Eurovision 2018: Netta wins for Israel with Toy



Israel's Netta has won the Eurovision Song Contest for her quirky dance song Toy - complete with its trademark chicken dance.

 
She had been an early favourite, but the vote went down to the wire with Cyprus finishing in second place.


Netta thanked juries and the public for "choosing different" as she lifted the glass microphone trophy.


UK entrant SuRie, whose performance was interrupted by a stage invader, finished 24th out of the 26 countries.


She was part-way through singing Storm when a man, with a rucksack on his back, ran on and grabbed the microphone from her hands. She was given the chance to perform again but declined.
