Israel to host two selection shows for Eurovision 2020

Israeli broadcaster KAN has confirmed their participation at Eurovision 2020, and furthermore the national selection format has been revealed.

Israel will hold two selection shows to determine their song and singer for Eurovision 2020. The artist will be chosen through the format HaKokhav HaBa L’Eurovizion which has been used to select the Israeli artist since 2015.

KAN has now chosen to add an additional show to help select the song that will represent the nation at Eurovision. In previous years, only the artist selection featured a televised show, and the song was chosen internally and then revealed to the public later on. This change came from criticism of the internal portion of the selection.

The dates of the selection are yet to be decided, but the artist selection often begins months in advance of Eurovision. Stay tuned for more news!
