A few months ago, Israel started the search for their Eurovision entrant through the talent show Rising Star. The competition will come to an end on Thursday with the Israeli national final being held. The four candidate songs have just been presented at an IBA radio program.

After many audition rounds and eliminations, the Israeli national selection is near the end. Four artistis will fight for the right to represent Israel in the upcoming Eurovision Song Contest.

The final will take place on 3rd of March 2016 at the G.G. Studios in Jerusalem. The four performers were matched with a potential Eurovision Song Contest song chosen from over 100 submissions, by a professional committee with members from IBA, Keshet and the Israeli Broadcasting Corporation.

Today the songs were presented to the public for the first time, during the Reshet Gimmel radio show Ba’avir, at IBA’ Radio and the songs are now available to listen to on their website.
