Netta Barzilai Of Israel Wins Eurovision Song Contest

Barzilai has an “extensive background in music,” according to Eurovision’s website. She studied music in high school and at Israel’s Rimon School of Music.
This year’s contest, featuring singers from 43 countries, was broadcast from Lisbon — Portugal which won the 2017 event.
Cyprus, which was one of the other early favorites, took home second place and Austria was third.
But perhaps the biggest talking point of the evening was the protester who charged the stage during British singer SuRie’s performance of “Storm.”

Wearing a bandana and a backpack, the man apparently shouted “Nazis of the UK media, we demand freedom,” after grabbing the microphone from the singer. He was quickly dragged offstage by a security agent, and SuRie was handed another microphone while barely a missing a beat.
Her team was offered the chance of repeating the song, but declined, saying they had been proud of the original performance.
“Well, I’ve always said anything can happen at Eurovision,” tweeted the performer afterward. She finished 24th out of 26 countries.
Eurovision is staged by public broadcasters who are part of the European Broadcasting Union, an organization with members from western Europe to Russia and the Middle East.
