Entry to Eurovision

"Ein davar" - Tal Sondak

"There is a song that rises in me again and again, it's OK, it's OK, it's OK"

The Israeli Final was held on December 28th at the Neve-Ilan studios in Jerusalem, hosted by Duo Datz who represented Israel in 1991. The winner was chosen by 3 regional juries, an "expert" jury in the studio audience and televoting. The 3 regional juries voted in the normal Eurovision style (1-12 points), while the "expert" jurys' votes were weighted 5 times that of a jury (5-60 points) and the televoting was weighted 9 times that of a jury (9-108 points).
