Israel won the 2018 Eurovision Song Contest with 529 points, followed at a decent distance by Cyprus with 436 points. Both were top favourites to take the trophy home. Austria's success — a third place with 342 points — came as a surprise.
During her much-anticipated performance, Netta was joined by her pink-haired backing singers and dancers as they do their trademark chicken moves. Also accompanying her on stage are two blocks of shelves filled with 112 Maneki-nekos, the popular Asian beckoning cats often used as lucky charms.
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. It was the very first time Portugal hosted the contest.
Israel also won the first Semi-Final with a grand total of 283 points.
After being crowned winner of the 63rd Eurovision Song Contest, Netta gave a reprise of her song in front of an ecstatic audience.
After the show, Eurovision.tv spoke with Netta on stage.
