Israel Wins Eurovision 2018 – The song TOY performed by Netta opened with chicken clucking noises and flapping arms.

Netta was so happy.  Especially because it was chosen for being different. She thanked the voters for voting for something different and accepting diversity.

She said she loved her country and added See you in Jerusalem in 2019.

Music critics had tipped her earlier in the semi-finals.  While they may not have liked the song they praised the fact it attracted a lot of fan support.

The Eurovision 2018 final in Lisbon, Portugal, was watched by an estimated TV audience of 200 million.

Israel’s entry Netta won the contest with the song Toy, and stood out with an unconventional singing style likened to chicken clucking.

Was it a good win?  Should Netta have won it?  Why not?  She was voted in mainly by the public!
