MusicThe first candidate for the Eurovision 2023 Song Contest has been announced. Noa Kirill (21 years old) will represent Israel. This was announced by public broadcaster CAN on Monday. Kirill is a big name in her homeland.
Kirill, 21, has already recorded several hit songs in Israel and won the MTV Europe Music Award for Best Israeli Artist four times. It was selected after an internal selection by a panel of nine experts.
It was different for this year’s Eurovision Song Contest in Turin. Israel then chose the song contest candidate through “The X Factor Israel”. This program was won by Michael Ben David, which allowed him to represent Israel in the Eurovision Song Contest. Then he was stuck in the semi-finals. In 2018, Nita also won her selection with a talent show, but after that successful year it has become frustrating and bleak for Israelis.

Nothing is known so far about the song with which the singer is participating in the Eurovision Song Contest. The location of the 67th edition of the Song Festival has yet to be determined. The tradition is that the next edition will be organized by the winning country, but the European Broadcasting Union decided that the song contest in 2023 could not be held in Ukraine due to the ongoing war with Russia. Great Britain has now entered the picture as a potential organizer and talks are underway with the BBC. Glasgow appears to be a favorite as a host city.
