Late last year it was revealed that the Israeli broadcaster, IBA, has chosen Harel Skaat to represent them in Oslo. The runner up for a young singers contest in Israel would be given several song to choose from in a televised national selection show.

Now, the titles of the four candidates have been revealed. You can find them in the list below.

  • Le'an? (Where to?) - Composed by Eyal Shahar, lyrics by Sahar Hagay and Eyal Shahar
  • Millim (Words) - Composed by Tomer Hadadi, lyrics by Noam Horev, 
  • Ela'yich (To You) - Composed by Ohad Chitman, lyrics by Noam Horev, 
  • Le'hitkarev (To Get Closer) - Composed by Nitzan Keikov, lyrics by Sahar Hagay 

The four finalists were chosen from several dozens of entries which were submitted to the broadcaster and they were selected by a panel of music specialists. 

"I am very excited, as the national final is getting nearer as well as the Eurovision Song Contest itself. I hope and believe it will be a wonderful performance and an unforgetable experience for me," said Harel Skaat.

The Israeli selection for Europe's favourite TV-show will be held on the 14th of March but the songs will be introduced already on the 6th of March.

Last year Israel finished 16th in the Final of the Eurovision Song Contest with Noa & Mira Awad's There Must Be Another Way.
