January 1, 2018

This week gone, the next round of Rising Star was aired, last week the auditions came to a close and this week the surviving acts performed again for a spot in the live shows.

The 70 remaining contestant performed in front of the jury once more and this time the jury alone had to come to a decision on the 20 artists to advance, the 20 still in the running are as follows:


Neta Barzilai


Riki Ben Ari 


Adva Omer


José Steinberg


Chen Aharoni 


Shir Baruch 


Eden Meiri 




Sarit Hativa 


Jackie Gaforov


Ofir Harush 


The Choice 


Gal Yaakobi 




Shir Gadasi 


Tal Mizrahi 


Howie Danao 


Ravit Batashvilli 


Rinat Bar


Israel's participation in Lisbon was in serious doubt over the summer after broadcaster IBA ceased broadcasting and was shut down in 2017, with the Eurovision final being on of the last shows the broadcaster every showed, however after being picked up by IPBC, the EBU granted them permission to compete, despite the broadcaster not meeting full EBU membership reuirements at this current moment in time
