Another episode of The Next Star aired in Israel last night, in which a further group of artists auditioned for the opportunity to represent the country at the 2018 Eurovision Song Contest.
In last night’s audition episode, a further 3 artists auditioned to both the audience and the 4-member jury panel, with hopes of qualifying to the next stage of the national selection.
The eventual winner of The Next Star will become Israel’s next representative at the 2018 Eurovision Song Contest, flying to Lisbon in May to compete in one of the 2 semi-finals.
One more artist advances
Whilst 3 artists auditioned in last night’s show, only one artist managed to advance in the competition.
