Israel: 45 acts left to fight for survival in HaKokhav HaBa!
Israel: 45 acts left to fight for survival in HaKokhav HaBa!

45 artists now remain in Israel’s race to find a singer. The casting stage of their national selection HaKokhav HaBa (The Next Star) is now over and we are left with the lucky artists who achieved an approval rating of 70% or greater from the jury – including former entrant Harel Skaat –  and audience.

The next stage of the contest features an X Factor-like twist – artists will be led to believe they are simply rehearsing for the next stage of the competition when in fact a jury will be watching them and deciding whether they should progress or not. Only 15 artists will survive this round.

The 45 singers, bands and artists still left in the competition are;

  1. Abraham Ratiga
  2. Adir Edri
  3. Alanya Landau
  4. Albert Gregoryan
  5. Almog Nashawi
  6. Amichai Yosef Ben Avraham
  7. Asher Amar
  8. Asif Zilberman
  9. Avia Shoshani
  10. Aviv Levy
  11. David Maman
