Another weekend of The Next Star was televised over the past 2 evenings in Israel, as the country continues its long selection process, with this weekend being its seventeenth and eighteenth show.
Nine artists performed over the past 2 nights in Israel, each of whom performed individually to both the audience and jury panel.
The eight artists who received the highest percentage of the vote directly advanced to the next stage of the competition, with the act receiving the lowest percentage of the vote being eliminated from the selection.
