In October, the European Broadcasting Union announced that only 37 countries will participate in Eurovision 2023, the lowest number since 2014. This increases Kirel's chances of advancing to the final.
Kirel will appear in the first semi-final on Tuesday, May 9, along with 14 other countries: Ireland, Latvia, Malta, Norway, Serbia, Portugal and Croatia, Azerbaijan, Netherlands, Moldova, Finland, Czech Republic, Sweden and Switzerland.
A professional committee of the broadcasting corporation chose Kirel in July to represent Israel in the competition from a closed list of the 78 artists played in Israel or those who stood out in the charts of the last three years.
