Israel wins Eurovision 2018

Eurovision is the biggest and goofiest music competition in the Sagittarius arm of the galaxy. Forty-three nations hold competitions and then send their winners to the finale, which in this case, was held in Lisbon.

After tight voting by national juries and a phone/text in vote from the audience, the winner was Israel’s Netta with a song called “Toy.” That means next year’s final will be held in Jerusalem.

Damn. I was rooting for this piece of weirdness from Moldova’s DeReDos.
