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

Israel's singer Netta Barzilai celebrates with the trophy, after winning the final of the 63rd edition of the Eurovision Song Contest 2018, at the Altice Arena in Lisbon, on May 12, 2018.

Twenty thousand adoring fans gathered in Tel Aviv's Rabin Square on Monday night to welcome home Israel's victor of the 2018 Eurovision song contest Netta Barzilai and attend a free performance in honor of her historic win on Sunday.

The rating of the best Eurovision winners was published on the official website of the worldwide song contest, the TSN TV news service reports.

Hod Hasharon resident Barzilai, who studied electronic music in Israel's Rimon School of Music and performed with the Israel Navy Band for her military service, was the house singer at Tel Aviv's Bar Giyora nightclub for three years, toured Israel with an improvisation singing group she cofounded, and is a soloist with the touring group Gaberband. "We got another one last night with Netta's brilliant and explosive victory". By voting her number, took the sixth position in the top ten, and the leader was the victor of the Eurovision-2012 song contest, the singer Loreen with the song "Euphoria".

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

Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu celebrated the win mimicking Netta's dance moves. The results showed that the respondents indicated higher levels of life satisfaction, especially if their country has shown good results in the Eurovision song contest. The first Israeli victor was Yizhar Cohen in 1978 with "Abanibi". Thank you so much. Barzilai's song is a warning to a boy not to treat her like a toy.

She said her selection as Israel's contestant at Eurovision was a form of validation after a childhood marked by teasing over her body, the repeated failure of diets and bouts of bulimia.

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.

Wearing a bandana and a backpack, the man apparently shouted "Nazis of the United Kingdom media, we demand freedom", after grabbing the microphone from the singer.
