The song Leha'amin (To Believe) was chosen tonight for David D'Or to sing in the 2004 Eurovision Song Contest as the Israeli entry.

The song was chosen in a mixed voting of a special jury (Including Israeli past entrants like Lior Narkis and Gali Atari),which attributed 40% of the votes, in addition to the 60% which accounted for the viewers televote. Leha'amin, which David D'Or wrote himslef, won 66% of the viewers televotes and 60% of the jury's vote.

David D'Or said tonight to Ynet.co.il that Leha'amin was his favourite song in the show and he was happy to know it was also the public's favourite. 'The song's stage act tonight was very elementary. As the contest in Turkey gets closer we will make changes to way we perform it on stage', D'Or Adds.

David D'Or will perform with Leha'amin in the 2004 Eurovision Song Contest's semi-final on May 12th, unless the Israeli broadcaster will put it's threat into action, and decide to withdraw from the contest, due to the expected changes in the voting system, as repoted in recent days (read more about this in the link to the Israeli page, on the left column bar).
