Israel debuted in the Eurovision Song Contest in 1973, and was represented by Ilanit who finished in 4th place with the song "Ey Sham". Their first victory came in 1978 with Izhar Cohen and the Alphabeta. Israel won again the following year with Gali Atari & Milk and Honey. Israel's third victory came in 1998 when Dana International performed "Diva" in Birmingham, beating Malta to victory in a tense voting sequence. Israel struggled in the contest during the early-2010s, failing to qualify for the final from 2011-2014. However, since 2015 Israel has seen its fortunes turned around, qualifying every year except 2022. In 2018 Netta won the Eurovision Song Contest with the song "Toy". The song has gone on to be one of the most viewed Eurovision entries of all time on YouTube.
