The four song titles and songwriting teams were announced on 27 February 2020.. The European Broadcasting Union (EBU) split up the competing countries into six different pots based on voting patterns from previous contests, with countries with favourable voting histories put into the same pot. While initial marks were promising for Israel and less so for Spain (three of the first six juries gave Israel twelve points, and four failed to award Spain any points), it wouldn't be long before the two would power past stiff competition from France and Germany to be very close contenders. Levi was not present during the performance, therefore Static & Tavori voted separately. According to Eurovision rules, all nations with the exceptions of the host country and the "Big 5" (France, Germany, Italy, Spain and the United Kingdom) are required to qualify from one of two semi-finals in order to compete for the final; the top ten countries from each semi-final progress to the final. All songs were performed by Eden Alene and the winning song was chosen by a combination of the votes from two in-studio jury groups (10%), a professional jury (50%) and televoting (40%).  It was originally intended to be performed by Hakol Over Habibi, but lead singer Shlomit Aharon disliked the song and threatened to quit the group if they agreed to perform it. Before the final jury voted, Spain were one ahead point of Israel, leading by 116 to 115. While the contest's musical director was Izhak Graziani, conductor of the IBA Radio and Television Orchestra, Oshrat himself sought the opportunity to lead the orchestra for his composition. The shows were hosted by Assi Azar and Rotem Sela and featured a judging panel composed of Asaf Amdursky, Keren Peles, Shiri Maimon (2005 Israeli Eurovision entrant), Static & Ben-El Tavori and Itay Levi.  Oshrat and manager Shlomo Zach decided to organize a new group mimicking Hakol Over Habibi's "three men and a woman" lineup to perform the song after it was approved to compete in the 1979 Song Festival, and thus, Milk and Honey was born. Among the contestants were Ohad Shragai, A finalist of Kokhav Nolad season 8 and one of the composers behind "Home", the Israeli entry in 2019, Eden Alene, the winner of the X Factor Israel season 3, Moran Aharoni, a competitor of Kokhav Nolad season 4, Nicki Goldstein, a comedian who participated in the 2011 and 2013 Israeli national finals, Lihi Toledano, the daughter of the 1982 Israeli representative Avi Toledano, Daniel Ben-Haim, a competitor of Kokhav Nolad season 5, Or Eddie, a competitor of The Voice Israel season 1, Judah Gavra who participated in the 2013 Israeli and 2018 Sammarinese national finals and Liora Itzhak, an Indian origin singer. Having failed to qualify for the final for four consecutive years (2011–14), Israel reached the final for the first time in five years, with Nadav Guedj finishing ninth in 2015, and the country has participated in the final every year since. It was a major undertaking for the network, especially considering they had only just started occasional color broadcasts, but the opportunity would not be wasted. Note: Entries scored out are when Israel did not compete, Congratulations: 50 Years of the Eurovision Song Contest, "40th Anniversary of 'Hallelujah': The Song Which Almost Bankrupted Israel", https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Israel_in_the_Eurovision_Song_Contest_1979&oldid=990831108, Countries in the Eurovision Song Contest 1979, Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike License, This page was last edited on 26 November 2020, at 19:12. The EBU allowed Israel to participate since the country's broadcaster was already one of its members. The song initially ran over the three-minute time limit, putting Israel in danger of having their own host entry disqualified, but the omission of a repeated refrain brought it within EBU requirements. "Hallelujah" was succeeded as winner by Ireland's Johnny Logan with "What's Another Year" and as the Israeli entry by Hakol Over Habibi with "Halayla" in 1981. Therefore, Peles voted alongside Static and Tavori voted on his own. In the first round the four finalists were paired in two duels. Israel participated in, hosted, and won the 1979 Eurovision Song Contest, which was held on 31 March 1979 at the International Convention Center's Ussishkin Auditorium in Jerusalem. This will be the fifth time that the Israeli entry was selected through a collaboration with Keshet and Tedy Productions. The Israeli Broadcasting Authority (IBA) had the honor of organizing the 1979 contest following Izhar Cohen and the Alphabeta's victory in Paris with "A-Ba-Ni-Bi" the year prior. The final took place on 4 February 2020 and consisted of two rounds. The 1979 contest was hosted by Daniel Pe'er and Yardena Arazi, formerly of 1976 representatives Chocolate, Menta, Mastik and a future entrant in her own right (as well as, allegedly, one of the acts who rejected the opportunity to perform "Hallelujah").  Israel has won the contest on four occasions: in 1978 with the song "A-Ba-Ni-Bi" performed by Izhar Cohen and the Alphabeta, in 1979 with the song "Hallelujah" performed by Milk and Honey, in 1998 with the song "Diva" performed by Dana International and in 2018 with the song "Toy" performed by Netta Barzilai. Shefita who placed third in the 2019 Israeli national final performed as two different characters during the auditions and the shortlisting rounds and withdrew from the competition after her performances. Milk and Honey themselves, or at least the lineup that performed the song at Eurovision, were not to last: Gali Atari wished to pursue a solo career, and after scoring another international hit with "Goodbye New York," she left the group acrimoniously. In addition to the votes of the judges, 300 points in proportion to the votes of the audience were also allocated to the three contestants. Additionally, the song was performed at the end of the 1999 Eurovision Song Contest in Jerusalem by all that year's contestants, in tribute to the victims of the Balkan War, and by fellow 1979 contestant Anne-Marie David in Eurovision's Greatest Hits (2015). Both Hakol Over Habibi and Pick would get their moments at Eurovision eventually: the former would represent Israel on their return to the contest in 1981, and the latter, after competing in many Israeli selection shows, would go on to write the Dana International song "Diva" with Yoav Ginai, which won the 1998 contest. The final was held on 3 March 2020. Israel participated in, hosted, and won the 1979 Eurovision Song Contest, which was held on 31 March 1979 at the International Convention Center's Ussishkin Auditorium in Jerusalem. Dutch broadcaster NOS stepped in to host the following year's contest in The Hague, but due to the eventual decided date coinciding with Yom HaZikaron (the Israeli Day of Remembrance), the reigning champions became the first and only to not return to defend their title the following year. We, the undersigned artists from Europe and beyond, support the heartfelt appeal from Palestinian artists to boycott the Eurovision Song Contest 2019 hosted by Israel… As it happened, Spain were also the last to vote, and if they awarded Israel any points at all, they would win (even if they only awarded Israel one point, the count-back rules at the time in the event of a tie stated that the song with the most top scores would win; Israel ended the night with six to Spain's four). In the end, Spain proved fair players: their jury awarded Israel ten points, sealing Israel's second consecutive victory. Tamir and Gavritz would accompany 1979 co-host Yardena Arazi on her Eurovision comeback in 1988, with the song "Ben Adam." The Israeli broadcaster Israeli Public Broadcasting Corporation (IPBC) collaborated with the commercial broadcaster Keshet and Tedy Productions, which organisied the reality singing competition HaKokhav HaBa L'Eurovizion ("The Next Star for Eurovision"). The remaining three contestants were paired in a third duel in the second round.  However, due to 2019-20 pandemic of Coronavirus, the contest was cancelled. It took place in Tel Aviv, Israel, following Netta's win at the 2018 contest in Lisbon, Portugal, with the song "Toy". Israel performed tenth on the night of the contest, following Germany and preceding France. Their entry, "Hallelujah," was composed by Kobi Oshrat (who also conducted the orchestra), written by Shimrit Orr [he], and performed by Milk and Honey (made up of Gali Atari, Shmulik Bilu, Reuven Gavritz, and Yehuda Tamir). Eurovision Song Contest 1979: Jerusalem: International Convention Center: Yardena Arazi, Daniel Pe'er: Eurovision Song Contest 1999: Jerusalem: International Convention Center: Dafna Dekel, Sigal Shachamon, Yigal Ravid: Eurovision Song Contest 2019: Tel Aviv: Expo Tel Aviv: Erez Tal, Bar Refaeli, Assi Azar, Lucy Ayoub The official logo was revealed on 8 January 2019 under the slogan "Dare To Dream". In total, 59 contestants qualified for the next phase of the competition following the withdrawal of Itzik Shamli, one of the previously qualified contestants. Gil Shapira joined her only from the shortlisting round. In this audition Peles and Tavori switched places. This feat would not be repeated again until Ireland's hat-trick of victories in the 1990s. Israel har deltaget i Eurovision Song Contest siden deres debut i 1973.Selvom de geografisk ikke er en del af Europa, kan de deltage i konkurrencen på grund af deres medlemskab i EBU.. Til dato har der været fire israelske sejre i ESC. Their entry, "Hallelujah," was composed by Kobi Oshrat, written by Shimrit Orr, and performed by Milk and Honey. Continuing "Hallelujah"'s long history of narrow victories, Israel were neck-in-neck with Spain's Betty Missiego and "Su canción" for most of the voting. In the audition, Linoy Akala participated alone. Israel originally planned to participate in the Eurovision Song Contest 2020. In the end, the contestant with the highest number of points won the competition. However, due to 2019-20 pandemic of Coronavirus, the contest was cancelled. Izhar Cohen og Alphabeta vandt i Paris i 1978 med sangen "A-Ba-Ni-Bi". The group recorded versions in English, German, French, and Dutch, and there have also been recordings in Afrikaans and Czech by other artists. At the end of the first round, one of the remaining two contestants was saved by the viewers and the other contestant was eliminated. "Hallelujah" has lived on as a Eurovision standard in the years following its win. With the exception of Songs of Europe, the majority of live performances (particularly those in connection to Eurovision) have been by Atari, who has performed the song at Congratulations: 50 Years of the Eurovision Song Contest (2005), the 2019 Eurovision Song Contest (as part of the "Switch Song" medley, alongside Conchita Wurst, Måns Zelmerlöw, Eleni Foureira, and Verka Serduchka), Het Grote Songfestivalfeest (2019, alongside hosts Tim Douwsma and Buddy Vedder), and Eurovision: Europe Shine a Light (2020, alongside veterans of the Junior Songfestival, the Dutch Junior Eurovision selection show). An additional show also enabled the public to select the song that the Israeli representative will sing, which had previously been selected internally. The national final was held on 27 January 1979 in the International Convention Center, which would also serve as the venue for the international final two months later. Israel originally planned to participate in the Eurovision Song Contest 2020. HaKokhav HaBa has been used since 2015 to select the Israeli artist for Eurovision. Since the introduction of the semi-finals in 2004, Israel has failed to reach the final six times. In 2005, Shiri Maimon gave the country its tenth top five result, finishing fourth. The song narrowly defeated Svika Pick's "Ein li ish milvadi" by two points from the regional juries to seal its ticket to the international final. "Hallelujah" proved to be a major international success, reaching the top ten of nine international charts and peaking at #1 in five (Finland, Ireland, Israel, Norway, and Sweden). Israel's fourth victory came when Netta won the 2018 contest in Lisbon, with the song "Toy". Sextiosex låtar har vunnit Eurovision Song Contest, en årlig tävling organiserad av medlemsländerna i den Europeiska radio- och TV-unionen.Tävlingen, som sänds varje år sedan dess debut 1956, är en av de längst pågående tv-programmen i världen. Israel was placed into the first semi-final, to be held on 12 May 2020, and was scheduled to perform in the second half of the show. The Eurovision Song Contest 2019 was the 64th edition of the annual Eurovision Song Contest. Therefore, Tavori voted on his own and Peles voted alongside Static.  Milk and Honey, with Leah Lupatin filling in for Atari, would compete together again at the 1981 and 1989 national selections, while Yehuda Tamir would attempt a solo return in 1986. The members of the four jury groups were: The song that Alene performed at Eurovision was decided by a national final, HaShir HaBa L'Eurovizion, featuring a total of four songs. The eventual winner, "Hallelujah," had taken a long road in getting to the Festival: composer Kobi Oshrat had submitted it to the 1978 national final committee, but it was rejected, and was similarly rejected by international festivals in Chile and Japan. It was hosted by Rivka Michaeli.. The logo is made of three triangles, creating a golden star. Considering the unexpected but resounding success the IBA found in reformatting the annual Israel Song Festival as a Eurovision national final the year before, it was only logical that they use it again to select their 1979 entry, which would additionally have the honor of being Israel's host entry in Jerusalem. The reality singing competition HaKokhav HaBa, which was organised by Keshet, was used to select the artist that would represent Israel. All but two countries voted for "Hallelujah" (Germany and Italy), and six (Finland, Ireland, Norway, Portugal, Sweden, and the United Kingdom) awarded Israel twelve points. It marked the third occasion a country won two years in a row, following Spain themselves (in 1968 and 1969) and Luxembourg (in 1972 and 1973; coincidentally, Anne-Marie David, who had scored the second of Luxembourg's back-to-back wins, represented France that year and finished third behind Spain and Israel). Israel made its debut in the Eurovision Song Contest in 1973 as the first non-European country granted permission to participate in the event. In this round every contestant performed together with Idan Raichel who performed as an interval act during the Grand Final of the Eurovision Song Contest 2019. Israel was drawn to compete in the second semi-final of the Eurovision Song Contest which took place on 11 May 2017. Note: Entries scored out are when Israel did not compete. The Israeli broadcaster Israeli Public Broadcasting Corporation (IPBC) collaborated with the commercial broadcaster Keshet and Tedy Productions, which organisied the reality singing competition HaKokhav HaBa L'Eurovizion ("The Next Star for Eurovision"). The singer who will perform the Israeli entry for the Eurovision Song Contest 2020 was selected through the reality singing competition HaKokhav HaBa L'Eurovizion ("The Next Star for Eurovision"), the original version of the international format Rising Star produced by Tedy Productions and Keshet Media Group. Given his limited experience as a conductor, he did little more than count the beat alongside the metronome, but with more experience he would go on to conduct the Israeli entry in four more international finals (1985, 1987, 1991, and 1992; he also composed the 1985 and 1992 entries). It was the third time Israel had hosted the contest, having previously done so in 1979 and 1999. Nadav Guedj emerged as the winner o The song was performed by Nadav Guedj. On 28 January 2020, a special allocation draw was held which placed each country into one of the two semi-finals, as well as which half of the show they would perform in. All shows in the competition were broadcast on Keshet 12 as well as online via mako.co.il. The Israeli entry for the 2020 Contest was selected through the reality singing competition HaKokhav HaBa L'Eurovizion ("The Next Star for Eurovision"), which was organised by Keshet and Tedy Productions. The auditions were broadcast between 20 November and 18 December 2019. The Israel Song Festival was held as usual, leading many to suspect that the winning song, "Pizmon Hozer" by The Brothers & the Sisters, was going to represent Israel prior to their withdrawal; however, given that the Festival was organized and held after Israel had already announced their plans to withdraw, this would seem unlikely. In this audition Peles and Tavori switched places. Performing as the closing entry during the show in position 18, "I Feel Alive" was announced among the top 10 entries of the second semi-final and therefore qualified to compete in the final on 13 May. Prior to the 2020 Contest, Israel had participated in the Eurovision Song Contest forty-two times since its first entry in 1973. The IBA were unable to host the contest two years in a row, as they had already spent a considerable amount of money on the 1979 contest and feared they would go bankrupt if they tried to host again. Israel themselves awarded twelve points to Denmark's Tommy Seebach with "Disco Tango.". The slogan for Eurovision 2019 is Dare to Dream, and the total budget for the contest is estimated to €28.5 million.. ), "Israel: Next Star for Eurovision 2020 kicks off with Orr Amrami-Brockman and Ella-Lee Lahav slaying scoreboard", איציק שמלי מסיים את דרכו ב"הכוכב הבא לאירוויזיון", "Israel: Eden Arlene unveils her potential Eurovision entries", https://www.kan.org.il/Item/?itemId=66904, "Which country performs in which Eurovision 2020 Semi-Final", https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Israel_in_the_Eurovision_Song_Contest_2020&oldid=964603462, Countries in the Eurovision Song Contest 2020, Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike License, Gal Jo Cohen, Eyal Yishay, Zlil Kalifi, Eran Kashi, This page was last edited on 26 June 2020, at 13:31.

ISRAEL Israel: Major changes in selection of Eden’s Eurovision 2021 song Instead of 16 songs, Israelis will only have 10 songs to vote among in the country’s search for Eden Alene’s contribution to Eurovision Song Contest 2021 From each duel the contestant with the higher score advanced to the second round. Israeli broadcaster Israel Broadcasting Authority collaborated with the commercial broadcaster Keshet in order to select the Israeli entry for the 2015 contest in Vienna, Austria. Levi did not vote due to his personal connection with the competitor. The competition commenced on 20 November 2019. Maimon did not vote due to her personal connection with one of the members of the band. At the end of the duel, each judge allocated twelve points to their favourite, ten points to their runner-up and eight points to their least favourite. The next year where the contest was held in Israel, Kobi Marimi represented the country on home soil with the song "Home", finishing twenty-third with 35 points in the final.
