This year a record breaking 20 countries will be taking part in the Junior Eurovision Song Contest to be held in Minsk, Belarus on the 25th November 2018. With around three weeks to go until the competition, Eurovoxx will introduce you to each artist, and give a little insight to the country they will be representing.
Who is Naom?
Noam Dadon, from Yeruham in Israel, was born on June 20th, 2005. Noam has been singing from a young age, and has taken part in many festivals and concerts across Israel, as well as making many television appearances.
In 2013, Noam took part a Master Class, a musical talent show where children aged 8-14 get the chance to sing all time classics in a weekly show.
Noam is also very active on YouTube, and he has uploaded many of his songs and performances onto his official channel, נועם דדון - הערוץ הרשמי.
Aside from music and singing, Noam also enjoys playing sports, particularly Soccer.

How was Noam chosen?
Noam participated in a national final that took place in Ramat Gan, Tel Aviv, hosted by Roni Dalumi and Yaron Brovinsky. Noam beat off 4 other participants to win the ticket to Minsk, who all sang a cover of an Israeli song in front of a panel of judges. The show was not broadcast live, and instead, was shown a few weeks later. Noam's Junior Eurovision song was released a few weeks after the national final took place.

Israel at The Junior Eurovision Song Contest
Israel made their Junior Eurovision debut in 2012 with the group Kids.IL and their song "Let The Music Win." Despite being on of the favourites to win, they unfortunately didn't live up to expectation and finished in 8th place. Israel sat out the next three contests, before returning in 2016 with Shir and Tim. They sang "Follow My Heart" and finished in 15th place with 27 points. Could it be third time lucky for Noam?
All the team at Eurovoxx would like to wish this young, talented singer a big בהצלחה in Minsk!
