Eurovision in Jerusalem On and Right After Lag B'Omer

Евровидение-2018 участники первого полуфинала

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu congratulated the singer Netta Barzilai on her victory at the Eurovision Song Contest and promised that the competition will be held in Jerusalem next year.

Eurovision 2018 singer SuRie had her performance interrupted by a stage invader during the show last night.

Israel won Eurovision with 529 points, followed at a decent distance by Cyprus with 436 points.

The move has alienated Palestinians, who see it as step away from peace and the chance for them to create an independent state alongside Israel, also with Jerusalem as its capital.

Greeted by dozens of fans, the singing champion landed at Tel Aviv's Aiport Monday morning. Since then, the contest has grown to include nations that can not conceivably be called European, most notably Australia, while the music has become increasingly disco orientated.

The Eurovision song contest was combining in-house judging and popular reaction to musical performances decades before "Idol" came along.

On the contrary. Embassies are moving to Jerusalem, exports (especially of Israeli weapons) are up, and next year's Eurovision competition will be held in the unified (read: occupied) Jerusalem.

But Portugal - which hosting this year's event because its entry, Salvador Sobral, won with a restrained solo ballad last year in Ukraine - is putting on a show with stylish, elegant performances by a strong field of competitors.

Norton, who will commentate on the live musical extravaganza for the 10th year running from Lisbon, Portugal, said the standard of this year's entries is "really high". The Palestinians claim east Jerusalem as the capital of their future state, a position with wide worldwide backing.

That means the 63rd Eurovision Song Contest is heading to what many predict will be an exceptional year. "We received another one last night with Netta's thrilling and suspenseful victory", he said.

The lyrics say, "I'm not your toy, You stupid boy, I'll take you down".

After several seconds of confusion, SuRie resumed her song and finished to rapturous applause. Thank you so much for accepting the differences between us.

"This is not in line with the EBU's values of universality and inclusivity and our proud tradition of celebrating diversity through music", the EBU said in a statement.
