The entry that will represent Israel at the 2022 Eurovision Song Contest will be determined over a number of shows. Following the X Factor Israeli semi-final on Channel 13 a second semi-final will be broadcast later on KAN 11, where each contestant who made it to the final four will perform two original songs selected for them by the professional committee that listened to the submitted songs. Of the two songs, one song per artist will qualify for the final.
In the final, which will be broadcast on Reshet 13, each finalist will perform the song that qualified for the final. The winning contestant will represent Israel at the Eurovision Song Contest 2022 in Italy.
