The 2010 esctoday.com National Final Awards will be held between April and May, which means between the national final season and the Eurovision Song Contest. We will repeat the same format with two rounds for nominations which was used this year – you can read how it works here. However, this time the individual polls for each country will always be held right after the national final, when the entries are still fresh. You can vote for your favourite performance not to qualify in the Israeli national final here and for your favourite song not to qualify here.
In 2009, Israel was represented by Noa & Mira Awad with the song There must be another way. They qualified to the final from the first semi-final after finishing in the 7th place, but finished in the 16th place in the final.
