 other acts were eliminated. Israel is rivalling Lithuania for its complex process this year. It is expected that there are about 15 shows. These first 6 or so to date has seen acts having to get 70% of the vote..but the jury can give a 10% sympathy vote, we think. The next phase will see 15 acts per show performing for the jury and they have to get at least 3 out of four jury votes to go through. If more than 5 per show get 3 or 4 out of 4 votes, the jury must decide who does not go through. Then there appears to be duels and limitations to eventually get 5-10 acts in the grand final!

Israel will perform in the 2nd semi-final on May 12th to avoid a clash with Israel’s Memorial Day for Fallen Soldiers of Israel and Victims of terrorism on 10th May.
