by Gil Laufer 253 views

Shows 6 and 7 of Rising Star for Eurovision 2017 will be aired this week, today (Monday) and tomorrow (Tuesday). Six acts out of eight will advance to the Semifinal stage which will be aired next week.

The contest is an artist selection and so the Israeli entry is expected to be known only after the winner will be announced. All shows are pre-recorded except for the final, which will be live.

During the previous five shows, auditions were held and twenty acts found themselves one stage closer to the Eurovision Song Contest. However, a second phase of closed auditions has reduced the number of participants to eight.


  1. Beatbox Element
  2. Diana Golbi
  3. Hallelujah (Halli) Lewis
  4. Imri Ziv
  5. Julietta
  6. Sapir Nahon
  7. Ta-La-Te
  8. Yona Shabin


Shows 6 and 7 will begin at 21:00 local time (20:00 CET) but tonight’s show will last for 1 hour and 45 minutes while tomorrow’s show is only 30 minutes long. The show is hosted by Asi Azar and Rotem Sela. The decision on which acts will advance to semifinal is all in the hands of the audience during the recording, and the expert jury which is made of four artists: Harel Skaat, Keren Peles, Asaf Amdurski and Static & Ben-El Tavori.
