Eurovision 2018: Netta wins for Israel with Toy

AKIPRESS.COM - Israel's Netta has won the Eurovision Song Contest for her quirky dance song Toy - complete with its trademark chicken dance, BBC reported.

She had been an early favourite, but the vote went down to the wire with Cyprus finishing in second place.

Netta thanked juries and the public for "choosing different" as she lifted the glass microphone trophy.

UK entrant SuRie, whose performance was interrupted by a stage invader, finished 24th out of the 26 countries.
