Three songs selected in Israel, final on March 6
IBA, the Israeli broadcaster, announced today that 87 songs had been submitted for consideration for Mei Finegold, who was selected internally earlier.
The 87 songs have been anonymously screened by a jury and cut down to three.
The three songs:
- Same Heart (Rami Talmid)
- Nisheret Iti (Liran de Paz, Hen Metzger Adar)
- Be Proud (Mei Finegold)
Part of the rules stated that the selected artist should contribute at least one song among the three. Be Proud is written by Mei herself. Clips of the songs will be presented at some point later in February.
The Israeli selection will take place on March 6, where the public will get to vote for their favorite song.
At the allocation draw in Copenhagen, Israel was drawn into the first half of the second semi-final, after being placed in the second semi-final by the EBU at IBA’s request. The first semi-final falls on the Israeli independence day.
