Huge celebrations in Israel after Eurovision win

Huge celebrations in Israel after Eurovision win

Barzilai, a smiling 25-year-old live looping artist shouted after being named the victor.

Barzilai, 25, is the fourth Israeli to win the Eurovision contest.

The win caused it's own drama as supporters and opponents decried political frictions between Israel and other countries in the Middle East. Many Israelis see it as proof that the Jewish state can overcome those seeking to boycott it over its treatment of the Palestinians.

Meanwhile, UK contender SuRie came 24th out of 26th with her song Storm.

Netta Barzilai Toy with the song won the Eurovision song contest-2018, scoring 529 points.

The announcement was made by Prime Minister of Israel in social networks.

"This is a great moment for me, for the [Israeli] delegation and for the country".

"Together we will expose the lovely face of Jerusalem to the whole world", he said. It later annexed the eastern sector in a move not recognized internationally.

He said security forces in Jerusalem were on high alert because of the embassy event but also because of the annual Jerusalem Day march, which includes a nationalistic parade Sunday through Arab neighborhoods in the city, Nakba Day events and, later in the week, the start of the holy Muslim month of Ramadan. Votes came in live Saturday from the capitals of participating countries. I love you, keep that going. "Next time in Jerusalem!".

The contest largely shed its traditional hallmarks of glitz and glitter in favor of a more restrained and tasteful tone in Lisbon, which was hosting the event because it won previous year with Salvador Sobral's sober and subdued ballad "Amar pelos Dois".

A win at the hugely popular Eurovision contest is as big as it gets.

Benjamin Netanyahu celebrated Israeli Eurovision win with a chicken dance on his way to a cabinet meeting. "We received another one last night with Netta's thrilling and suspenseful victory", he said.

From Semester 2 this year the University of Melbourne will offer a subject called Eurovisions (EURO10002). The choice of the city where the contest will take place remains at the discretion of the winning country's leadership. But even this ludicrous spectacle wasn't spared the hot-take treatment, with some commentators playing up the fact that the song was supposedly inspired by the #MeToo movement.

Speaking about the chicken noises she makes during the song, she told Wiwibloggs: "The noises are supposed to imitate the voices of a coward - a chicken".

On Saturday night, she won out over a sultry, hip-shaking pop star from Cyprus who wore a glittering outfit that bared her navel and flat stomach.

"Thank you for allowing diversity".
