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?”

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.

” 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.” This is just your poor and hatefull opinion
EBU has a very different opinion 🙂

Awesome, though I am unsure why they picked Rasmussen and Mikolas? They were extremely lame but apparently the easiest ones to cosplay, and also Denmark gave low points to Israel, so yeah, it’s all about mockery, I guess…

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.

netta has more haters but they dont really affect her and once her hype gets reduced they’ll disappear

Oh yea,and her winning with 529 was because people like good jock,and fact that she’s literally hitting the charts all over the world it’s just because people like ‘ good jocks’ .stick your head in your butthole

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 »

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.

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.

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.

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

@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.

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.

“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…

@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

ATTENTION EVERYBODY: We have a spiritual medium here! He knows what im feeling LOOOL
