Kdam Eurovision 2005[edit]

For the first time since 2001, a full-scale Israeli selection process was held on 2 March. Unlike previous years, IBA invited only established artists to participate. Among the better-known participants were Shiri Maimon (runner-up of the popular Pop Idol based show, Kokhav Nolad in 2003) as well as Svika Pick, composer and producer of the 1998 Eurovision Song Contest winner Diva.

The final was held on 2 March 2005, with the winning entry being selected by 5 regional juries and public televoting, which were divided into 5 separate dialing areas. Shiri Maimon's song "Hasheket Shenish'ar" (The Silence That Remained) won the event to become Israel's entry in Kiev. The song was written by Pini Aaronbayev and Eyal Shachar and composed by Pini Aaronbayev.
