"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.
