The Israeli entry to the 2017 Eurovision Song Contest in Kiev has qualified for Saturday's final along with nine other countries.

The song, "I Feel Alive" by Imri, will be competing against 25 other songs on Saturday. This is the third year in a row that Israel has qualified for the Eurovision final and the seventh time overall since the semi-finals system was introduced.

Israel's performance in Thursday's second semi-final was the final performance of the night.

In 2015, Nadav Guedj's song "Golden Boy" was the first Israeli entry in five years to qualify for the final, in which it did exceptionally well by making the top ten.
