Chronology
Preceded byKokhav Nolad

HaKokhav HaBa (Hebrew: הַכּוֹכָב הַבָּא, translated as "The Next Star"; formerly HaKokhav HaBa LaErovizion, Rising Star to the Eurovision) is an Israeli interactive reality singing competition, which was first broadcast on Channel 2 from 17 September 2013. It is based on the Rising Star franchise created by Keshet Broadcasting. The show is a continuation of the former program Kokhav Nolad (meaning "A Star is Born") which featured aspiring singers competing for a winning title. The program's format combines the internet, smartphones and television and is filmed live.

The shows inaugurative season in 2013 was won by Evyatar Korkus. Since season 2 until season 7, the winner was given the opportunity to represent Israel in the Eurovision Song Contest.[1] 2014–2015 winner Nadav Guedj represented Israel in 2015 with "Golden Boy" 2015–2016 winner Hovi Star represented Israel in 2016 with "Made of Stars", 2016–2017 winner Imri Ziv represented Israel in 2017 with "I Feel Alive", and 2017–2018 winner Netta Barzilai who went on to win the 2018 contest with "Toy". Kobi Marimi won in 2019 and represented Israel on home soil in Tel Aviv. Eden Alene won in 2020, and was due to represent Israel with the song Feker Libi, however the contest was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Alene was re-announced as the Israeli representative for the upcoming 2021 contest a few days after its cancellation. Starting from season 8, the prize for the winner of the show will no longer be representing Israel in the Eurovision Song Contest (The X Factor Israel received that honor instead), but instead, the prize will be money for helping for the winner developing his career, just like it used to be in season 1.

Hebrew language

Hebrew is a Northwest Semitic language of the Afroasiatic language family. Historically, it is one of the spoken languages of the Israelites and their longest-surviving descendants, the Jews and Samaritans. It was largely preserved throughout history as the main liturgical language of Judaism and Samaritanism. Hebrew is the only Canaanite language still spoken today, and serves as the only truly successful example of a dead language that has been revived. It is also one of only two Northwest Semitic languages still in use, with the other being Aramaic.

Format

As the season begins, each contestant is asked to perform a well-known song in front of judges. After the song, a vote is taken among judges whether to transfer the applicant to the test stage facing the audience at home. If the judges are not sure about how to vote, the contestant is required to perform another song, and then a decision is made.

Contestants who do move forward must then sing in front of an audience. Viewers then connect with an app at makoTV and decide in real time whether a contestant passes or does not pass.

Judges also influence the test stage - all judges may support the promotion of the contestant and thereby add 8% percent if there are five judges or 10% if there are four. Once the contestant reaches 70% of votes they "pass" and the screen opens and the contestant goes to the next level. 14 singers then move on to a section where the judges and the audience at home vote. At the final stage, four singers are left and one will be elected "The Next Star".
