“The Next Star”, the singing reality show that will choose Israel’s representative for Eurovision 2015, is moving into second gear, and we already have the first five finalists. Among them is Orit Biansey — yes, the Israeli Beyoncé.
Here’s the score. Forty-five acts advanced from the first auditions, and now they’re singing to the death in round two. During each show a group of 15 contestants are invited into a “rehearsal studio” and before they begin to sing, the judges pop up from a secret room right next to them. During the impromptu audition the judges vote and every singer that passes waits in “The five room” (there’s only room for five people in it). If the judges would like another contestant to pass after the room is full, they have to ask one of them to leave and make room. #sorryboutthat.
Here are the first five finalists who advanced from the first show on Tuesday:
We’ll learn the final 10 finalists next week.
