Israel's The Next Star long selection has come to and end and we have the four finalists. Now all is left is the grand final next week, Monday February 13.
In the end they are the most obvious and predictable ones; Imri Ziv who has been backing singer in Eurovision already twice (2015, 2016), the accapella group The Beatbox Element, Julieta of Kdam Eurovision fame and the biggest favorite of them all Diana Golbi, who won another talent show in 2010 and has since released records and kept herself in business.
The final selection was held in various duels:
Imri Ziv (95%) vs Sapir Nahon (73%)
The Beatbox Element (83%) vs. Julieta (76%)
Ta-la-te (59%) vs. Diana Golbi (87%)
Then the losers were put against each other and Julieta made it
Julieta (85%) vs Ta-La-Te (26%) vs Sapir Nahon (75%)
