On Saturday she became the new Queen of Israel when she won the Eurovision Song Contest 2018 with her song “Toy”. Since then she’s enjoyed a massive welcome reception in Tel Aviv and even done her chicken dance with Israel’s Prime Minister at his official residence.

But the perhaps the funniest moment Netta has had this week took place in the TV studios of “Eretz Nehederet” (A Great Country) — one of Israel’s most popular TV shows. This wasn’t Netta’s first appearance on the show, as the cast performed a Netta imitation right after she won “The Next Star for Eurovision 2018” back in February.

This time Netta got to meet her own impersonator and just couldn’t stay calm about it, as you can see in this video:

Netta’s character is played by the talented actress and stand up comedian Tom Yaar. You can watch her imitation in this video at 15:40.

Here is another funny moment they shared — the original and the imitation side by side. How similar do you think they are?

During the latest episode of the show, Netta was not the only Eurovision star that made an appearance, as the show also featured Izhar Cohen (1978), Dana International (1998) and Milk & Honey (1979) – Click here to watch the video.

At the end of the show Netta was invited to play herself in a special sketch. It turns out that she is not only a talented singer and performer, but also quite a good actress.

Netta called countries that didn’t give her points and tried to figure out what was the reason for that. From Romania, for example, she got the answer: “We’ve heard it many times”, and in Azerbaijan they told her that “Toy” means the goat’s dung in Azeri.

Then Netta’s friends from Eurovision appeared: Cyprus’ Eleni Foureira, Czech Republic’s Mikolas Josef and Denmark’s Rasmussen. They say that Netta invited them to stay with her when they are in Israel, so they came to stay until Eurovision 2019. The funniest part here is Eleni’s imitation where she is doing her “Fuego” moves even while talking.

Netta finally agrees to host them at her place but then she asks: “Why did you in Denmark give me only 3 points?”

As an Israeli, I ask you to ignore Lilia. There are unfortunately Israelis who make war out of everything. If someone does not like Netta’s song then he is sure pro-Palestinian and anti-Israeli. Of course, 99.9% of Israelis understand that this is nonsense and do not want to involve politics with Eurovision because there is simply no connection between the two. Have a nice day from Tel Aviv.

As a fellow israeli, i agree. Lilia’s comments are uncalled for

I do not hate Portugal, in fact, my ancestors lived in Portugal and Spain and were deported from there to Morocco, if you know the history of the expulsion of the Jews of Portugal and Spain? I can get a Portuguese passport if I want to. I do not like Salvador and the condescending manner in which he treats other singers. And there are many insulting comments about Israel and Netta. So I react back. In my opinion I am doing excellent service to my country.

pooky1001

oh i give up!!! I was trying to be nice to you but whats the point, ok you hate Salvador and you hate anyone who doesnt like Netta, good for you. All i did was try my best to show you that people can have any opinion and not expect to be called stupid, ugly, idiots because of that opinion but i guess im wasting my time. I hope everyone has a fun eurovision in Israel.

And what about your friend here calling Netta fat and ugly.. is that ok with you?

Why would you think he is my friend? i have no idea who he his and no its not ok to call someone fat and ugly the same way as its not ok to call Salvador stupid, ugly and wishing he had died from his heart problems.

Wow guys, CHILL. Netta is great and this is funny. Yes she has tons of youtube views and Europe loves her. Now that we’re done with the facts- can we get POLITICS out of this? I get Israeli haters are mad about her victory and Israelis need to defend their country, but STAY OUT OF ESC with your hateful comments please.

Agree! Its about music not about politics

LILIA

Viewing data only in the videos of the official Eurovision youtube channel
Netta- 46 million views on YouTube – the song exists only a few months
Salvador -17 million views in YouTube – the song exists for more than a year
Netta’s song takes Salvador’s song in walking, remind me which song more love?

Roy Moreno
Guest

Do you have any life besides commenting here about Netta? Seriously…
Netta might has more views but Salvador has more points than any other song
I do love Toy more than I love Amar Pelos Dois, but it has nothing to do with this article

salvador’s song is a dull funeral ballad with zero replay value. also his behavior onstage is disturbing. it looks like he’s suffering from sth. and not to mention his obnoxious attitude

LLila

Youtube is more important than points in eurovision for a long Internetional carrere.

João

Don’t flatter yourselves. Netta has more views because people love a good joke, not because they liked it. Read comments and dislikes lol

You are the only joke here

Jim

what matters most is the LIKES because these are the people who vote/buy/support
official videos:netta 580k/salvador 130k
grand final;netta200k/salvador 80k
netta has more haters but they dont really affect her and once her hype gets reduced they’ll disappear

LILIA
Guest

Joao
I suggest that before you call NETTA “fat and ugly” , look at yourself in the mirror and you’ll see a nasty and ugly person!
I personally wouldn’t given the victory to the disgusting Mr. Sorval who laughed and bragged to all the singers. A disgusting man

LILIA
Guest
João And how did Salvador look? Like a monkey in the zoo, missing that would have dumfed him a banana in the middle of his disgusting song. The Eurovision Song Contest in Portugal was in the lowest production in years, the hosts were terrible, and they wore awful clothes. The stage was old fashioned. Only the songs were great and therefore Netta’s victory is more than appreciated because Netta won a songs really hard and excellent. Good for the beautiful and perfect Netta. Israeli pride is just like Gal Gadot Wonder Woman Israeli super star and a big Hollywood star.

Portugal is laughing their way to the bank while they got 100 million of revenue while spending 20 million

Can’t wait for the backlash Israel is going to get next year, you’ll get the same hate you are now sharing, no worries hater

The word is called elegant.
Portugal has personality and they do things their way. Portugal is happy the way they are too, worth is not about wealth

Hope not all portugize are stupid like u..does all porrugize love insulting women and doing them a body shaiming?? Or is it just you?

LLila, im not sure what you are trying to do on this blogg but if its trying to post a good image of Israel you are not doing a very good job. Whenever i open a page on this blogg all i see are comments from you calling people ugly, rude, stupid, you tell people to f*** off, you are particularly nasty to anyone Portuguese and you even called Obama a black monkey!!! I dont understand where all this hate comes from, i dont know anyone from Israel but based on your comments alone im getting nothing but a racist… Read more »
LLila
Guest

No i will not.
You dont know me..im not racist.im just reacting to Israel haters.if you read the contex you will understand im not just rude becouse i want to be..i just answering to people who wrote nasty and mean things.
Like “Fat and Ugly Netta ” why shouldnt i react to that?

pooky1001
Guest

yes there have been nasty comments about Netta and if you wish to reply to them then go ahead but alot of the comments made are just people saying they didnt like the song and as soon as they say that you immediately call them stupid or people who have no taste and you have said many times they are not welcome in your country.

LLila
Guest

Show me an example to those cases..you should read the contex..i response to pepole who wrote they want to boycot Israel that its ok and they not welcome..i never wrote nasty comment to someone who wrote he dont like Toy..

João

you insult me just because i gave my opinion…You think everyone is pro-paslestine! You even insult the previous winner! Its a song contest!Just a song contest
Actually you must have some trauma.

LILIA

You insulted me too, you wrote about fat ugly Netta, are you allowed to insult ?

pooky1001
Guest

Actually yes you did many times, but im not gonna start an arguement with you, i was trying to show you that you are not helping your country by posting nasty comments to everyone but i guess im wasting my time, i was actually trying to be nice but then again i live in Portugal so i assume you hate me anyway as even though im not Portuguese you have been very rude about them so i guess im hated also.

Lisbon was old-fashioned and annoying. The hosts were always listening to what the producer was telling them to do in the earphones lol
They were not comfortable at all ;))))

“Lisbon was old-fashioned and annoying.” Yeah, because Jerusalem is so modern and progressive! At least here in Portugal we don’t kill our neighbours.

Nitzili
Guest

clearly you have no idea about jerusalem and israel’s situation. if you don’t agree with his comment, you can be more mature about it and not drag israel into the discussion. the contest in portugal (who i personally thought was great) has nothing to do with the contest in israel.

Nitzili
Guest

i personally thought this year’s esc was great. portugal were so excited to host for the first time, you could feel it through the tv screen and it was lovely. also daniella ruah, who i’ve been a fan of for years hosted so that was great as well lol, and every single act that participated this year was sooo good. sure, there were some issues but overall it was one of my favourite contests

João
Guest

Esc 2018 was great, and im sure Esc 2019 will be great too
Portugal is a high income economy too…your economy is not even bigger than the portuguese one.
so stop talk nonsense and enjoy Esc

@Amygdal You can’t call someone a supporter of terrorism, show some respect. Maybe that’s something normal for you to walk around calling ppl like that, but keep those comments away from here!! Nobody wants to read stuff like that here.

@wiwibloggs admins I think that this type of comments (which is a personal attack) should be deleted. You’ve been ignoring the comments section since Israel won and it became disgusting to read comments here, just saying.

You’re just the same troll using different accounts to write same stuff about how brilliant is Israel , how LGBT friendly it is and that palestinians are terrorists, you think are we that dumb to not realize that or what?? You can “like” your own comments as much as u want, I can already imagine what kind of human being you are. At this point I blame only wiwibloggs for not banning ur IP adress, they probably like it. Shame srsly..

You know what you can do with your Nobel prizes now we know the committee who attributes them is a bunch of old guys with a past of sexual harassment, Please don’t tell me Netta’s message in “Toy” was not against sexual harassment (of women, but fine), I’d be in shock (*sarcasm*). Netta herself seems a genuinely super nice and funny human being… Read more »

they should have brought a salvador impersonator for some extra laughs (insulting everyone and doing spastic movements while talking)

LILIA

This is not true. The Israeli delegation Organized a party to all the participants and almost all of them appeared at the Israeli party. Netta friend with Jessica from Australia and Said she liked many other songs.
At least Netta Told the media that she loved many other songs from Albania, Switzerland, Australia, Finland, Estonia and Czech Republic, and did not behave as rudely as the Swedish singer who laughed at all the other songs.

LILIA

Netta also said that Eleni is amazing and she was sure Eleni will win

What friends from Eurovision does she have? None, because as it was known by all the participating countries that the Israeli team and delegation were the rudest of them all. Met a lot of Israelis and I can say it hand on heart its true, they’re arrogant and believe that everyone owes them. Nothing against Netta, but there’s something arrogant about the way she did her business.

That’s why all people of Europe voted for Israel 😉

Who care about Salvador and his boring song? NO ONE! DEAL WITH THAT!

João

“Salvador only won becouse he was sick!” You´re sick!
So Netta only won because is fat, ugly and took advantage from metoo movement…
also Israeli government payed for the victory..
ARE WE CLEAR??? the most hated winner song ever is “toy” Thats embarrasing…

Glen1
Guest

@Joao
Apparently Joao is mad because his country got the less points and Catarina Furtado is a very bad host that she committed a mistake and revealed Cyprus was “leading the vote” before actually giving the points hahaha

In 2016 all songs were crap. In 2017 only Salvador’s song was good. In 2018 we had a lot of good songs and favorite countries, so obviously the points were more distributed and Netta is one of the best winners. If not the best

João
Guest

ATTENTION EVERYBODY: We have a spiritual medium here! He knows what im feeling LOOOL
Apparently you don´t know the hostess this year were pretty good, they are among the best host ever! Try again 😉
The songs were better this year i agree…you know why??? Salvador Sobral effect 😉

I don’t think I get your point, it maybe a pre.condition for, say, the hosts and the moderators at the press conferences or on the Red/Blue Carpet (and they were all eurofans this year) but I never knew it was obligatory for people taking part as contestants to Love eurovision. Even for hosts and moderators Knowing about the ESC is surely far more important than Loving it.

@Yussef Even centuries ago “palestinians” never liked Jews. When the Ottoman Empire disappeared “palestinians” tried to kill Jews from that region, and other Arab countries expelled 600000 Jews. Later the world decided Jews and “palestinians” should share the territory (which WAS right). But “palestinians” always betrayed Jews and went on war to destroy and kill them. Jews were (and still are) stronger and won two wars that “palestinians” started. “Palestinians” lost some territory because of that.
