Israel’s Netta Barzilai wins Eurovision Song Contest 2018 – Israel News

For the fourth time ever, and for the first time in 20 years, Israel took home the top prize at the Eurovision singing competition this year. Netta Barzilai, a 25-year-old from Hod Hasharon, received the most votes for her song “Toy” and won the iconic glass microphone in Lisbon, Portugal, just before midnight on Saturday.

“I’m so happy – thank you so much,” said an emotional Barzilai when she took the stage after her win. “Thank you so much for choosing difference, thank you so much for accepting differences between us… I love my country, next time in Jerusalem!”

Later that night, during a press conference, Barzilai said “everyone gave great performances tonight but somebody had to win.
I’m happy they picked me this year.” The singer added that she was overjoyed that people voted for her, “choosing something different. Choosing something that’s evolved. Choosing 2018. I am proud and honored to do this. I am proud and honored to bring this magical event to Israel next year.”
