Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu began his weekly cabinet meeting on Sunday by acknowledging Israeli singer Netta Barzilai's win a day earlier in the 2018 Eurovision Song Contest, an global singing competition.

Barzilai's win gave Israel its fourth Eurovision victory, its first since 1998, granting the nation hosting duties for 2019's contest.

Thousands of people from all over the world enjoyed three spectacular live shows at Lisbon's Altice Arena this week, with an expected 200 million viewers tuning in on television. Dana International was the first transgender singer to win the Eurovision Song Contest.

She added: "I will be at the next pride [parade] in Tel Aviv".

A team of scientists focused on data collected in may and June - the period of holding of the Eurovision song contest from 2009 to 2015.

In a gracious gesture, Mauboy paid tribute to the competition's victor - Israel's Netta Barzilai.

The first trailer out for Salman Khan's Race 3
We really hope he takes the action in Race 3 a notch higher than ever and stuns his fans like never before. Before we get to his tweets , let's give you a little brief about what's going on with Race 3 trailer .

About this in his Twitter said Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Israeli public broadcaster Kan partnered with Rabbi Interactive Agency of Tel Aviv to offer an augmented-reality Facebook effect using Barzilai's photos and clips.

During her much-anticipated performance, Netta was joined by her pink-haired backing singers and dancers as they do their trademark chicken moves. Not only thanks for a wonderful song and unbelievable performance and incredible victory, and for bringing the Eurovision to Jerusalem next year - but for who you are.

Her winning song's main line is "I'm not your toy, You stupid boy, I'll take you down".

Izhar Cohen was Israel's first Eurovision victor back in 1978. "I am happy that we managed to create a reason for joy in a country that does not have a lot of reasons to celebrate". "We looked into it and were surprised to see there may be a link". Tomorrow the United States of America is finally opening its Embassy in Jerusalem.

On Saturday night, the Eurovision television hosts turned to each country to hear their votes. Instead of the typical greeting "good evening" followed by the jury's capital city, the Jerusalem-based Israeli jury received only "Shalom Israel". At a short press conference held alongside the plane, Barzilai said: "This is a great moment for me, for the [Israeli] delegation and for the country".

And that's What's Trending Today... Ashley Thompson adapted it for Learning English.
