During the oikotimes.com coverage of Eurovision Live Concert 2013 in Setubal, Portugal, our partners David and Serafin in collaboration with Juergen Boerning from http://www.radiointernational.tv interviewed Chen Aharoni.
Chen came into fame after taking part in 2007 in season 5 of Kokhav Nolad structured on the international Idol series. He was eliminated after a showdown with Shlomi Bar’el before the finals. Aharoni finished 4th overall, with Bar’el ending up third. The 2007 title was won by Bo’az Ma’uda with Marina Maximilian Blumin as runner-up.
