Eurovision winner Netta Barzilai branded 'real cow' by Israeli Prime Minister

Hundreds of Israelis celebrate in Rabin Square in Tel Aviv after Israeli contestant Netta Barzilai won the Eurovision song contest with her song

The City Hall building there was lit up to spell "Toy".

The 25-year-old took to the stage wearing a pink and black silk kimono - traditional Japanese costume with her hair in roller buns, a style synonymous with Japanese culture. In the following years, Israel got a few good results, but didn't win again until Dana International, the most well-known transgender in the country pulled off first place.

Israel was tipped to be the favourite to win a few weeks ago, surpassing other notable acts such as Cyprus and Austria. Many Israelis see it as proof that the Jewish state can overcome those seeking to boycott it over its treatment of the Palestinians.

Mauboy said she believed Australia had a strong future in Eurovision. The live Eurovision broadcasts in Israel on social networks, such as on public broadcaster Kan's Facebook page, drew about 750,000 viewers. It later annexed the eastern sector in a move not recognized internationally.

Tel Aviv Mayor Ron Huldai introduced Barzilai, using the phrase of endearment used repeatedly since Barzilai's win "kapara aleich", meaning "we love you", but also a play on words connected with Barzilai's famous chicken-clucking sounds. "Next time in Jerusalem!".

Champions League final can make Liverpool legends

He was speaking at an inaugural event marking Jerusalem Day, an annual celebration of the reunification of the Holy City under Israeli sovereignty following the country's victory in the six-day war in 1967.

So, it was within that context that Israel offered a contestant with a serious chance to win. The government is also relishing in Trump's warm embrace, his recognition of Jerusalem as Israel's capital and his nullifying of the nuclear deal with Israel's arch-enemy Iran.

Mr Benjamin Netanyahu briefly broke out in a chicken dance in tribute to Netta Barzilai's triumph when he was on his way to a weekly Cabinet meeting on Sunday. These days Jerusalem is being blessed with many gifts. "We are all hoarse, we celebrated all night and we didn't sleep".

The team, who analysed data collected around the time of the Eurovision Song Contest (May and June) between 2009-2015, found that people reported being more satisfied with their life if their country had done well in the Eurovision Song Contest that year. But even this ludicrous spectacle wasn't spared the hot-take treatment, with some commentators playing up the fact that the song was supposedly inspired by the #MeToo movement.
