TEL AVIV, ISRAEL – Israel is considering changing the song with which its Eurovision representative, Hovi Star, won the national selection “Rising Star for Eurovision”.
Due to the mixed reviews his winning entry “Made of Stars” received from the press and public, Hovi is allegedly considering using a song performed by Ella Daniel in the competition entitled “Somebody out there”.
Doron Madaly, who wrote “Made of Stars”, as well as Israel’s 2015 entry, has given his approval for the song change. Countries must formally submit their final entries for the Eurovision Song Contest by next Saturday.
