What's it all about?

This year broadcaster IBA is pulling out all of the stops when it comes to KDAM 2013, the Israeli national selection for the Eurovision Song Contest. This year 30 songs competed in three Semi-Finals on the 26th, 27th and 28th of February with 10 qualifying for the Grand Final on the 7th of March, and tonight the line-up was completed with the conclusion of the Second Chance Round.

Israel will participate in the second Semi-Final of the 2013 Eurovision Song Contest to be held in Malmö, Sweden on the 16th of May.

Israel has had a long and relatively successful history at the Eurovision Song Contest, having won in 1978, 1979 and 1998. Now the country that brought us among others Dana International is back, and this time in style.
