    So a couple weeks ago, Eurovision 2018 finished.
    Some of you are all like:
    Eurovision! I love that contest! I watch it every year!
    and the rest of you are all like:
    wtf is eurovision

    Let me explain.
    Eurovision is an annual song contest with participants from most of Europe including some other countries like Israel and Australia. There is a Jury and a Televoting system for each country, and you are allowed to vote for which song you think was the best as well as the Jury. The Jury can give a country up to 12 points, which would be really lucky for the nation's song. The Jury and Televote points are added up and whoever came first (i.e the country with the most points) wins the competition and Eurovision will be held in the country that won.

    This year, Israel won the competition, with Cyprus in 2nd and Portugal came last (though the actual competition was held in Portugal). This means that next year, Israel will hold Eurovision 2019.

    However, a lot of people criticised Netta (the singer of the Israeli song) because they didn't like the song and although it was singing about female rights, they said that the lyrics did not make sense. The song is named Toy, so I'll let you decide.

    Click HERE to see Israel's song, which achieved 1st place.
    Click HERE to see Cyprus's song, which achieved 2nd place.
    Click HERE to see Italy's song, which achieved 3rd place.
    Now, click HERE to see Estonia's song, which achieved 9th.

    Out of these songs, which do you think deserved to win, and do you like Netta's song?

    In my opinion, I didn't really like Netta. I think Estonia was really good, as well as Cyprus.
    What about you?

    yeah, UK was amazing but then the guy just ruined it all
    if you think about it, it could be your only time to shine and someone spoils it for you and you fail
    which makes you more famous so actually not fail

    Israel's was weird and it's in the Middle East
    Cyprus was decent and it's in the Middle East
    Italy's was OK
    Estonia's was very strange with the dress but it has a nice flag so it gets points for that

    IMO Moldova's was the best, love the rhythm


    Sad for the UK tho that they got invaded by some outrageous political activist their song wasn't even that bad
