Israel wins Eurovision for the second year in a row!

Israel started entering the Eurovision Song Contest in 1973 and since joining has won the Eurovision Song Contest four times!


The first win was in 1978 with the song “A ba ni bi.”



Since Israel won, the next year they were honored with hosting the competition in Jerusalem.

Due to political pressure from Arab countries, Turkey withdrew their participation - but the 19 other countries who participated in 1978, showed up.


It was an extra special contest because Israel won again - this time with the famous song, “Hallelujah”.


Hallelujah was sung in Hebrew during Eurovision but was later released in English too, so people all over the world could understand the lyrics behind the hopeful, catchy song.


Hallelujah!

Enjoy listening!




English Translation:


Hallelujah

Hallelujah to the world

Hallelujah, everyone will sing

With one single word

The heart is filled with much gratitude

And it also pounds: what a wonderful world


Hallelujah with the song

Hallelujah for a day that shines

Hallelujah for all that has been

And all that is yet to come

Hallelujah


Hallelujah to the world

Hallelujah, everyone will sing

And the great bells

Will echo with many sounds

And with us they will say Hallelujah


Hallelujah with the song

Hallelujah for a day that shines

Hallelujah for all that has been

And all that is yet to come

Hallelujah


Hallelujah for everything

Praise tomorrow and yesterday

Hallelujah and hold each other's hands

And sing from one heart

Hallelujah


Hallelujah with the song

Hallelujah for a day that shines

Hallelujah for all that has been

And all that is yet to come

Hallelujah


Hallelujah for all that has been

And all that is yet to come

Hallelujah
