Last minute changes to the line-up
As mentioned above, drama hit the KDAM 2013 camp today as participant Kathleen Reiter withdrew from the competition in a shock move. As such, her place has been given to Nicki Goldstein, who was runner up in the Second Chance round with We Are One.
A magnificent selection
This year, Israel has pulled out all the stops to choose its entry for Malmö, and KDAM 2013 has been an impressive series of programing showcasing some of the best talent the country has to offer.
After three Semi-Finals held on consecutive days, a Second Chance round and of course a little bit of drama, we have now reached the ten acts as mentioned above.
Israel will take part in the second Semi-Final of the 2013 Eurovision Song Contest to be held on the 16th of May at the Malmö Arena in Malmö, Sweden.
