On December 29, Israeli broadcaster IBA confirmed that 28-year old Harel Skaat will represent Israel at Eurovision 2010. Skaat first rose to stardom during the second season of Kokhav Nolad, Israel’s answer to X-Factor / American Idol. Despite finishing second in that contest, his stellar voice, muscular physique and boyish face have kept him in the limelight. Wiwi thinks that Skaat may soon rival Sakis Rouvas as the sexiest Eurovision entry ever. Now that they’ve chosen their act, the IBA has begun its search for Skaat’s song, which will be selected on the pre-Eurovision Kdam program. Check out some videos of Skaat below!
