Originally, the show was set to feature three live-performances from Eden. However, plans were downscaled due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Instead, viewers are being asked to cast their votes based on music videos. Online voting opened on 19 January and will close during the selection show. The end-result will be determined solely by the public.
The competing songs are:
- “La La Love”
- “Set Me Free”

Eden Alene’s Eurovision journey
While music videos won’t give viewers the same experience as a live performance, viewers will still be familiar with Eden’s talents singing live. She originally won Israel’s Eurovision 2020 artist selection HaKokhav HaBa L’Eurovizion. She was due to perform at Eurovision 2020 with the song “Feker libi”, which was selected through a second song selection show. After Eurovision 2020 was cancelled, KAN gave Eden the return ticket to Rotterdam.
