Last year Eden Alene won the Israeli artist selection, HaKokhav Haba L’Eurovision (The Next Star for Eurovision), for Eurovision 2020. She was supposed to represent her country with the rhythmic song Feker Libi, which contained lyrics in four languages: English, Amharic, Hebrew, and Arabic.
The Israeli public broadcaster announced last year that Eden Alene had been internally selected to represent the country in Rotterdam in 2021.
Eden Alene’s song for Eurovision 2021 will be selected through HaShir Shelanu L’Eurovizion over two rounds: An online elimination round, and the final. The first round consisted 9 songs, and only 3 songs were selected: 2 songs were selected by online voting, and another was selected by jury.
The qualified songs are all contemporary pop songs primarily performed in English, with some added Hebrew, and in the case of the 3rd song, also French. The songs are:
