The program has advertised the auditions on its socials as a “last chance to represent Israel” at Eurovision 2024, following the return of Israel using the show as a selection for Eurovision.

Israel’s Eurovision journey
Israel has a long and wealthy history in the Eurovision Song Contest, making their debut in 1973 with Ilanit and “Ey Sham”. Their first entry scored 97 points, placing 4th. Israel has since gone on to win the Contest on four separate occasions – in 1978, 1979, 1998 and 2018.
Noa Kirel represented Israel in Liverpool during the Eurovision Song Contest 2023 with the song “Unicorn”. Performing at the first semi-final, Israel qualified for the final in 3rd place. In the final itself, Noa finished in 3rd place with a total of 362 points – 177 points from the jury and 185 from the televote.
