Biography

Nadav Guedj (Hebrew: נדב גדג'‎; born 2 November 1998) is a French-Israeli singer who represented Israel in the Eurovision Song Contest 2015. He is the winner of season two of HaKokhav HaBa ("The Next Star"). Guedj was born in Paris.

Nadav entered the second season HaKokhav HaBa, the Israeli national selections for Eurovision Song Contest 2015 where he became one of the sixteen finalists. He is the youngest participant of the contest's second season, just turning sixteen when turned up for the first audition day. He sang "Russian Roulette" by Rihanna for his first audition and Stevie Wonder's "Lately" for the second audition. In the second round of the contest proper, he performed "Halo" by Beyoncé. Nadav then advanced to the semi-finals of the contest along with six other contestants where he performed "Mirrors" by Justin Timberlake. He then reached the finals of the contest with four other contestants after performing "Locked Out of Heaven" by Bruno Mars in a duets battle against fellow contestant Orit Biansay. Nadav then won HaKokhav HaBa with his performance of Beyoncé's Halo on 17 February 2015, making him Israel's entrant to the Eurovision Song Contest 2015. On 26 February 2015, it was announced that he would be singing Golden Boy at the Eurovision. On 12 March 2015, Golden Boy was released and is Israel's first entry to the contest that's entirely sung in English.

The postcards – short video clips introducing the participants – of this year's contest witness the slogan "Building Bridges". Each of the clips start with every contestant receiving an invitation to Austria in their home country. The story continues with the contestants making their way to one of Austria's nine states where they have an individual task to fulfill.

Nadav Guedj's postcard was filmed on location in Tel Aviv and the renowned skiing resort Lech am Arlberg in Vorarlberg, where Guedj is seen spray painting a gondola lift with the Austrian cartoon artist and musician Bernd Püribauer.

Nadav frequently listens to music of the RnB, pop, soul & hip hop genres and cites Pharrell Williams, Usher, Beyoncé , Chris Brown, Maroon 5, Snoop Dogg, Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson, Justin Timberlake, Timbaland and others as his favorite artists. He is hailed in his home country as the "Israeli Justin Timberlake" because of the similarity of his musical style, but he describes himself as "simple and regular Nadav".
