Over the years broadcaster IBA has used a number of formats to choose its representative for Europe's Favourite TV Show, from its much revered K'dam format to selecting Mei Finegold internally in 2014. However, this year IBA has teamed up with production company Tedy Productions and broadcaster Keshet to choose its entry through the talent show הכוכב הבא (Rising Star), where the winner of the competition will travel to Vienna to represent Israel at the 2015 Eurovision Song Contest.
The Final will take place tonight in Jerusalem and the winner will be chosen by the viewers using a special app and the programme's celebrity judges.
The four remaining contestants are:
  • Sari Nachmias
  • Avia Shoshani
  • Nadav Guedj
  • Iki Levy & The Rasta Hebrew Men.

Following the winner being decided, a professional committee will choose the song in a few days (stay tuned!).
In 2014 Mei Finegold did not manage to qualify to the Grand Final of Europe's Favourite TV Show in Copenhagen with her song Same Heart. You can see the video below:
