Best part about Israel winning is the comments the guy handing over the trophy made about the song earlier:
"Youtube forced me to see her. Suddenly, Youtube thought I'd like the song of Israel, and then I opened that and there was a horrible song."
(Personally, I like the song, except for the chorus)

Couldn't find his original tweet and it's probably in Portuguese anyway, so here's a random tweet for source:

Btw, I think the juries should be banished. Seriously, points to Sweden and Austria!? Not to mention all the stuff where jury points go to the "we like this country in general" entries. At least the voters have some sense. (Okay, Austria was okay, but Sweden was pretty much the poor man's Czech Republic this year.)

Juries are complete shit. Been caught selling votes, they judge on the rehearsal and not on the show - and the fact that their unity and coherence with other judges allows them to focus on one act where the voters will spread their votes around allows them to completely stack votes on their favourite candidate and ensure they will win even with mediocre performance in the popular vote. There's simply no bloody fun to be had if before the singing has begun the bookies have already announced the favourite to win and everyone bloody knows it. Absolutely haram tbqh

Gotta say, i'm amused by the vast difference between jury and people when it came to Sweden (high jury, bottom-tier people) and Denmark (low jury, top 5 people). Just goes to show that the juries don't know what they fuck they're doing. :V
To be fair to Israel though, they'd have won even without the jury votes (even though i CRINGED about the "thank you for choosing different"), so I GUESS that's a well deserved victory.

I was so upset that Sweden was getting points and it felt so good when I realised it was only jury points and then the people's voice just totally crushed the guy. Loathed the entry, loathe the guy singing it, loathe his whole family, loathe that he got sent to Eurovision in itself.

Spain should have won though.

All in all I felt there was quite many calm ballady songs this year. I like those.

The costuming choice was a tad tasteless too, I'm all for cultural exchange, but wearing the cultural dress of others to wear around how commercially 'different' you are is a dick move on many levels

Moldova stole my heart. They even had flag-coloured suite for christ's sake!
