Netanyahu does 'chicken dance' with Israeli Eurovision victor

Eurovision victor Charlie McGettigan and broadcaster Mike Murphy have called for a boycott on next year's Eurovision Song Contest in Tel Aviv, Israel.

"I think the people who organise the Eurovision should make a statement by not having the Eurovision in Jerusalem next year, that they should have it somewhere else".

Duffy asked whether such a statement would make a difference, pointing to photos of crowds welcoming Eurovision victor Netta home in Tel Aviv. I think they need to make a decision, but if they don't.

Earlier this week, 58 Palestinian people were killed and over 2,700 others were injured when Israeli forces opened fire on a group of protesters in Gaza.

Charlie McGettigan previously won the Eurovision for Ireland in 1994 with Paul Harrington, performing the song "Rock'n'Roll Kids".

"It was terrible yesterday (Monday) seeing Netanyahu and the Trumps celebrating while people are dead".

"It's a chance for the whole of Europe who are involved in Eurovision to make a statement and sort of say, "Look, we don't agree with this, to celebrate while other people are dying".

Israel's victory, its first since 1998, means it wins the right to host next year's finals, which, in the intervening decades, have transformed into a massive extravaganza with two rounds, tens of thousands of fans, and millions more tuning in around the world.
