The Israeli newspaper Israel Hayom reports that Meital de Razon is expected to participate in the upcoming season of Rising Star, the Israeli national selection for the Eurovision Song Contest 2017.
Meital de Razon broke through the Eurovision world when she participated in Kdam Eurovision 2013. Both local and international fans expected Meital, along with Asi Tal, to make Europe dance with their entry Toda la noche. They managed to finish in the third place and didn’t make it to the actual contest.
