“Made of Stars”
The Israeli representative at the Eurovision Song Contest 2016 was determined through the “Next Star for Eurovision 2016” talent show. 23 heats beginning on 5 December 2015 were held before the final, resulting in 4 finalists.
In the first round each artist competed in duels against another artist, performing cover versions, with the winner progressing to the super final. One of the losing artists was awarded a wildcard to the super final by the expert jury. These three artists then performed their potential Eurovision song, with the winner then decided.
Hovi Star and Nofar Salman both performed “Made of Stars” but with different arrangements.
|1||Hovi Star||Made of Stars||68%||1st|
|2||Ella Daniel||Somebody Out There||58%||3rd|
|3||Nofar Salman||Made of Stars||67%||2nd|
|–||Gil Hadash||Follow the Sun||–||–|
A revamp and new lyrics were given to Made of Stars before it was performed at Eurovision.
