This weekend on Eurovil: Birmingham 1998

by Itamar Barak 51 views

As promised last weekend, Israel's broadcaster IBA is webcasting on its official Eurovision website Eurovil, another full length Eurovision Song Contest: This time it's the 1998 Eurovision Song Contest from Birmingham, United Kingdom.

The 1998 Eurovision Song Contest from Birmingham is one of the most memorable for any Israeli, since Dana International won the contest with Diva, after a nerve racking voting procedure, which let Israel win for the 3rd time, and sent disappointed runner-up Chiara of Malta to the 3rd place (Chiara will try once again for her country this year in Kyiv).

Unlike last weekend, the contest will be webcast in its full length, featuring Yigal Ravid (who would be the Eurovision Song Contest's presenter the year later) before the show, and then the whole contest including the voting. After the live show, the webcast continues with comments by IBA's television manager, live congratulations and an interview with Dana International, live from the National Indoor Arena's green room.
