About Noa Kirel and the Selection Process
As you all know, last summer the 21-year-old pop singer Noa Kirel was internally selected to represent Israel at Eurovision 2023.
Noa was selected among the top-tier Israeli musicians.
A professional committee, including 9 members, ranked her as the leading candidate.
After debating between the 3 songs, Noa Kirel, her team, and the national broadcaster came to the conclusion: Noa Kirel will perform the song “Unicorn“!
The song talks about women’s empowerment. One of the other songs that was considered talks about love.
The song “Unicorn” is up-tempo, with the majority of lyrics in English. However, you are able to hear some words in Hebrew as well.
The song features some oriental elements.
“I am very excited. The selection is the first significant step that marks Eurovision in May. We wrote a song that moves me personally every time I sing or hear it, and I can’t wait for you to hear it”
What do you think about the shiny “Unicorn” that will take Israel to Liverpool this year?
