Israel’s HaKokhav HaBa aka Rising Star concluded last night with four acts competing in the final line up. Sixteen year old Nadav Guedj fended off competition from runners up Iky Levy & The Rasta Hebrew Men and finalists Sari Nachmias and Avia Shoshani who were eliminated after the first round of voting to become Israel’s 2015 Eurovision candidate.
As of yet no song has been selected for Nadav to sing at this year’s Eurovision, but this is expected to be chosen in the next few weeks. Israel will compete in the second semi final on May 21st in Vienna. Nadav is hoping to reverse the fortunes of last year when Israel failed to qualify for the final with Mei Finegold’s ‘Same Heart’.
