Israel has won the 2018 Eurovision Song Contest!

“Toy” by Netta, the long-time bookmakers’ and fans’ favourite, won the grand final on Saturday night ahead of its recent usurper in the betting markets, “Fuego” by Eleni Foureira representing Cyprus. It was a dominant victory in the end, with Israel scoring 529 points to Cyprus’s 436. The rest of the top five was made up by Austria, Germany and Italy, all of whom exceeded 300 points.

Cesár Sampson from Austria had been the surprise leader after the jury voting, but he swiftly fell down the scoreboard as Netta took a clear win in the televote ahead of Eleni.

Last place in the final was taken by the home country Portugal and the song “O jardim”, albeit with a fairly substantial 39 points – nothing to be ashamed of there.

You can see the full scoreboard below. More reaction and response over the next few days, including what will surely be a long and intriguing View from San Francisco from our US-based Israeli writer Shi!

Does "I Love Belarus" still get played at Euroclub? It always seemed an incongruous dancefloor choice even back in 2011...
