Israel's 'beautiful creature' Netta Barzilai qualifies for Eurovision 2018 final


Now she has to compete in the final competition, which will take place on Saturday, may 12.

"It's just whether I should do it for the United Kingdom or Finland or some other country".

Answering questions from the attending media, Gert Kark confirmed that "we'll continue the online voting implemented in the last Junior Eurovision, and we have also worked in improving the platform in the last few months".

This year however, the United Kingdom is represented by Eurovision: You Decide victor SuRie, and she's determined to win.

Israel has made the final round for the past four years consecutively, and has won the competition three times.

Held since 1956, Eurovision is the longest-running global song competition broadcast on television. "That's something I've been great at, no doubt about it". Saara Aalto from Finland performs the song "Monsters" in Lisbon, Portugal, Monday, May 7, 2018 during a dress rehearsal for the Eurovision Song Contest.

Greece was one of the 19 countries to take part in Tuesday's semi-final with Yianna Terzi performing Oneiro Mou (My Dream), but was unsuccessful. "I think that is a very, very big responsibility so, if people believe in me, if they want to put this responsibility on me, I'd do it".

It is Cyprus' 31st time participating in Eurovision after joining the song contest in 1981, but has yet to emerge as the victor, placed fifth three times.

Eurovision 2018 airs Saturday BBC at 8pm.

"The song, Storm, is such a catchy, universal, uplifting anthem and the production around it is going to be really cool", she told TV Times.
