The final of the Israeli final was won by tonight with Hovi Star with the song Made of Stars. The candidate took it from three other competitors.

The series The Next Star for Eurovision had been since early december last year, and after almost three months finally followed the final. After a whole series of auditions and afvallingsrondes there were four candidates. Hovi Star was previously tipped as favorite, also by ex-winner Dana International.

Two versions of Made of Stars

The winner was for the full 100% elected by the voting public. One of the candidates already fell off even before they could sing her Eurovision Song. There was first a cover-round held in which only the top three got the chance to bring their song live. Hovi and Nofar sang the song both Made Of Stars, but brought the each in a completely different style of music. The man behind the song is Doron Medalie. He was responsible for the Israeli entry by 2015.

Last year delivered the show an instant hit on because Nadav Ganesan took out with its popular song Golden Boy the final in Vienna. That was already by 2010 ago.
