Tonight saw the final of the Israeli singing competition HaKokhav HaBa (The Next Star) L’Eurovizion, in which four artists who had battled through the various eliminations of the competition performed one last time, with a spot at Eurovision 2020 in Rotterdam at stake.
The four acts who took part in the competition were;
- Eden Alene
- Orr Amrami-Brockman
- Ella-Lee Lahav
- Gaya Shaki
In the first round, Gaya Shaki was eliminated following her performance of “My Immortal”, with the final three performing once more in the final round and with the two juries (HaKokhav HaBa jury and a separate professional jury) voting on the winner.
Orr Amrami-Brockman performed “Haim lhiot bah mehhoav”, finishing in third, Ella-Lee Lahav finished in second after performing “Roar” which left Eden Alene as this year’s HaKokhav HaBa winner, after her performance of “Halo”!
Eden Alene will now represent Israel in Eurovision 2020, with her song to be decide on March 3rd in another program, HaShir HaBa L’Eurovizion.
