After Eurovision victory, Netta welcomed home by 20000 Israeli fans

Netta Barzilai on Eurovision 2018

Netta Barzilai, a flamboyantly dressed singer whose instrument of choice is an electronic looper, was among the favorites to win the annual contest, a chintzy display of musical acts from more than 40 European countries and beyond.

Netta took congratulatory phone calls from the nation's leaders.

The 2018 contest was won by Brazil's representative Netta Barzilai, handing her homeland its fourth Eurovision crown with her song Israel For Toy.

Today is Jerusalem Day, the date on the Jewish Calendar when a large part of our Historic, Biblical Homeland was liberated in the 1967 Six Days War after thousands of years of occupation, most recently by Jordan. "We are all hoarse, we celebrated all night and we didn't sleep". In fact, Israel is the only country ever to have won Eurovision and not participated the following year. I love you, keep that going. "A lot of congratulations to us and all of Israel". It also came a day before the United States officially moved its embassy to Jerusalem from Tel Aviv.

But after security detained the activist, SuRie continued her performance and felt that the "the lyrics took on a new meaning: 'Hold your head up, don't give up'". To others, it marks the further ongoing occupation of Palestinian land. The Israeli state has murdered dozens of people for months now for simply protesting the situation.

If Eurovision really is about unity, about celebrating what we have in common, these desperate attempts to politicise it only cheapen the whole thing. Instead of the typical greeting "good evening" followed by the jury's capital city, the Jerusalem-based Israeli jury received only "Shalom Israel".

The study aimed to assess whether a country's performance in the competition is associated with life satisfaction and suicide mortality.

Barzilai bagged a sweeping victory at the Eurovision with 529 points, with the song "Fuego" sung by Eleni Foureira from Cyprus, coming in second with 436 points.

He added: "Our research shows that science can be used to test unexpected questions, but more importantly we hope it will encourage people to consider how our wellbeing, and consequently our health, can be influenced by a range of factors in the public sphere". Netta Barzilai's "excellent" song could not win Eurovision "because Europe is imbued with bi-coloured anti-Semitism: The classic Christian anti-Semitism of Holocaust's perpetrators and Muslim anti-Semitism that's striking root" there, he wrote, vowing to eat his own "hat" if he's proven wrong.

Fans of the Eurovision Song Contest were elated on Saturday as Israel was deemed the winning country. The last time it won was in 1998.
