About the show
The Next Star sees every week artists from all over Israel auditioning in front of the TV audience and a judging panel consisting of 4 members:
- Static & Ben-El Tavori: Israeli musical pop group
- Keren Peles: Israeli singer-songwriter, poetess and a pianist
- Harel Skaat: Israel singer-songwriter; former representative at Eurovision 2010
- Assaf Amdursky: Israeli singer, songwriter and music producer
Both the audience and the judging panel have a say on whether each act is eligible to proceed to the show’s next stage. At least a 70% of the ‘Yes’ votes is required for an artist to do so, with up to a 60% stake coming from the audience and up to 40% from the jury members.
The hosts of the show are the TV presenter Assi Azar and the Israeli actress Rotem Sala.
